AllMusic Review by

This is a well-chosen 16-track anthology covering Charles's Atlantic years, 1953-1959. It contains the #1 R&B hits "I've Got A Woman," "Drown In My Own Tears," and "What'd I Say," along with other memorable recordings. The only reason it is denied a rating as the place to start listening to Ray Charles is that it is a U.K. import on a small label and therefore not readily available in U.S. record stores.
