Fakta This outstanding LP contains all of Ray Charles' top-10 Billboard hits between 1953 and 1959, a seminal period in the legendary career of one of the most influential musicians of the 20th Century.
Born Ray Charles Robinson on September 23, 1930, in Albany, Georgia (he died on June 10, 2004 in Beverly Hills, California), Ray Charles has been described by many writers as the "father of Soul Music". His early years were full of tragedies. He was born into extreme poverty and slowly blinded by glaucoma until, at the age of six, he lost his sight completely. Before going blind, he had to cope with the death of his brother, who he watched drown in a water tub. Ray studied composition and learned several instruments at the St. Augustine School for the Deaf and the Blind. His mother Aretha died when Ray was 15, and he was brought up by Mary Jane (the first wife of Ray's absent father). Ray worked as a musician in Florida for a while before using his savings to move to Seattle in 1947. There he continued his career, playing piano at several nightclubs.
Ray made his first recordings in 1947 and over the following years his career was in a continuous state of evolution. A crossover of many different sources, mostly blues, jazz, gospel and soul, Ray Charles developed a unique style, and his personal touch became evident in all the different projects he undertook. Charles possessed one of the most recognizable voices in American music.
Late in 1954, Charles recorded his own composition "I Got a Woman". It became one of his most notable hits, reaching number one on the R&B chart. "I Got a Woman" included a mixture of gospel, jazz and blues elements that would later prove to be seminal in the development of rock and roll and soul music. In 1955, he had a hit with "A Fool for You". In upcoming years, he scored with "I'll Drown in My Own Tears" and "Hallelujah, I Love Her So". By 1959, Charles reached the Billboard Top Ten with "What'd I Say", which made him a major figure in R&B.
