Mastered by Doug Sax and pressed at RTI.

Ray Charles is such a great, expressive singer that his piano prowess is often overlooked, to say nothing of his alto saxophone playing. This disc shows that Ray was not only a better bluesman than most people know, but also a pianist at home in the hard bop context, if bluesier than most jazz pianists of his generation. In addition, saxophonists Hank Crawford and David "Fathead" Newman, whose respective sounds were as much a part of the classic Charles style as was the leader, turn in fine solos throughout. Truly a must for fans of Charles' powerful overall style.

I was turned on this this album by a forum member who swore it was black and smack in the face when things picked up. I removed the album from orig packaging and did use the RCM just brushed it and played. Quiet and well engineered I loved it so much I bought for a buddy to add to his collection. For the $ you cant beat this Ray Charles album it was just done right!
