Ray Charles The Best of Ray Charles: The Atlantic Years Colored Vinyl 2LP

By 1952, Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records, bought Ray Charles' recording contract from Swing Time for $3000. This unprecedented bargain solidified the beginning of a longstanding relationship between Charles and the label. While on Atlantic, Charles experienced much commercial success. In 1955, he achieved his first No. 1 single "I Got a Woman" followed by other chart topping releases such as "This Little Girl of Mine," "The Night Time (Is the Right Time)" and "What'd I Say."

Reissued here on colored vinyl 2LP, the 1994 compilation The Best of Ray Charles: The Atlantic Years gathers the R&B superstar's finest from his tenure on the label, songs that helped define soul music as both a new musical genre and an instrument for social change in American culture.
