It's interesting to note that Bobby was a huge Ray Charles fan. This CD is just about a note for note cover of Ray's songs, so if your looking for originality this will not be it. Bobby does though give it his best and does a great job! This was recorded at the time that Ray and Bobby were both with Atlantic records. It was a nice addition to my Darin collection.

Bobby Darin Sings Ray Charles shows that Bobby Darin could take a song made famous by the great Ray Charles and do it up right in a way that surely would have made Ray Charles proud! Bobby had a very natural gift for being able to deliver a song with the best of them; and it shows through so clearly on this album. The quality of the sound is excellent and I like that artwork as well.

The CD starts with Bobby Darin singing "What'd I Say." "What'd I Say" sounds terrific and Bobby infuses this with a great deal of energy. The musical accompaniment makes good use of the guitars, the drums and even the percussion; but they never steal the show away from Bobby--he's standing front and center, right where he always belonged! I love it. "I Got A Woman" was a huge hit for Ray; and when Bobby Darin sings this he does great justice to Ray Charles' ballad. Bobby sways brightly as he delivers this ballad with all his heart and soul; and this was precisely what made Bobby's audiences adore him so much.

"Tell Me How Do You Feel" has a nice flavor to it that I really like; and Bobby never lets go of a superfluous note! Bobby does this with panache and those backup female vocalists come in at just the right times to enhance the ballad instead of making it sound too florid. "Tell Me How Do You Feel" works very well in Bobby's capable hands; and it's a highlight of this fine album. In addition, "The Right Time" was always one of my very favorite Ray Charles tunes; Ray could sing this REALLY well and Bobby's rendition is just about as good--but in its own way. Bobby plays with the tempo and the key changes just ever so slightly to put his own stamp on this excellent musical number. It works well, too!

I grew up listening to Bobby Darin, but somehow I missed his covering of Ray Charles. I really like this disc. It stays in my truck player and reminds me how great Ray was and what a loss it was that Bobby died so young.

I liked the songs. But this should have been re-mastered. The sound quality was very muddy.

I bought the CD because I like both entertainers, and it more than fulfilled my expectations.
