Along the way he invented soul, became an American icon, and remained a compelling recording and performing artist right up to his death in 2004. This three-disc set combines six of Charles' early and influential LPs for Atlantic Records, including 1957's Ray Charles later retitled and re-released as Hallelujah I Love Her So in 1962, 1958's Ray Charles at Newport, 1959's What'd I Say and The Genius of Ray Charles, and 1960's Ray Charles in Person and The Genius Hits the Road.
