Great choice of songIt sound fantastic. I would consider that choice of song a tribute to Georgia and Ray Charles. The southern melody and calm tempo was pleasant. Actually I had to listen to it twice. Sincerely H.G. Hustla
GeorgiaHi Bob, thank you for sharing your rendition of this very classic Ray Charles number, one of my all-time favourites. Your voice certainly suits this song and your interpretation was a wonderful tribute to an immortal legend. Great job!
GeorgiaAwesome rendition of the classic. Would like to hear your voice louder in the mix. It's a great vintage tone. This is a song that you either do your own version(which better be something good) or do the song like the original artist. Bobby Stone nails it. What great music and background vocals.
Nice CutGood singing nice arrangement! It would have been nice to hear some lead guitar in there. The arrangement was a little too much like the Ray Charles classic but it was adequately done but could have used a more personal touch to give it some originality and a different twist.
GeorgiaIt is hard to do a cover song when everyone has in mind what the original artist did when they sang it. You had good vocals and the background music was good. I would love to hear your voice on a song that is not done so much. Good job!!
GeorgiaA super cover of one of my favorite Ray Charles songs . Excellent vocals , really love the background band . Ray would have been pleased with this cover . I wish Bobby luck in all his music , Cliff
GeorgiaStunning Bobby! I cannot fault this cover of Ray Charles old classic chart topper! The vocalist has a beautiful bluesy tone. I found the whole piece was second to only that famous crooner. I wish I could see and hear this live. Even so, the recording quality is top notch! Backup vocals are perfection. The orchestra is world class. Finally, the percussion soft brush or muted is also perfection. A real treat.
A classicNice job on this timeless classic. This is very Ray Charles like, although I would have preferred a newer more personal take. But that said, every artist interprets the music in the way that it means something to them and this is so classic sounding. The backing singers sound like a choir, the strings remind me of an old classic movie and the Bobby's vocals are spot on! All in all if you like the classics, this one will keep you coming back for more!
Hello Bob Stonehill aka Bobby StoneMr.Bobby Stone nothing like a old school classic song here is my review its old school and I am old school as well I thought you did a great job the music was nice a well arranged tune I look forward to hearing more music from good job from James Milligan New Experience Records/Rick Ross/Music Group/UMG.
GeorgiaNice I felt that with your natural vocal voice you could have created something newer and placed a uniqueness to it....but nice job...plus anytime you attempt to copy it's very hard to replace ...however it's very nice you kept the flow and maintained vocal control for the most part..I'm not trying to discourage you by any means but nice job...
Bobby Stone GeorgiaBobby you picked a great song, however I would personally rather have heard you record it live with a Five or six piece solid band or live music, rather than using an over produced track, leaving the listener with the idea that you are actually trying to fill Bro. Ray Charles' shoes. That is might tall order to attempt. You have a pleasant voice and no doubt you could win first place with this track at a local Karaoke Pub Competition. I do believe however that you would fair much better with a good band backing you where you can put your own spin on the song and let Bobby Stone shine. Having worked over the years of my career with Ray Charles and many others of his caliber, I have heard him do it both ways as well and he did it better with his band as well, the Record Labels back in his day were prone to over produce songs and syrup them up especially the Black American Singers to make them sound more White. Don;t be afriad to go back and do it Your Way. Good luck. Tom Wiggins an da boys in da band who played that song last Saturday night too.
Wonderful Memories.Absolutely beautiful arrangement of the Ray Charles classic. Bobby Stone pays homage to the man some feel was the single most important bridge from the 50's to the 60's. Bobby has the chops to pull off a soulful performance worthy of the Ray Charles legacy. Thank you for this wonderful performance.
Georgia callingA very well done version of a song that would humiliate most male singer's however you capture the original essence beautifully. The background singer's also put up some beautiful harmonies against your soulful rendition. My biggest critique would be that the song sounds as professional as Ray Charles version and that can be both good and bad. It's a wonderful accomplishment if that's what you want but also a disappointment if you want pure unique sound that says hey I'm me.. tough call but its still a great great effort
RespectfulA respectful treatment of Georgia from Bob Stonehill. Definitely recommend this. Great vocals over a richly textured backing track. There's also a tight dynamic full of energy and harmony.
This is my favourite Ray Charles SongHi Bob as i stated in my title this is my favourite Ray Charles song and i have done several covers of it myself ! I don't think you have done a bad job of it here but would like to hear it with the vocals more upfront and maybe with less reverb on the vocals ! But all in all pretty good it's a loverly song to sing and I have never release any of my own versions as they just don't compare to the original
