Ray Price R.I.P. January 12, 1926 – December 16, 2013

Ray Price,one of country music's legends,  passed away today. He'll be remembered for his classic country songs like "Heartaches by the Number" and "Crazy Arms". I had the privilege of seeing him in person during his prime during the early 70s.

Ray Price had one of the best stage shows I have ever seen. It was the era before synthesizers. If  an artist wanted to duplicate the sound of his LP's, he/she would have to bring along his orchestra. Like the big bands of the 1940s, Ray traveled with an orchestra. He performed in a tux...and cowboy boots. 

His concert featured his great hits...including his crossovers like "For the Good Times". His was the first concert I remember the audience rising to their feet to give him a standing ovation. Amid cries of encore...he heard someone yell out do "Danny Boy"...He pointed to them and said "Ask and you shall receive". He received another standing ovation...bowed and left the stage for the final time.

Goodbye Ray...Rest In Peace. Thanks for all the good times.
