CLASSIC RAY STARTS STREAMING
2/15/19

Ray Charles’s classic records for ABC-Paramount, released between 1960 and 1973, have been noticeably absent from streaming services. That means no original versions of “Georgia on My Mind,” “Crying Time,” “Let’s Go Get Stoned,” “Busted”—you get the picture.

The first step toward remedying that situation has begun at NPR Music where Brother Ray’s classic Modern Sounds In Country and Western Music Volumes 1 & 2 is streaming ahead of Vol. 1’s release on vinyl, CD and digitally on 2/22.

The groundbreaking integration of soul and country music, Modern Sounds In Country and Western Music includes Charles’ versions of “I Can’t Stop Loving You” and “You Don’t Know Me.” It was the first country album in history to achieve Gold record status.

Here’s to hoping Crying Time gets the same treatment.
