From Kurtco
I have nothing to say. Ray Charles is one of the greatest artists of all time. He is best known for his soul songs, but "Modern Sounds In Country And Western Music" is the best country album of all time in my opinion. Usually, I'm not a big fan of country albums but this album is really different because it mixes western music and soul. This album is absolutely original, revolutionary, exceptional. Thank you, Ray.

Excellent collection of songs by one of the best that's ever been. But I recommend the Vol 1 & 2 version.

Ray proves that he was one of the most versatile artists ever. I bought this album because Ray was not an ordinary entertainer who did country songs, he was an extraordinary entertainer who did country songs and kept it COUNTRY.

I prefer Ray when he's doing straight up R&B, the ballads usually leave me a bit cold, so not a great fan of this.

His voice was never better. So much soul. Not quite Otis Redding, but close.
