Years Later, It Still Sounds Great!

"Back in the 1980's, Ray Charles recorded an album that featured him doing duets with some of the popular acts of the time. The exception would be Tony Bennett. But there are a lot of artists who are on this CD with Ray Charles.
The disc starts off with a duet with Hank Williams Jr. called "Two Old Cats Like Us." Another fun song is the hit single "We Didn't See A Thing" with George Jones. It's about two guys who are stepping out on their wives. And even though they see one another, they swear that they don't know anything about the whereabouts of each other. There's also the duet that Ray does with Billy Joel on the song "Baby Grand." It also includes Rays hit single "Seven Spanish Angels."
And since the passing of Ray Charles, this collection of songs seems even more meaningful and fun to listen to. This album is primarily country, so you may want to keep that in mind if you decide to purchase it.
And if you do choose to get this CD, make sure that you get the one that is NOT copy protected if you plan on playing it in a computer/laptop or your car. Some players don't like copy protected CD's and will refuse to play them.
