Synopsis

Amazon.com
Ray Charles's entry in Rhino's Love Songs series--joining volumes by Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding--is as stellar and idiosyncratic as the man himself. It collects recordings from the '50s to the '90s, with slyly offbeat choices such as "Gee, Baby Ain't I Good to You" and Charles's transformation of "Till There Was You" alongside signature tracks such as "Georgia on My Mind," "I Can't Stop Loving You," and "Come Rain or Come Shine." --Rickey Wright

CD Reviews

20th century, 21st century...whatever...it's the voice!...
R. Davis | louisville, ky | 02/18/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...mr. charles is a baaad man!...his sound/his voice is magnificent...the government should mandate a law forcing all radio stations to start their day off with at least one brother ray song...very soulful indeed...
(now his backup singers on here are very quite corny at times...somebody shoulda amped their mics down!)
this may not be the disc to start your collection with, but if you love some ol' bluesy/jazzy-lounge love songs, then get this and go with it!"
Very Soulful

"If you love Ray,you will most certainly love this CD.Lots of his finest efforts to soothe and relax you.No manner how many times I have heard"Georgia on My Mind," I get a lump in my throat.The label "Genius" was deservedly bestowed on this most wonderful man."
