You’re In For A Big Surprise

Album 1966 Crying

Album: Crying Time, ABC/Paramount/Tangerine 544, January 1966.

Recorded in June 1965 at the United Studios in Hollywood.

With the Ray Charles Orchestra and The Raelettes. The album doesn’t credit any of the musicians or backing vocalists. Billy Preston’s distinct organ playing is the major factor in the great sound of the bluest tracks on the album. Rene Hall played guitar and Earl Palmer was on drums.

According to contemporary concert souvenir booklets, this number was part of the live repertoire, but no recordings have surfaced.
