Ray Stevens....320 Kbps


If you are like me and like to hear different interpretations of standard songs then this might be the one for you to have a listen too... every track is so far from the original that you could be listening to a different song...The whole L/P has a Hill-Billy/Western slight feel to it but it is very cool...just imagine "Lady Of Spain" done as "Rock & Roll" and you might get some idea !!

P.S. This is a great L/P and well worth a won't hear the like of this again.....Unless "Ray" decides  after 37 years to do a follow up L/P of popular songs done in  his way !!....just been on YouTube to see if there was any "Vids" of any of the tracks but there wasn't anything...BUT thought that the one below is worth a "Giggle" at !!!!!! 

1. Misty
2. Indian Love Call
3. Over The Rainbow
4. Oh Lonesome Me
5. Sunshine
6. Cow Cow Boogie

2. Deep Purple
3. Mockingbird Hill

5. Lady Of Spain
