Overview

After giving an eventful concert in Antibes/Juan-les-Pins in July '61, Ray Charles went back to France in October, but this time to Paris for a series of memorable performances. This set was prepared by Joël Dufour, one of the world's specialists in matters concerning Brother Ray, and it's historic value makes it essential listening... because it contains the only live performances where Ray Charles swapped his piano for a Hammond organ. With 25 previously unreleased titles and bonuses, this special release provides a brand-new perspective of the man nicknamed the Genius, a generous, virtuoso musician who enjoyed an imperial reign.
