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.

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?
