Live in Concert
Originally released by ABC-Paramount in early 1965, Live in Concert captured Ray at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles in September 1964. "There could be no more uplifting live musical experience than digging Ray Charles and his mighty orchestra in their prime," says roots music historian Bill Dahl. Indeed, the 15-piece orchestra backing Ray on this date - assembled just a few years earlier in 1961 - boasted no less than a dozen horns, including formidable saxophonists David "Fathead" Newman, Hank Crawford and Leroy "Hog" Cooper, all of whom had been with Ray since his days as a leader of smaller combos. 200 gram vinyl. Tracks: Opening Band: Swing a Little Taste I Gotta Woman Margie You Don't Know Me Hide Nor Hair Baby, Don't You Cry Makin' Whoopee Hallelujah I Love Her So Don't Set Me Free What'd I Say Finale.
