Ray Charles makes any song that he sings his own. This song is certainly no exception. I've heard several versions over the years but none of them can compare to Mr. Charles'. Sitting at the piano and backed by an orchestra, Ray sings this song with an intimate feeling that nobody can match! The boxset that Rhino put out in 1997 is a great compilation that features tracks from several labels that Ray Charles has recorded for over the years and is worth every penny!!!

Who is Smokey and is that really his sister singing too? A euphonious delight. Oh I'd love to hear the album or even the b-side. Unmissable.
