Ray Charles : I Can See Clearly Now
In October of 1977, Ray Charles released one of his finest albums, True To Life, his first since returning to Atlantic Records. Best of all is his version of the 1972 Johnny Nash hit "I Can See Clearly Now".
The critics raved about the album, including Robert Christgau who wrote :
Ray Charles was described as "the only true genius in the music business" by Frank Sinatra. Get a load of that genius from Charles, still making great music at the age of 47. To help promote the album, Charles would be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live in November of 1977.
