Actual album is OK at best. I love Ray in his primed but he is far past it here. Interesting choices and coupling but his voice was pretty much shot by this point. It's really kind of sad that it was made. Some love it so go figure. If you want to hear a truly good version of You Don't Know Me, one of the tracks, go to Ray's early 60's version on Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. Truly a classic album and the sound is great, that from someone who does high end audio for a living. I strongly encourage you to pick it up and it's available on LP. Just buy from someone other than Amazon.
Cover was in great shape, and the record looked clean. I noticed it plays on the 45 speed instead of 33.
