Biography

“I’ve recorded with so many amazing artists in my career but never on a duets album of my own. I thought it was timeto have some of the friends that I love and the artists that I admire come into my studio and sing with me live, the way we did it in the old days,” explains Ray Charles on the genesis of Genius Loves Company. “All the guests brought their own magic to ...

Soul and r&b legend Ray Charles may not have lived to see the success of Hollywood's ultimate tribute to him, but director Taylor Hackford's biopic (featuring a landmark performance by Jamie Foxx as the musical legend) will further burnish his legacy as one of the cornerstones of contemporary American music. Though it stretches from 1953's ecstatic, proto-soul "Mess Around" to a sublime, bluesy live take of "Georgia On My Mind" recorded in Japan in the mid-70's, this 17-track song-score can only be an inviting appetizer to the singer's epochal body of work. Charles' artistry may have virtually defined soul music itself, yet it also triumphed in genres as far afield as blues blues ("Nightime is the Right Time") and country ("I Can't Stop Loving You," "Bye Bye Love") during the 60's, the impossibly rich era from which the bulk of this soundtrack is culled. Crucially, fully a third of the cuts here are live recordings -- including electrifying 1965 performances of "What'd I Say," "You Don't Know Me" and "Hallelujah I Love Her So" hand-picked for the film by Charles himself -- the forum in which the singer consistently operated on a whole other artistic plateau from mere mortals. -- Jerry McCulley

While enduring the long flight home from Australia in March, my life was made a little easier for an hour or so by watching the movie 'Ray'. I've been a jazz/blues fan all my life (I'm 62 by the way) and well remember the impact on me of first hearing the record of "What'd I say" as a teenager. So, when this number was featured in the movie, I really sat up and took note. The version used was, presumably, specially recorded for the soundtrack and was a real pot-boiler. When the credits were rolling at the end of the movie, I noted that the numbers used on the soundtrack were available on CD.
I bought the CD soon after arriving home and was very disappointed. I feel the producers of this album could be prosecuted for misrepresentation. The tracks on this album do NOT correspond to the numbers used on the soundtrack in all cases. In particular, the album uses a very mediocre live recording of "What'd I say".
The album is a very good compilation of some of Ray Charles's recording over the years both studio and live but, I have to repeat, it is not the soundtrack. Some of the numbers seem to have been recorded in Ray's twilight years when his voice was begining to sound a bit frail. That is not a problem, he had a long and distinguished recording career. My grouse is that I thought I was buying what I had heard whilst watching the movie, and I hadn't.
