Ray Charles - Anthology - CD Brand NewAmazon.com Even for a relatively brief (20-song) overview of Ray Charles's '60s output during the peak of his recording stardom at ABC-Paramount, Anthology covers a hell of a lot of styles. It couldn't be any other way, not when examining the period in which he hit the charts with transformed versions of half-forgotten standards ("Georgia on My Mind"), hip jazz instrumental takes on Clovers tunes ("One Mint Julep"), rocking uptempo R&B ("Hit the Road Jack") and mournful proto-countrypolitan ("I Can't Stop Loving You"). If any of those four titles means a thing to you, this primer on America's greatest singer is probably a disc you should own. --Rickey Wright Product description Album Features UPC: 081227575922 Artist: Ray Charles Format: CD Release Year: 1990 Record Label: Rhino (Label) Genre: Blues, Piano Track Listing 1.

The Beautiful America Playing Time: 66 min. Recording Type: Studio Recording Mode: Stereo Album Notes Includes liner notes by Todd Everett.This is not a career retrospective per se, since it doesn't include any of Ray Charles' groundbreaking '50s R&B from his tenure at Atlantic Records. It is, however, an excellent greatest hits collection covering his years at ABC-Paramount. As always, what's most impressive is the sheer stylistic breadth of Charles' music making.Here you have, among other goodies, a Latin-tinged blues rocker ("Unchain My Heart"), a reinvented Tin Pan Alley standard ("Georgia on My Mind"), and an unabashed country weeper ("I Can't Stop Lovin' You"). There's an early R&B tune written by the Motown team of Ashford and Simpson ("I Don't Need No Doctor"), a soulful cover of the Beatles at their most classically-tinged ("Eleanor Rigby"), and finally an all-out gospel assault on "America the Beautiful." Amazingly, it all fits together in a seamless whole
