Ray Charles: What'd I Say 1959  Atlantic
One night on tour in 1959, Ray Charles had run out of material,
and needed to fill time before getting offstage. According to Charles,
the song he improvised on the spot is really "about nothing" — the lyrics
"don't make sense," he says, and it's not much more than a simple call-and-response exercise.
But from the audience's response that night, Ray Charles knew he had a hit —
so he recorded it a few weeks later. "What'd I Say" went on to become one of his all-time
best-selling songs, a number he would continue to play as an encore throughout the rest of his life.
One of the few Atlantic LPs to focus on R&B, and Charles wrote almost everything including
the powerhouse title track - one of Ray's biggest hits, and his first to crack the pop charts.
The instrumental "Rockhouse" is nearly as good, and "Tell The World About You" is gorgeous even
if it's a lineal descendant of his earlier "Hallelujah I Love Her So."
However, his reliance on simple arrangements and familiar riffs and chord progresssions
really hurts him on the lesser material: "Jumpin' In The Morning" and "Tell Me How Do You Feel"
are obvious, derivative blues numbers, "You Be My Baby" is forgettable early 50s rock and roll,
and "What Kind Of Man Are You" (sung by one of the Raelets) is a torch song that never really takes off.
And with such basic material, the band rarely gets to show off its strengths.
The high points are indeed high, but since so many Charles albums are solid all the way through,
I can't recommend this hit-or-miss collection very strongly. (DBW)
