Ray CharlesSpirit Of Christmas ... CD
Rhino, 1985. Used ... $7.99
A great holiday album from Ray Charles – recorded in the 80s, but with a sound that's pretty classic all the way through! Ray's vocals are excellent – with that raspy intimate quality that persists all through his later years – and the sweetly jazzy arrangements work perfectly with the voice to bring new life to old classics like "What Child Is This", "Little Drummer Boy", "Winter Wonderland", and "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town". There's also a few nice obscurer numbers – like the country soul "That Spirit Of Christmas", plus "All I Want For Christmas" and "Christmas In My Heart", which both feature Ray on electric piano. CD also features a bonus cut – Ray & Betty Carter's classic reading of "Baby It's Cold Outside", from 1962. CD
(Out of print 50th Anniversary Collection pressing.)
