Ray Charles Live In Charlotte Pops Concert (1998)

On October 1, 1998 Ray Charles performed with his trio and The Charlotte Philharmonic (conductor Albert-George Schram) at Ballroom C of the Charlotte Convention Center. There must be a bootleg out there. (The week before, on September 29, Ray had already performed nearby, at the North Carolina Blumenthal Performing Arts Center - probably with his own orchestra).

The tracklist of the bootleg (corrections in red):
  1. [audience noise +] Intro
  2. It Hurts To Be In Love
  3. That Lucky Old Sun
  4. Let's Get Away From It All
  5. Georgia On My Mind
  6. Take These Chains From My Heart
  7. Your Cheating Heart
  8. The Good Life
  9. Say No More
  10. Blues For Big Scotia
  11. A Song For You
  12. All I Ever Need Is You
  13. [introduction +] America The Beautiful
 #4 is new (to me) on Ray's 'symphony gig' playlist. It's probably the Tommy Dorsey song.
