“The words to country songs are very earthy like the blues, see, very down. They're not as dressed up, and the people are very honest and say, ‘Look, I miss you, darlin', so I went out and I got drunk in this bar.' That's the way you say it. Where in Tin Pan Alley you will say, ‘Oh, I missed you darling, so I went to this restaurant and I sat down and I had dinner for one.' That's cleaned up now, you see? But country songs and the blues is like it is.” — Ray Charles (speaking to Ben Fong-Torres for Rolling Stone) Presented here is the complete classic Ray Charles LP Modern Sounds in Country & Western Music (ABC Paramount ABC-410), presenting amazing arrangements by Marty Paich, Gerald Wilson and Gil Fuller. One of Ray Charles' best-selling albums ever, it earned Charles a Grammy Award for Best Rhythm & Blues Recording at the 1963 Grammy Awards, while the album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. In 1999, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. A further song from the same sessions that wasn't included on the original LP has been added as a bonus.
