Recorded in late 1974 and early 1975 at RPM International in Los Angeles.
With The Ray Charles Orchestra, The Raelettes, on a few tracks also with some alumni of the band and other session musicians. An audiotape of a working session where Sid Feller and Ray Charles discussed and worked on the arrangement of the song has survived.
The band members were: Jeff Conrad, Bob Coassin, Phil Guilbeau, Jack Evans - trumpets; Wally Huff, Ken Tussing, Glen Childress, Steve Davis - trombones; Andy Ennis, Clifford Solomon, Ed Pratt, James Clay - saxophones; Leroy Cooper - baritone saxophone, band leader; Joe Harris - bass; Tony Matthews - guitar; Ernest Vantrease - keyboards. James Gadson - drums. The precise line-up of The Raelettes is uncertain.
This is where Ray may have picked up the tune.
