#260: The Genius of Ray Charles by Ray Charles

3.01.2012


The Genius of Ray Charles by Ray Charles (1959)

Favorite Track(s): "It Had to Be You" and "When Your Lover Has Gone" and "Just For a Thrill" and "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying" and "Come Rain or Come Shine"

Thoughts: I definitely enjoyed listening to this album, but it just didn't knock my socks off. I know Ray Charles is one of the best ever, but I didn't love it as much I love this kind of music when sung by Frank or Ella or Billie or Nat.

Is This Better Than Help!?: As good I'd say.
