Pure Genius: The Complete Atlantic Recordings 1952-1960 by Ray Charles
Released: Sep 2005
Label: Rhino Atlantic
A mothership of box sets, this showcases eight key years in the life of Ray Charles, during an era when he was transforming popular music. This arranges the material by recording not release dates so it mixes up his cutting-edge R&B singles, instrumental jazz numbers (with everyone from Milt Jackson to Quincy Jones) and his yearning vocals on string-laden standards.
