Ray Charles At New Orleans Jazz Festival (1999)

On 23 April 1999 Ray Charles headlined the New Orleans Jazz Festival. Other acts were Willie Nelson, Cassandra Wilson, Kirk Franklin, Hugh Masakela, Bobby Blue Bland and the Isley Brothers. Local acts like Fats Domino, the Neville Brothers, Irma Thomas, Pete Fountain, Dr. John, and Allen Toussaint "made the event seem like a family affair".
Reuters produced a 2m50s showbiz news clip (ID 904240039; source here). In the 13th sequence they showed "Singer Ray Charles On Stage". For a photo of Ray's performance, watch this page.

I've found a reference to a bootleg, where the setlist is specified as [with obvious corrections, BS]:
  1. Untitled instrumental (?)*
  2. Riding Thumb
  3. Busted
  4. Georgia On My Mind
  5. Then We'll Be Home (Sadies Tune)
  6. Just For A Thrill**
  7. You Made Me Love You**
  8. Yours**
  9. Stranger In My Own Hometown**
  10. A Song For You***
  11. Chain Of Fools
  12. I Can't Stop Loving You
  13. I Believe To My Soul
  14. What'd I Say
* May have been usual RC intro with walk-on tune. **The source for this bootleg info presented tracks #6 - 9 as a medley (which is impossible). Conjecture in title of #8: Just Yours > Yours. ***The Raelette walk-on would have been after A Song For You.
