James Ray- St James Infirmary

James Ray is criminally underrated.  Short, short career, that might have something to do with it.  No hits on which to anchor the career either, unless you count, "I Got My Mind Set on You," later covered by George Harrison. 

What a voice.  I love this guy.  Died young, that's the story.  RIP brother.

I am informed by Professor Google, via the Wiki, that James Ray did have a hit, "If You've Got to Make a Fool of Somebody." He died in his early twenties, a lifestyle death. Very interesting guy, with a really great voice.

Sounds like the Animals may have stolen something:)
