True Genius: Sides of Ray — the ultimate Ray Charles vinyl collection!

Tangerine Records presents True Genius: Sides of Ray, a double disc vinyl set. This newly remastered set includes nearly all of Ray Charles' biggest hits including, "Hit The Road Jack," "Unchain My Heart," "I've Got A Woman," "Let's Go Get Stoned," "I Can't Stop Loving You," "Crying Time," "Georgia on My Mind," and more, making it the ultimate Ray Charles vinyl collection. The set will be pressed on high quality 140-gram virgin vinyl in a deluxe gatefold jacket.

Charles' unique mastery of music allowed him to continue to explore all forms of music, freely floating between jazz, blues, pop, rock, soul and country while continuing to combine them in new, unprecedented ways. In this collection, each album side represents a different side of Ray, while showcasing his most important works within the genres he loved best: Soul, jazz & blues, country and classic pop.

True Genius: Sides of Ray follows the September 2021 release of True Genius, a newly remastered, limited edition 6 CD set featuring 90 of the greatest songs from his legendary career and all of Charles' biggest hits. True Genius also marks the first time this incredible collection of Ray Charles' most important works is widely available on streaming platforms.

Ray Charles's recordings are major landmarks in American culture. His early blending of gospel and R&B literally defined soul music. And by blending country music with other popular sounds, this visionary artist brought his expansive musical vision of country music to a worldwide audience for the first time. The incredible crossover success of Charles' Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music, Volumes 1 & 2 led Willie Nelson to remark, "Ray Charles did more for country music than any other artist." Ray continued to do something no other artist had done before or since, by conquering all genres of music, from gospel and R&B to soul, country, jazz, blues, and pop, which led Frank Sinatra to dub Ray Charles, the only "True Genius" in music.

Charles' staggering achievements over a 58-year career include 17 Grammy Awards, induction into both the Rock and Roll and Country Hall of Fame, a Lifetime Achievement and the President's Merit Award, the Presidential Medal for the Arts, France's Legion of Honor, the Kennedy Center Honors, the NAACP Image Awards' "Hall of Fame Award," and numerous other music Halls of Fame, including those for Jazz and Rhythm & Blues, all testament to his enormous influence.
