Some Sunday Soul
As I do most weekends I visited my mum in her care home last Sunday.
Just outside the cafe area there was a Barnardos pop up charity shop with assorted stuff over two or three tables , boxes, bookcases, etc.
CD section I thought and then a result I came away with The Definitive Ray Charles 46 tracks for 99p
I thought I had it but it was actually another compilation on the shelves so plenty of new songs for me to get my teeth into.
He was a bit of a genre buster was old Ray. The album contains Jazz, Blues , Country , Soul and Easy Listening.
Seeing it's Sunday we are calling it soul although the first song is taken from his 1962 album Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music Volume 2.
The second is his take on the title track from the great film In the Heat of the Night. The way things are going on in America these days if it was aired today people would think in was a documentary.
