Ray Charles Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music Import LP
Reissue of 1962 Album!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 105/500!
1962's Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music is regarded by many as Ray
Charles's finest studio album. A departure from his earlier work for ABC and
Atlantic, this LP features Charles's reworkings of country standards in his
inimitable pop-R&B style. In addition to being a damn fine album, it was also a
landmark release as it bridged the racial divide between country music and R&B
and marked one of the earliest albums on which a black artist had complete
control over his own recordings. A truly monumental piece of 20th-century
American music history, one that is essential to any collector of R&B or
