Overview

More Music from Ray

Spurred on by the runaway success of both the film Ray! and the accompanying soundtrack CD comes this second collection of Ray Charles music featured in the biopic. Classics from both the Atlantic Records and ABC eras are here, including “Lonely Avenue,” “I Believe to My Soul,” “Busted,” and “The Danger Zone,” each a further testament to the genius of “the Genius.” Charles’ staggering versatility with musical genres, from blues to R&B to country, is in glorious evidence here. The tantalizing riches on this satisfying collection can lead a novice Charles listener to the gold mine of his early and mid-period recording career. Three of the 17 tracks were recorded by Charles specifically for the film ("Baby Let Me Hold Your Hand," "Everyday I Have the Blues," and "Drown in My Own Tears/You Don't Know Me"), and the package includes a bonus DVD with performances from Charles' 1963 Rio concert, recently released as O Genio.
