Nothing wrong with Ray Charles, but this album didn't really pique my interest.

An enjoyable album. Not quite as great as the ridiculous title suggests. Still full of good songs though.

Band arrangements are over the top, but his vocals here are at his best, mixing soul, rock&roll, and jazz all into one. This LP is takes "Big Band" and turns it on its arse.

From junodog4
Early Ray Charles was grittier and more soulful, and therefore better than his late 60s and beyond work. This is an essential album.
