No pedal steel or fiddles here, just a fine store of inimitable interpretations.

I have nothing to say. Ray Charles is one of the greatest artists of all time. He is best known for his soul songs, but "Modern Sounds In Country And Western Music" is the best country album of all time in my opinion. Usually, I'm not a big fan of country albums but this album is really different because it mixes western music and soul. This album is absolutely original, revolutionary, exceptional. Thank you, Ray.

Best track: "Bye Bye Love"

Um álbum intimista que combina bem com a voz e piano de Ray e mostra como dois gêneros que em uma leitura rasa se mostram bem distantes tem vários pontos de convergência. Lindo.

A new look of country standards performed in a lushly but deeply interracial spirit.
