Ray Charles Ray Charles on 180g LP
Friday Music / Ray Charles 180 Gram Vinyl Series
Remastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Mastering with Ron McMaster
Perhaps the greatest crossover artist that ever was, it is impossible to overstate the impact that Ray Charles had on the evolution of both R&B and rock & roll. Charles' distinctive style transcended genres and influenced musicians from every musical background and from every corner of the globe, but it was during the mid-'50s that Charles really began to rule the R&B charts.
His legendary self-titled debut LP, originally released in 1957 on Atlantic (and later renamed Hallelujah! I Love Her So), was essentially a collection of those hit singles. In 1955 Ray had his first #1 hit, "I've Got A Woman," followed by his second and third No. 1 hits, "A Fool For You," and "Drown In My Own Tears," over just the next few months.
Almost all of the remaining tracks on the album were also Top Ten hits from that same period, including "Greenbacks," "Hallelujah I Love Her So" and "This Little Girl Of Mine." This was undoubtedly the era that defined the legend! Remastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Mastering with Ron McMaster and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
