Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music Volumes 1 & 2
by Ray Charles
Released: Apr 1962
Label: Concord Records
A true American maverick, Ray Charles released numerous albums documenting his love for blending rhythm & blues, Nashville country and brassy uptown jazz. None, however, are more beloved and influential as Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music Volumes 1 & 2, originally released as separate discs back in 1962, at the very height of the civil rights movement. Among the classics: marvel at how Ray transforms the hillbilly ballad "Worried Mind" into lush, soulful chunk of countrypolitan.
