Ray Stevens, The Best of Ray Stevens, Mercury? SR 61272, and Gitarzan, Monument records, SLP 18115. 1969.
Ray Stevens has about 17 different versions of “Best of” or “Greatest hits” collections. Think I exaggerate? This is probably the first one. I like the wild psychedelic trading card looking cover. Looks an awful lot like a cleaner version of Big Brother and the Holding Company’s Cheap Thrillscover by Robert Crumb. Ray Stevens used to just do a lot of Coasters songs, but eventually got to writing a whole bunch of his own.
