Ray Charles Live In Lloret De Mar (1990)

'90 LC LloretConcert 1990 Lloret

Still from the TV program.

On 20 April 1991 TVE2 broadcast a Ray Charles concert held the year before on 20 July, sponsored by the Casino in Lloret de Mar, at the Campo Municipal de Deportes (cf. this). The program was directed by P.P. Vila-San-Juan.
The copy that I saw had many sequences where the sound was slurring, but Brother Ray and the band were in good shape, and the program nicely captured the atmosphere of a typical mediterranean summer night concert during one of Ray’s yearly Europe tours.

The show was simulcast over radio by RNE 3; a good copy has survived.

Have a reasonable good copy in VHS with stereo recorded from the radio. Converted to mpeg is a delight.
