Covering much of the same ground as the other share from Ray Charles (no, the other Ray Charles) that I just posted, this LP is a little more geared towards the Winter season instead of just Christmas. In fact, it's part of a series for the seasons, one record for each. There's even a sort of best-of I've seen, featuring a few tracks from each of the four LPs. Anything to squeeze a few more dollars out of the record buying public, I guess. I actually had a copy of this LP up on the turntable earlier this year in hopes of getting a remastered version to you this season, but the copy I had in front of me sounded pretty crummy, so I didn't see much point in giving you that. Hopefully I'll stumble across a better copy sometime in the coming year and be able to record that one. In the meantime, enjoy this one, a record that I've been touting the virtues of since 2005, The Ray Charles Singers-Winter Wonderland (MGM E3387, Mono, 1956).
