Let the good times roll, indeed. Taking the message of the first song on this thoroughly legendary 12-song set to heart, Ray Charles lives up to the album's title and more, in the process completing one of the most focused, cohesive, and expertly played classic R&B albums ever recorded. It's not for nothing that Rolling Stone ranked it #263 on the magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Having languished with passable albeit insufficient sonics for too long, Mobile Fidelity has given it the treatment it's always deserved.
