Yes Indeed!! | Ray Charles Album Review

ArtistRay Charles

Year1958

Genre: Rhythm & Blues

Grade: B+

Ray Charles’ greatness stemmed from his ability to seamlessly combine jazz, swing and the blues. He does so through his soulful, honest singing. No matter how good or bad the song, Charles is always worth listening to. Yes Indeed!!, an LP from his Atlantic era, is no different.

Side-note: the organ fanfare that opens the title track is sampled in Outkast’s “Spread.”
