Side A, we're talking about great great music. I'd end up deciding somewhere around 4 stars. Unfortunately, side B brings this record down. It seems to run out of gas and lose the swing that gives the first five songs that drive.
"What I'd Say" is probably one of Ray's most well-known songs, and quite possibly one of my favorites of his. I only wish he could have kept up the charisma throughout the entirety of the record. By "Tell All the World About You" a belabored feel begins to take on the songs as it rolls to an end. This only becomes evident after I'm out of breath from groovin' to the A-side. Next thing I know, I'm flipping it over and finding my way back to my seat.
In any case, If these kind of tunes, especially on side A, don't get your feet moving and your arms going at the same time -- fingers a-snappin' -- nothing will.
