The Raelettes, Singles And Albums


The group was promoted with their name spelled in different ways: The Raelettes, The Raeletts, The Raelets. Misspellings like "Raylettes" also frequently occur. On this blog, I have consistently chosen to go for the Raelettes spelling. For documented Raelettes line-ups through the years, see below and the Band Page.
In the listings below I have 'normalized' the spelling of a few titles.

The Raelettes also toured with the Ike & Tina Turner Revue in 1970 and 1971. Tangerine released an odd album featuring both acts, both doing their own things: Souled Out, in 1971 (TRCS-1511). Ray played keyboards on all the Raelettes' tunes.

1972 - Album: (Ray Charles Presents The) Raelett[e]s, Yesterday... Today... Tomorrow
The individual Raelettes recording this album ( Tangerine TRCS 1515, 1972) weren't even named in the liner notes (which do claim that "The name of the Raeletts is an exclusive property of Ray Charles Enterprises, Inc."), but I'm quite sure that it's the quintet consisting of Vernita Moss, Susaye Green, Mable John, Dorothy Berry and Estella Yarbrough.
The songs were arranged by Ray Charles, Ray Jackson, Roger Newmann and Sid Feller. The engineering was done by Ray and David Braithwaite.
Ray Charles is present on every track, on keyboards, and sometimes singing or humming.
In an interview from July 2004 Mable John remembered: "At the end of 1970, we went to Mexico City and we were booked by ourselves. It was supposed to be for two weeks but they kept us for eleven. We packed the room every night and Ray flew down to see us. He caught our show, he wanted to see how we were doing. The following year, he booked us in Japan during our off season and he had every girl in the group learn at least two songs they could lead;. When we came back, he said, 'I want to do an album on you', and that's when we did the one Raelet[te]s' album, Yesterday, Today and Forever [sic!]. We all sang and Ray always pushed everyone on. If you hit a wrong note, he would play it on stage so you got it right. I loved talking back to him on stage on songs because that helped make the show spicy. And Ray was great with me: he never contradicted anything I said to the group and his attitude was, 'I gave you the position of leader, I won’t go behind you' and he lived by that standard, even after I left the group..."

From Jazz Hot, Dec. 1961. Marcus Belgrave stepping forward for a trumpet solo.
A file that I received from J.P. Verger, though, was made even more enjoyable by inclusion of a ZIP with a series of scans from unique photos of the 1961 big band, taken from contemporary magazine articles in Jazz Magazine and Jazz Hot, covering the October concerts. Photos of individual members of Ray's band are extremely rare, but these series even include a number of excellent close-ups (see top of this article; click to enlarge). The photographer of most or all of these pics was J.P. Leloir.

Here come the most interesting remaining pics:

Photos by James J. Kringmann of The Raelettes, from a UK souvenir brochure. Margie missed a concert at the London Hammersmith Odeon, in May. Quotes from New Musical Express: "Raelets leader Margie Hendrix missed Charles' concert at Hammersmith on Tuesday through illness but was able to rejoin the show the following night". "That wasn't the real Ray Charles," said Ray Charles. "With Maggie ill, no one could sing her part. So I had to leave out a lot of the wilder things..."

Concert in New Orleans, at Louisiana’s Loyola University auditorium in 1963, the first show in New Orleans to allow racially mixed seating. "No incidents reported, everyone had a lovely time, and [...] paid to see Ray instead of staying away in protest of integration. Another triumph for music."

2005



A Ray Charles Orchestra without Ray Charles was tried out by Joe Adams in 2005. On August 4th he gathered a group of musicians, a few 'Raelettes', and Billy Osborne as the singer, in the Blue Note, in New York. The Raelettes in the photos are Andromeda Turre (who was hired in 2003, when concerts started to be canceled and therefore never performed live with Ray), Joy Styles and Shalaine Adams. Nobody booked the group.

  1. Hi!

    Thank you for you work!

    I couldn't help but posting some information here on the TRC-1511 LP "Souled Out":

    The LP was released in 1968. The 8 songs of the Raelets were recorded in Jan. and Dec. 1967, the remaining 4 Ike&Tina songs already in March 1966. I have this information from a handwritten notice which gives all the details as to the the studio times and the master tapes used for the record. It also lists the personnel. The note was included in the LP "Souled Out" I bought some time ago.

    all the best
    keep up the work

  2. Hi again!

    Sorry, I must correct my statement: TRC-LP 1511 is indeed from 1971, but the recordings are from 1966 and 1967. The note, however, gives the date "1968" for the LP, but this seems wrong, given the fact that the contigous nos. of TRC-LPs point to the early 70s.

  3. Hi,
    Thank you very much for sharing this! I hardly dare ask for more, but it would be very valuable (at least for me and other fans;-) if you could share the other details on that note (spec. personnel and any specific dates).
    Do you have any idea on the origin/author of that note?
    Best regards, BOB
