The Birth of Soul: The Complete Atlantic R&B

Ray Charles (1991)

Soul music, you may have heard, is a blend of the holy and the dirty: gospel and blues rubbing up against each other. What you may not have heard is that Charles was just about the first person to perfect that mix. Charles was knocking around Seattle when Atlantic bought out his contract in 1952. For the next eight years, he turned out brilliant singles such as "What'd I Say" and "I Got a Woman." He was inventing the sound of ecstasy, three minutes at a time. Charles told Rolling Stone in 1973, "Anything I do, good or bad, it's very, very natural."

Total album sales: 60 thousand

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
