Ray Charles Live In Antibes (1985)

Cover festival program.
A concert in Antibes in 1985, that I speculated about beforehas survived in the INA archives (ID PHY11006183*). The show took place on July 20th. The band did an inspired job with the instrumentals. Ray got the French audience on their knees with For Mamma.
  1. Woody 'n' Bu (Ray Charles Orchestra)
  2. Blues For Nya Nya (Ray Charles Orchestra)
  3. Wave (Ray Charles Orchestra)
  4. Spain (Ray Charles Orchestra)
  5. Intro RC
  6. Riding Thumb
  7. Busted
  8. Georgia On My Mind
  9. Oh, What A Beautiful Morning
  10. I've Got News For You
  11. Some Enchanted Evening
  12. For Mamma
  13. Intro Raelettes
  14. I Want Your Love
  15. Anyway You Want To
  16. Don't Change On Me
  17. I Can't Stop Loving You
  18. Knock On Wood
  19. 3/4 Time
  20. Born To Love Me
  21. What'd I Say (with I'm Gonna Keep On Singing intro)
  22. Outro
INA specifies only a few band members (Jeff Kaye, Mark Curry - tp; Delfeayo Marsalis - tb; Clifford Solomon - as, bandleader, Rudy Johnson - ts, Ernest  Vantrease - p, org), and all (or 4 out of 5?) Raelettes: Marie Woodward (= Elaine Woodard?), Estella Yarbrough, Trudy Cohran, Janice Mitchell.

* Good sound quality on average, but minor flaws in mic'ing, hick-ups and silences  in board mix and final edit. There's a second INA-file, PMY14001168, which just is an incomplete and mixed-up copy of the same concert.
