This follow-up to the soundtrack of director Taylor Hackford's acclaimed Ray Charles biopic contains key film tracks (like the rehab-cantered "Lets Go Get Stoned") left off the first collection, as well as a number of non-movie songs said to "inspire" the film. But far from mere marketing gambit, those tracks (which date mostly to the late 1950s and early '60s) help make this an even grittier, more blues-cantered sketch of the incomparable icon in his prime. The included bonus DVD contains just two songs, bracing performances of "Don't Set Me Free" and "Carry Me Back to Old Virginny" culled from a 1963 Brazilian TV show chronicled on Rhino's O-Genio video. But the collection's greatest treasures are bluesy, 2003 live-in-the-studio takes of "Baby Let Me Hold Your Hand" and "Drown In My Own Tears/You Don't Know Me" by Charles himself, film dub tracks for which no other appropriate recordings existed. Listening to the Legend time-trip across decades is as serene as it is surreal, especially with "Baby"'s understated guitar solo being delivered by unlikely sideman Slash. The set concludes with Charles' magnificent, mid-70's gospel vamp of "America the Beautiful." --Jerry McCulley

Ray Charles was very much inspired by the blues and it's evident again in the song, "Losing Hand," where Ray laments that he gambled on love and lost. The CD becomes upbeat again with the song "I'm Moving On." It is with the early 60's recording you can hear that Ray's voice has began to change a little. Ray's music can just touch your soul and the song "The Danger Zone," is one of those that will put you in a real mellow mood. Some of the songs have such a long musical lead in, you will think that the entire song is instrumental and then Ray will come in singing, like on the song, "Makin' Whoopee."
More Music From Ray doesn't not include Ray's most popular songs like "Hit The Road Jack," but it does include other Ray Charles classics and his famous rendition of "America The Beautiful." For the other songs from the movie, check out the original soundtrack CD. The More Music From Ray CD booklet includes an introduction by the director of Ray Taylor Hackford. He gives background on why certain songs were re-recorded and shares some of his memories with working with Ray Charles.
There is new music on the CD too. There is a 2003 version of the Ray Charles song "Baby Let Me Hold Your Hand," "Drown In My Own Tears/You Don't Know Me," and "Everyday I Have The Blues" which is a song by Chris Thomas King."
The More Music From Ray CD also comes with a special bonus DVD. The DVD features performances from the Rhino Home Video O-Genio.

The DVD is short, yet it's a throw-in seeing as you pay the price of a normal CD anyway. Also included but not listed is Track #17, a superb rendition of America the Beautiful.
A great artist, lovingly remembered in this excellently produced package.
