HomeRhythm and BluesFrom the Vault: Ray Charles Hits the Road Carl October 21, 2014 Rhythm and Blues 3 Comments That’s a lot of genius to pack into two minutes and nineteen seconds. Here’s a later version of the same song. It isn’t clear if it is the same version of the Raelettes. I am not a critic or analyst, but was struck by the idea that the whole song is a conversation between Charles and the Raelettes. That seems to me to be unique. Other videos of note – among the dozens of good ones at YouTube – are What I’d Say, Georgia on My Mind and America, the Beautiful. His website has a lot of material, including a biography and discography. Finally, here is a link to the IMDb listing for the very good 2004 biopic Ray, which starred Jamie Foxx. They had the good sense to have Foxx lip sync the music. Note: TDMB continually re-posts great music from the early days of the site.
