Ray Stevens...Unreal!!! was the seventh studio album of Ray Stevens and his second for Barnaby Records, released in 1970. Two singles ("America, Communicate With Me" and "Sunset Strip") were lifted from the album and were moderately successful on the Hot 100 pop singles chart. Each single reached the Top-20 on the Billboard Adult-Contemporary chart, indicating that Stevens' appeal, even as early as 1970, lay with the adult music buyers rather than the kids and teenagers. The tenth track was written by Ray's brother, John Ragsdale. For those who didn't already know, Ray's birth name is Harold Ray Ragsdale. When he became a recording artist in the late 1950s, he started going by the name of Ray Stevens. His stage name is derived from his own middle name, Ray, and his mother's maiden name of Stevens.
On May 17, 2005, Collectables Records re-released this album and Stevens' previous album Everything Is Beautiful together on one CD.
