A quibble is of course that the last 13 songs on disk 3 are in true stereo including "The Right Time", "What'd I Say", etc. The stereo songs were mixed from the Atlantic 8-tracks by Tom Dowd in They are neat but the mono mixes from back in the day are also valid, a few are essential. At any rate, there are many, many good songs on this box and if you don't have it, grab it while it's still out there. I think it's 50 or something.. Charles' Blues" Charles - 2: Steve Hoffman , Dec 14, I got this box quite a long time ago based on a previous recommendation.
Don't know if it is still in print, but it is probably not very expensive on the used market. Looks to be OOP, but they have this at Amazon: I picked this up shortly after it came out. A wonderful sounding set, for sure. Thanks for the recommendation. This is one of the great "standard format" box sets from the early years of the format.
I miss those days when all the box sets were shaped like really thick "longboxes," or double-wide so they were the same shape as LP box sets. Of course they weren't perfect; may of the booklets were bound in impractical ways, so that they would split apart when the glue got brittle or you tried to open it too much Seems like back then, the focus was on creating an extensive booklet with real value-added contents like essays, photographs, and other ephemera.
Old Atlantic 3 CD Box set: Ray Charles "The Birth Of Soul", you should grab this one
But enough about the physical packaging; I'm just going on a nostalgia trip as a collector The music contained on the three discs in this Ray Charles box set is, of course, outstanding. And I agree that the mastering is very pleasing to listen to. Shouldn't be too hard to find used, for a reasonable price, I would think?

The sound on the early cuts is sketchy, as would be expected with early-to-mid 50s recordings, but this set is absolutely the best of Ray Charles' music. The later records were great, but he never displayed the same grit when he was at ABC. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.
The title is no empty boast, this set covers the birth of soul. Ray Charles and his band deliver one blues tinged with gospel hit after another on this fantastic collection. These are years of innovation and discovery for Ray, and consequently a couple of the songs on the set are a little odd like his jazzy "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean.
Even so there are so many masterpieces on this that it's a must own collection. One person found this helpful. MP3 Music Verified Purchase.

When listening to music of today or pretty much anything since Rock 'n Roll came about, everything is based on blues and soul music. When learning to play it, you will realize where it all comes from. I new it would be good being Ray Who couldn't love this? Soul music is a blend of the holy and the filthy: And Ray Charles was the first person to perfect that mix.
Just a fantastic collection of his finest work-top notch! Every time I play these discs, I find myself wondering how someone could be so brilliant so consistently. Lots of material, almost all of it stunningly good. Lots of fun, too. You absolutely can't go wrong with this set. See all 35 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
