Who Needs It?

"Ray Price is, was, and probably always be a great singer, but this is not the album to buy if you're looking for an overview of his biggest hits. His original hits were made for Columbia starting in the '50s, and you need to hear the originals to get the full impact of this great man's work. These "warmed-over" versions just don't have the edge and energy of the originals, which in addition to Ray's great vocals also feature groundbreaking instrumental work from some of the greatest country musicians of all time. Look for albums on Columbia/Sony to hear what a great artist Ray REALLY is. I would suggest "The Essential Ray Price" as a great place to start."

"I have been a Ray Price fan for more years than I like to own up to, and the man has never had a bad song,, but "Heartache by the number" is special and so is "Crazy Arms'so I have to have this album,he has that special voice that others imitate but cant quite copy,there is only one Ray Price and as his style has evolved he just got better but I love all phases of his music and hope to someday meet the 'Man behind the music'..but I will probably have to settle for every Ray Price album I can get my hands on,and Amazon has them .you have to have this one "heartache 'is one of his best.he has the kind of music that never goes out of style."
