Ray Charles Live In Maribor (1996)

'96 LC MariborConcert 1996 Maribor

In July 1996 the Ray Charles band played at the Lent Festival in Maribor, Slovenia. Barbara Morrison opened the show with the Orchestra.
The concert (without Morrison’s part) was recorded for SLO1, the first net of Radiotelevizija Slovenija (presented by Eva Stavbar, directed by Petar Radović). I’ve seen a reasonably good video copy with the following selection:

  1. Intro RC
  2. Busted
  3. Georgia On My Mind
  4. Oh, What A Beautiful Morning
  5. Just For A Thrill
  6. Angelina
  7. Blues For Big Scotia
  8. A Song For You
  9. Intro Raelettes (by RC)
  10. Knock On Wood
  11. I Can’t Stop Loving You
  12. What’d I Say (with intro: I’m Gonna Keep Singin’)
  13. Outro

Ted Murdock, Chuck Parrish, John Bailey, Kenny Scharf – trumpets; Steve Sigmund, Mike Guerrier, Sarah Morrow, Jason Jackson – trombones; Steve Elliott, Al Jackson (bandleader), Al Waters, Rudy Johnson, and Jim Farnsworth – saxophones; Kenny Carr – guitar; Curtis Ohlson – bass; Ernest Vantrease – Hammond organ; Peter Turre – drums. The Raelettes: Estella Yarbrough, Karen Evans, Cathy Mackey, Katrina Harper-Cooke (?), Tonette McKinney.
