ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #5156 Ray Charles Tribute Pt. 1
We goofed a bit on the output of this series, Pt. 2
can be heard in show #5144 in our archives page.
Ray Charles, Pt. 1: 1948-1952
This week, the Juke In The Back begins a four part feature
on the early musical career of the great, Ray Charles,
this will cover 1948-58. Born in poverty during The Great Depression,
the young Ray Charles Robinson overcame the tragedy
of losing his younger brother at age 5, going completely
blind at age 7 and losing his mother at age 15.
These experiences forced Ray to step up his musical game,
cut out on his own and make something of himself.
He moved to Seattle in 1947 and began recording with
Jack Lauderdale's LA-based Down Beat Records in 1949.
His first single hit #2 on the national R&B charts. By 1951,
he was back on the charts with 2 more hit singles for Swing
Time Records. This week, Matt The Cat takes a look at
Ray's early career BEFORE he hooked up with Ahmet Ertegun
and Atlantic Records in 1952. Next week, we'll look at
Ray's early Atlantic recordings and eventually,
we'll take Ray Charles' story up to 1958. Some great early
sides by Brotha Ray are jumpin out of this week's Juke In The Back.
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons â€" Mercury 1947
2. Confession Blues - The Maxin Trio â€" Down Beat 1949
3. I Love You, I Love You (I Will Not Let You Go) - The Maxin Trio â€" Down Beat 1949

10. All To Myself - Ray Charles Trio â€" Swing Time 1950
11. Baby Let Me Hold Your Hand - Ray Charles Trio â€" Swing Time 1951
12. Kissa Me Baby - Ray Charles & Orch â€" Swing Time 1952
13. *GREAT 78* Lonely Boy - Ray Charles Trio â€" Swing Time 1951
14. Baby Let Me Hear You Call My Name - Ray Charles â€" Jax 1952
