Genius Loves Company songs Product Information
Genius Loves Company album for sale by Ray Charles was released Aug 31, 2004 on the Concord label. Charles is joined by Elton John on a soulful exploration of the latter's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word," and sidles up next to Willie Nelson for a haunting version of the Frank Sinatra hit "It Was a Very Good Year," made all the more poignant in retrospect by its posthumous nature. Of course, it's not all bittersweet melancholy; Charles teams with Van Morrison for a jubilant soul/gospel reading of Van's MOONDANCE tune "Crazy Love," and the duet with James Taylor on the upbeat "Sweet Potato Pie" is probably the sassiest, perkiest thing in which Taylor's ever been involved. Genius Loves Company CD music contains a single disc with 12 songs. ...See Full Description

Genius Loves Company album for sale I thought there would me more of Ray Charles on this. It is mostly guest performers. I did not understand what this album was trying to accomplish--a tribute to him, certainly these are not his songs.

||Good but not the best|
Genius Loves Company buy CD music This album is good in a couple of ways. The people singing with Ray Charles are at the top of their game for the most part but Ray, whom I love, is obviously not at his peak.
