Ray Charles In Troyes, Paris & Toulouse (Autumn 1984)

End of October (20th, 22nd, 23d, 26th) and early November 1984 France 3 and France 2 broadcast several news items on Ray Charles' concerts in Troyes, Paris and Toulouse, and possibly a few other places. The item on the France 3 news of 20 October (Ina,ID RCC00008163) showed "Ray Charles performing Let The Good Times Roll before his concert" (from the 1979 Antibes concert).

The  regional Champagne Ardennes outlet of the French public broadcaster TF2 or TF3 interviewed The Genius, who willingly debited his "Good music will always be good"-rant.

On October 21, 1984 the Ray Charles group gave a concert in Troyes.
The Q&A was cross-cut with brief concert sequences of Georgia, What'd I Say and Some Enchanted Evening - I assume all from the concert in Troyes.

Ina databased the other news items under ID numbers  SXC04004211, SXC04004214 (mother tape SXC04004200); SXC04004219 (mother tape SXC04004216); CAC88026469; RBC02037881 (mother tape RBC02012548); CAB01032914; LXC01051456 (mother tape LXC01051442).

This interview was broadcast by France-3 on October 22:
