In 1959-1962, Ray Charles’s career was in the heavens, and this definitive set prepared by Joël Dufour draws on the most intense period of Ray’s recordings. The ability of “The Genius” to produce new things artistically could no longer be judged by the same standards, with Ray showing rare eclecticism. Expressing his talents without reserve, he delivered his greatest hits, from “Georgia on My Mind” to “Hit The Road Jack” and “Unchain My Heart”… The titles here are precious evidence of the period when a very gifted rhythm & blues artist transformed into the eternal idol of pop.

    This looks like it would be great. Is there a chance of getting a Turbobit link? The Rapidgator link only works on smaller files.

    Thanks for the post.
