As you can see all the great material is here on this disc and it is just one great performance after another.

From the opening track of his signature piece "The In Crowd" to the last track "Soul Man" it is just a complete joy to listen to, with the crowd really getting in to it.

We all know that Ramsey Lewis is now with Urban Knights, but this catches him with all his great material on one CD.

Don't miss it.
I agree, this is a great album. One of the few that always makes my wife say "could you turn that up?"
I also have and enjoy this CD.
Thanks for this info. I'll be sure to add this one to my collection.
I have "Wade in the Water" on LP & "Appasionata" on CD - also very good albums.
Any comments on how the recording sounds ?
The Ramsey Lewis CD in this thread sounds very goodand Verve did an outstanding job of putting these selections together. No dissappointment here.
Hey Ferrari,
yesterday I received the "Finest Hour" CD (Verve label) & it really is very good! The "the 'in' crowd" track really got me going & I can see why he received a Grammy in 1966 for it!
Good recommendation. Thanks!
My reply was made with not much thought as I look back at the original post, that is not the CD I have; I have "Time Flies", which I like.
