AllMusic Review by

This single-disc collection includes Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 of Ray Charles' 1962 landmark Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music in their entireties. A veritable treasure trove of soulful country that featured future Charles standards like "I Love You So Much It Hurts," "I Can't Stop Loving You," "You Are My Sunshine," and "Take These Chains from My Heart," it's hard to argue against any of these 24 tracks being called anything but classics.
