Brother Ray was just about to enter an era of nearly unparalleled greatness when these tracks were recorded in the early-to-mid '50s. Unfortunately, "just about" in this case means Hallelujah, I Love Her So is hardly essential. Don't misunderstand me, none of these songs are bad ... in fact, the title track, I Got A Woman, and Greenbacks are solid precursors to the rootsy soul music that was to come ... but it's clear that Ray hasn't yet found his voice. I suppose an appropriate comparison might be to the early Stones albums, like 12x5 and Rolling Stones Now. These albums are entertaining and certainly have their moments, but by and large they're noteworthy as foundation pieces.
If you're a Ray Charles newbie, I suggest starting with Ray Charles Live, The Genius Of Ray Charles, or Genius + Soul = Jazz and then work your way through his late '50s/early '60s catalog.
