“Compared to What” is a composition, with lyrics, by Gene McDaniels. It was recorded by Roberta Flack in 1969, but became better known following a performance by Les McCann (piano and vocals) and Eddie Harris (tenor saxophone) at the 1969 Montreux Jazz Festival, which appeared as the opening track on their album Swiss Movement. The album was certified Gold in sales in the United States. The song has been covered by more than 270 artists, including Ray Charles. (from Wikipedia).
