The Genius Sings The Blues

The Genius Sings The Blues by Ray Charles
Released: Oct 1961
Label: Rhino Atlantic
This 1961 set collects Ray Charles blues vocals -- even though it's fair to ask exactly when Ray wasn't singing the blues. Groundbreaking hits like "I Believe To My Soul," and "Early In The Morning" sit side-by-side with tracks that showcase his stylistic development with a combination of sophisticated West Coast piano blues, gritty southern R&B, and backwoods sermonizing.
