8-Track Hits (2 stars)

Well, if you still have a working 8-track stereo, this is right up your alley! In all seriousness, there are two fine cuts on this disc, old time versions of What'd I Say and Night Time, two of Ray's classics. The rest is mostly Ray's third tier stuff, with better work found on other CD's.


Some of Ray's great original recordings (5 stars)

Along with my friends, I was a major Ray fan as a teen in the early to mid 1960s. This album isn't 'b' or 8-track cuts, it contains some of his original hits, some of them not that widely available or known today. Every song is a gem and really swings. Highly recommended!
