Happy Birthday Ray Charles

Posted on: Saturday, Sep 23, 2006

Today would have been the 76th birthday of one of the most important people in popular music – the incredible Ray Charles.  I always loved Ray Charles, in fact his song “Hard Times” is possibly one of my desert island disks – it never fails to make my hairs stand on end – three minutes of pure perfection.

I have carried out the obligatory YouTube search and come up with this lovely clip of Ray doing In The Evening.  Ray also did, for me, the definitive version of another great song “Georgia on my Mind“.

RIP Ray.
