GEORGIA ON MY MIND * RAY CHARLES * ABC PARAMOUNT 90.871 * F

Georgia On My Mind is a rich and Soulful, mellow ballad recorded at a time when Ray Charles recently moved from the independent Atlantic label to ABC Paramount where his work was geared to a more general middle of the road record buying public.

 Released on this French EP which gathers together four tracks that name check different geographical locations in the USA, the fact that Ray Charles was born in Albany, Georgia which gives Georgia On My Mind added poignancy.
