Ray Charles On A Touch Of Gold (1976)

Singer Teddy Neeley, at one time of Jesus Christ Superstar fame, has been seeding all over the web that in 1976 he was a "guest with Ray Charles", on A Touch Of Gold, a variety show aired by NBC.
The only things I could find about this format are that this "music show features million-selling songs and interviews", and that in 1974 a show was hosted by Mac Davis. Who knows more?
On 9 February 1977 Charles sued the producers (Sam Riddle and Kip Walton) for more than $500,000 in breach of contract damages. Ray said the defendants, who assured him of a $5,000 fee, were expecting to pay him for profits out of the sale of the show, but ended up with less than they had anticipated, and never met the obligation.
