May's Underappreciated Music: James Ray, I've Got My Mind Set On You

This is my first attempt at a new (to me) blog meme, Underappreciated Music, appearing the last Thursday of every month on several blogs, some of which also take part in Tuesday's Overlooked Film/TV. My entry this month is the original version of "I've Got My Mind Set On You," recorded by R&B singer James Ray in 1962, but became a #1 hit for George Harrison in 1987. It definitely sounds like an early '60s R&B tune, because it is, but is as enjoyable as Harrison's fine remake. Enjoy!

For comparison's sake, here is the remake by Harrison.

Have a great weekend!
