Nice DVD, but not a must have Dec 27 2004
By C. Lane - Published on Amazon.com

After reading the reviews and looking at the song list, I had high hopes for this disc. The picture quality was good and Ray's energy as he bounced onto the staged was also promising. However, from the very first song, the recording is a disappointment. In the first song, the audio mix is so far off that you can't even hear his piano. This is eventually corrected, but throughout the performance we all felt that it was a bit hollow - lots of surface flash, but none of the true depth of soul for which Ray Charles is legendary.

Brother Ray in Fine Form Jan. 3 2010
By Norah Fan - Published on Amazon.com
This is a 1981 concert for ITV with the Edmonton Symphony, so there's strings on Georgia on My Mind and America the Beautiful. At 48 minutes it's brief, but it's Ray in his prime. Highly recommended, especially if you find it discounted.

Ray Charles at his best Feb. 23 2013

Always good to see Ray Charles perform to a live audience. As this was crudely recorded at the time, its quality is not up to contemporary standards, but good for historical feel that captured the performance on the occasion.

Can't Go Wrong With Ray Nov. 14 2012
By Hoosier Hayseed - Published on Amazon.com
Ray Charles is one of those entertainers that you simply can't get enough of.
He was so supremely talented, and so innovative, and yet seemed to speak to the inner psyche of almost everybody, that no matter how many times you see or hear him, it's never too much.
The only criticism I have of him is that he got almost too far out, in the way of ultra-hipness, instead of just singing the songs in the basic, fantastic way he first recorded them - such as "What'd I say," or "Georgia."
I'm sure that singers get tired of singing their material the same old way, over and over, but after all, that's what the people want to hear - not some far-out version that bears little resemblance to what is familiar to them.
But this is great - and the Raelettes are great, too.
The whole thing is wonderful.

Live with Ray, just like being there! April 17 2008
By Opinon 8 Ted - Published on Amazon.com
Ray Charles "Live with the Edmonton Symphony" is a terrific hour of music with the inimitable Ray. The orchestra sounds fantastic (who is that lead trumpet player??. Holy smokes!) and Ray performs like he was having a ball. It is fun to watch him and his back up ensemble perform, and great music was made that night. I have lent this out to many people and all have enjoyed this concert. Most have picked up a copy. I finally got my copy back, and I will enjoy watching this again. Hard to find used, but if you can locate one snap it up quickly for your library. You too will become a fan of Ray Charles.
