Ray Charles Live In Rome (1999)

On 28 July 1999 Ray Charles, the Ray Charles Orchestra and The Raelettes played a concert at the RomaLive Festival. Read review here; according to this source a.o. the following tunes were on the setlist:
  • Angelina
  • I Can't Stop Loving You 
  • I Want Your Love
  • Smack Dab In The Middle
  • People Will Say We're In Love (with Raelettes)
  • What'd I Say  
The concert was recorded for TV illegally. The day after some band members - much to their surprise - saw back the whole concert in their hotel rooms, on a local channel.* The Italian promoters had possibly allowed the station to tape the gig to make some extra money on the side.

Who knows more?
