A couple of CDs from Amazon arrived for me yesterday:
1. Ray! (OST)
2. Ray Charles -- Genius Loves Company
3. Dire Straits -- Dire Straits (their first album)
Of the three, the second, Genius Loves Company, is a remarkable album. A combination of songs for every mood, i think i shocked the LRT-riding public when i screamed "Fever!" in time with Mr Ray Charles. Punctuated with the Straits' infectious "Sultans of Swing", i don't think my iPod has been happier for quite some time.
Extremely highly recommended for lovers of the blues/R&B/jazz -- Ray did pretty well in the Grammy's recently. Its sad that he passed away before he could collect the Grammy's himself.
