This double CD collects not only Brother Ray's best-known '50s and '60s singles, but some choice semi-obscurities (the 1953 jump blues "Mess Around," his 1959 cover of Louis Jordan's "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Cryin'") that earn their places next to "What'd I Say" and "I Can't Stop Loving You." The man's originality and infectious feeling bleed through on each of these 36 tracks, whether he's transforming "One Mint Julep" or "America the Beautiful" or collaborating (separately) with Willie Nelson and Chaka Khan. --Rickey Wright
Top customer reviews
There are only a few songs that I love that are not in this collection. They are:
Born To Lose
Leave My Woman Alone
I Believe To My Soul
In The Heat Of The Night (on the movie soundtrack)
These four songs are available on Amazon MP3 downloads.
I highly recommend this collection for all Ray Charles fans.
