Format: Audio CD
Most of the albums in the Super hits series of albums are greatest hits collections, but this is a straight re-issue of Ray's 1984 album of duets with country singers, originally titled Friendship. It was originally released on vinyl, then later on CD with the same artwork. That version of the CD was replaced by this album, but the title Super hits is very confusing. (More recently, the album has been re-issued again, this time with the original artwork and title but re-mastered and with two bonus tracks.)

It is fitting that Ray should have recorded this album - after all, he recorded R+B versions of country songs back in the sixties and took them high in the pop charts including I can't stop loving you, a number one in Britain and America. Those records didn't sound country, but twenty years later, here is Ray singing country and having a great time doing it.

The big hit here (a country number one) is Seven Spanish angels, the duet with Willie Nelson that closes the album. I love all the songs but I particularly like Who cares (with Janie Fricke, the only female singer featured), Two old cats like us (with Hank Williams Junior) and We didn't see a thing (with George Jones and Chet Atkins). Other guests include Johnny Cash, B J Thomas, Ricky Skaggs, Merle Haggard and the Oak ridge boys.

This is an upbeat country album that shows just how talented Ray Charles was - one of the few singers equally brilliant in several different genres of music.

This CD is one of the best CD's I've ever purchased. If you're a Ray Charles fan, it's a must for your collection. Also, it's extremely hard to find in stores.

I remember in my youthful drinking days that the bartenders knew when to start calling the cabs...it was the 7th chorus of Seven Spanish Angels.
Hearing that song again sung by the Genius Charles and the master Nelson brought back so many memories.
They make it a beautiful wondrous song once again.

A few people, Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson, and Ray Charles are such brilliant musicians that when other people play with them the other people sound better than they normally do.

My favorite part of this CD is the first fifty seconds of "This Old Heart". I was looking for recent blues work and discovered Ray Charles from Tony Bennett's "Play'n With My Friends...". I immediately wanted to hear more of that kind of Ray Charles, but this release is all C&W style. If you don't like the C&W style then you probably won't enjoy this. Not to say the performances aren't excellent. Next time i'll, bite the bullet and install RealAudio so that I can listen to the song samples BEFORE purchasing.

This is a wonderful album of duets. Charles artfully complements his guests in this delightfully sung work, while holding his own. For those not familiar with his contributions to Country music, this album is a required listening experience.
