An inherited copy, on wax, of Ray Charles’ Live In Concert has been in my regular rotation for years. Last month I read (via the LA Times) that the classic set was finally seeing a CD release. The following bit further grabbed my attention: “The original 12-song LP, which peaked at No. 80 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart in 1965, will be fleshed out with seven bonus tracks, including his rendition that night of “Georgia on My Mind,” which was left off the album.” Also, for those of you wondering, there is no planned vinyl reissue at this time according the folks at Concord Music.
We have several copies of the set to giveaway to AD readers. If interested, leave your name, a valid contact in the email field, and your favorite Ray Charles recording, live or otherwise, below in the comments. Winners chosen and notified by next Friday.
