Biography

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 ... Read more in Amazon's Ray Charles Store

Editorial Reviews

Two CD 'Deluxe Edition' in a cardboard gatefold sleeve that collects Ray's best-known '50s and '60s singles, such as 'What'd I Say', 'I've Got A Woman', 'Georgia On My Mind' and 'Hit The Road Jack'. The man's originality and infectious feeling bleed through on each of these 40 tracks. Ray Charles was a genius in interpretation of many genres, from Gospel to Country to Blues to R&B to old-fashioned Big Band singing. He is an artist of the highest order and this collection is outstanding in terms of his line of work. Greatest Hits. 2007.

Customer Reviews

A very nice compilation of Ray's music.

He didn't have any Ray Charles, so he thought this one had the best of his favorites on it.

I got this as a gift for my Dad on Christmas and he really loved it.

I have been a fan of Ray's for quite sometime, well before his passing. This collection of 40 songs will give any new fan of his music a great start to their collection as well as long time fans a great variety of songs in one complete digital format package. The quality of all the tracks is excellent and the quality of the discs are good too. You can't beat the price at $13.00. This CD set appears to be available off and on so get it while you can, you won't be disappointed.

This 16-track budget package hits all the high notes of Brother Ray's rise to greatness. Starting in the '50s with classic Atlantic sides like "I've Got a Woman," "Hallelujah I Love Her So," "Night Time (Is the Right Time)," and "What'd I Say," the set also includes his landmark ABC country sides of the '60s ("I Can't Stop Loving You," "Georgia on My Mind"), finishing up with a duet with Willie Nelson on "Seven Spanish Angels." A perfect introduction to an American musical treasure.

Two favorites of mine here: "Hit the Road Jack," & "Georgia on My mind" for which he was decorated by the president of the United States. If you want to hear your favorite hits "back in the day," this is the CD to get.

I can't see anybody over 30 not being able to kick back to this collection. The other to get is the Ray sings Country collection. He really was a genius, even if his life story is that of a mortal.

I got this as a gift for my Dad on Christmas and he really loved it. Personally I cannot name one of his songs but if you know someone who likes Ray Charles apparently this is an excellent CD to have his hits all on one disk.

this CD only has the voice of Ray and none of the back up singers or arrangements that helped make his music great. I was very disappointed and returned this item.

Hubby wanted a Ray Charles CD for Christmas. As he had none in his collection, this was a great overall and diverse collection of music. He enjoys the recordings.
