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 country!
