With The Genius of Ray Charles (1959), the maestro produced a cinematic expansion of his rollicking, heart-rending rhythm and blues. On Side One, big-band arrangements transform "Deed I Do" and "Let the Good Times Roll" from beat-up pickup trucks into shiny, new Cadillacs. On Side Two, a string orchestra elevates ballads such as "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying" and "Am I Blue" into luxurious expressions of loss and loneliness. Through it all, Ray's voice channels the rough-hewn emotion that was often lacking in a era of candy-laced crooners.

The rhino vinyl reissues are terrible if you look at any album which has got reissued by rhino the sound quality has been either good or bad it's just your luck of what pressing you get...

I just picked up a copy of this album with the all black Atlantic labels. I don't see a listing here for this album with that label variation. Anyone know when that pressing might have been released?

If this release dates from 1968 how come the Atlantic address is listed as "New York 23, New York"? ZIP codes were instituted in 1963.

My copy seems to be somewhat louder and slightly distorted. Am I imagining it?

It's hard to hear now just what made this record so revolutionary and new when it first came out. One English critic, who liked Charles' piano playing, said, "the mixture of gospel-style vocal phrasing with banal blues lyrics is most unsatisfactory, if not positively objectionable." Oh well, so much for soul music!
