It's the perfect introduction to a perfectly strange album."

These are not the sort of Steely Dan songs favored by smooth-jazz stations."

Ray Charles
All Time Great Country and Western Hits

  (Item #: charlallti_1810x) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • A stunning sounding copy with Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on sides two, three and four and solid Double Plus (A++) sound on the first side
  • What was especially shocking about this shootout is that in some ways the best sounding copies of the reissue not just equal but best their original album counterparts
  • Twenty-two songs on two LPs, including huge hits like I Can't Stop Loving You, You Don't Know Me, Oh Lonesome Me, Bye Bye Love, and much more - no wonder AMG gave both discs 5 stars
  • This is some big, bold, absolutely glorious Tubey Magical analog - the tape to disc transfer is Hard To Fault (HTF), making a mockery of the audiophile remasters to come

  • Allmusic notes: "...one of those instrumentals, a cover of the Clovers' "One Mint Julep," would give Charles one of his most unpredictable (and best) early-'60s hits."
