R&B innovator Ray Charles was one of the most important musicians
of the 1950s. Despite being blind from childhood he was hugely
successful at fusing elements of blues country gospel and doo
wop together to form a kind of proto-soul

Despite losing his sight at an early age he never let his
disability stop him from being a success and scored several R&B
chart hits in the early 50s — including It Should Have Been Me
Mess Around I Got a Woman and Lonely Avenue — all recorded
on Atlantic Records. These songs were among the early blueprints
for soul music alongside the work of artists like James Brown and
Sam Cooke. In 1959 Charles enjoyed his biggest hit yet when What
I d Say topped the R&B chart and reached No.6 in the main singles

After leaving Atlantic for a better contract at ABC Records
Charles enjoyed more crossover successes including the pained
ballad Georgia on my Mind the swinging pop chart-topper Hit
the Road Jack and the pleading Unchain My Heart . His 1962
record Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music was a smash
hit topping the album charts for 12 weeks. It is remembered as
one of the greatest albums of the early 60s

In the late 60s and 70s Charles’ fortunes started to wane. He
fought personal demons (including drug addiction) and wasn t able
to keep up with the new and modern fashions of music. Although his
recent material wasn t so successful his earlier songs continued
to be popular and musicians continued to cite Charles as an
influence. Ray Charles died of liver cancer in 2004; he was 73
Shortly afterwards a biopic film was released telling his life
story bringing a new wave of posthumous appreciation

Essentially a sampling of recordings by the great singer Ray
Charles his influences and contemporaries this selection
gathers some of the best-known creations of 20th century jazz
blues and R&B greats such as Duke Ellington Count Basie Tony
Bennett and B.B. King. Though somewhat misleadingly titled (there
are no star-studded duets here) the set is an entertaining
overview of mid-20th century popular jazz and R&B featuring
contributions from Nat King Cole on a freewheeling Route 66
Brook Benton’s luxurious baritone on So Many Ways and Charles’
own much-loved Georgia on My Mind
