Ray Charles and The Raelets In Concert

Dave Godin, Blues & Soul, 6 November 1970

THE ANNUAL concert featuring Ray Charles, his Orchestra and The Raelets is an event which usually draws S.R.O. crowds and this year was no exception. The man who has frequently been tabbed "The Genius" and who undoubtedly was responsible, in the mid-Fifties, for the acceptance of rhythm and blues in the general pop music spectrum, appeals to all generations as his loyal audience proves.
