My second and final time to see Ray Charles. The concert took place in Manhattan Beach, on the main tennis court of this exclusive club. I had a decent seat, just right of the stage. There was no opening act. Brother Ray was accompanied by a full-size orchestra conducted by long-time collaborator Sid Feller.
The audience was predominantly white, something that definitely intrigued me. "Georgia On My Mind" is the only song I positively remember from the show. I'm 99% sure he did "America The Beautiful" as well.
