23 of 1001 Albums: Ray Charles' The Genius of Ray Charles
Most the songs lulled a bit for me, but there were a few I really enjoyed. My personal favorite was "Come Rain or Come Shine". I can see this one ending up somewhere on my playlist. The vocals are really passionate, and it seems he's feeling what he is actually singing.
Ray Charles is a legend for a reason though. His music does seem like a first for the list, and I'm sure he inspired many after him including many artist today. Listening to this album has actually made me want to pick up the movie Ray, which I haven't seen yet. I heard a lot about it, so hopefully it lives up to the hype.
I wish I could think of more to say, but the album wasn't bad, but neither was it something I could ramble on about. He is enjoyable to listen to though. This is the last day of listening to music in the 50s! Tomorrow I will be starting on music in the 60s, and I'm really excited about that since I can think of several bands that I can't wait to check out.
