Ray Charles In The Atlantic Records Story (1973, 1993)

The Atlantic Records Story profiled the record label and their founder, Ahmet Ertegun, with clips of La Vern Baker, Sonny Bono, Solomon Burke, Ray Charles, Cher, Aretha Franklin, Booker T. Jones, Ben E. King, Wilson Picket, a.o. Directed by Uri Fruchtmann. Produced in 1993, aired on 12 May 1994.
The program interweaves recollections by its founders Armet Ertigun, Herb Abramsen, Miriam Abramsen, and Jerry Wexler with scenes from the Atlantic's artists' performances from their earlier years, and their comments.

Partially, this documentary goes back to a charming promotional film (actually a low-budget in-house production) from 1973: 25 Years - A History of Atlantic Records with lots of footage shot at Atlantic's New York offices:
