* Quincy Jones said of ‘Booty Butt””Ray got to groovin’ so good on Booty Butt that he couldn’t resist sneakin’ in a little soulful hum, and that got so good he had to go back and overdub it a few times more. And if you think Ray Charles sounds good by himself, just imagine four of him singing together.”
