Ray Charles - Atlantic 1037 (1953)

Just gave this side a listen and was blown away by the style. Never really got into Ray Charles and only knew him from his hits...and the great song That Spirit Of Christmas from the movie Christmas Vacation.

The interplay between the piano and guitar is hypnotic. Searching to find who the guitar player was, I found out that it was Mickey Baker of Mickey & Sylvia fame...Love Is Strange...which captured a whole new audience after playing a prominent role in Dirty Dancing.

I only wish that I had found a better copy of this song as it is a little noisy.
