Ray Charles was at his best when he stuck to that potent mixture of gospel and blues and this album contains some of the best examples of it that he recorded. The album was recorded live at Newport and his performance is absolutely electric with a superb raw feel to it.

There are outstanding versions of Night time is the right time (with backing from the wonderful Raelettes), I got a woman and Fool for you. Many of the rest of the tracks are jazz instrumentals with a strong R&B feel. Charles is backed by a small group that features his regular sidemen: Hank Crawford, David 'Fathead' Newman and Marcus Belgrave. All of them blow up a storm and the feeling is quite contagious.

Please note this album is included in the album Ray Charles Live with another performance but for me the Newport performance is better on it's own.
