Among Ray Charles fans Do It To Me Slow is best known for its triumphant theme, which for many years was played as the introduction ‘jingle’ for the walk-on of “All 5”, a.k.a. The Raelettes. The tune was arranged by Ray Charles and James Polk.
Pat Peterson gave a very vivid performance of the full version of the song during Ray’s second concert at the North Sea Jazz Festival in The Hague, on July 13th, 1980.
