Merging the sounds of '50s R&B with the power of gospel vocals may have been conceived by some as the devils work, but as we all know, Ray forged quite the career out of it and became a pioneer and a major influence by devising a whole new form of black pop music. It is here though that we have both volumes of 'Modern Sounds in Country Music' with their wonderful, unique and groundbreaking fusion of jazz, R&B and C&W.
The first volume topped the US LP charts for 14 weeks, selling an estimated two million copies, and span off two multi-million-selling singles: 'I Can't Stop Loving You'/'Born to Lose' and 'You Don't Own Me'/'Careless Love'. The second volume sold a million copies and yielded three further hits: 'You Are My Sunshine', 'Your Cheatin' Heart' and the million selling 'Take These Chains from My Heart'.
Also included are two bonus tracks which include yet another million-seller in the form of 'Georgia on My Mind'.
If you only ever bought one Ray Charles compilation, it would have to be this one!
