HAPPY EARTH DAY BLOG FRIENDS! I’m spending my afternoon at our local annual Island beach clean up ~ reycling ~ repurposing ~ but for now we take a break this week from my ”Johnny Cash Sunday coffee times*” to explore some other records.
I’m ~rethrifting~ this album for sure. Welcome to another classic Ray Charles Singers bomb of an album. He was evidiently a film buff and had a huge home collection of 16mm films. From that, he produced this album ~ “the movie music that everybody wants to hear”. omg. It’s horrible. By the end of song two I was dreading Side B. It’s a rethrift, soundtrack, orchestra categories and came from the Comox Community Radio reject / closure pile. At the age of 93 years, he continues to serve as a musical consultant to television programs, most notably for the last 29 years on the Kennedy Center Honors. Charles is acknowledged as an authority on American popular music.
What are you doing for Earth Day?
SPOILER ALERT!!! tomorrow’s soundtrack album has a song featured on this album.
