In 1961, music was still on short play 45s.

Back to Ray ... having seen 20 Feet From Stardom recently, I wonder who's singing backup ...

 
Seek and ye shall find.

"Hit the Road Jack" is a song written by rhythm and bluesman Percy Mayfield and first recorded in 1960 as an a cappella demo sent to Art Rupe. It became famous after it was recorded by singer-songwriter-pianist Ray Charles with The Raelettes vocalist Margie Hendricks.

Walked into The Little Grill in Harrisonburg VA for breakfast on Sunday, and this was blasting away on the house system. If you have a chance  to visit Harrisonburg, seek out The Little Grill. Tiny, funky, and the best restaurant breakfast I've had since Mama's Royal Cafe in Oakland many years ago.

I never realized the true genius of Ray Charles until I saw the film "RAY". Jamie Foxx nailed it. I now see RC as one the greatest artists ever, especially considering the time period and personal challenges he had. Just saying....

10 all the way. When my dad listened to Ray Charles I didn't realize how cool either one of them were.

This is a classic song. You join 4 others out of 823 who've rated this song "1".....think about that. That's a minority of  0.0061%, one of the smallest minorities I've ever seen.

Mea culpa.  I suppose I can expect the IRS to come knocking on my door in the dead of night for that little transgression.

Wonderlizard, you actually had breakfast at MRC?  The BEST omelets in the world.  OMG, I didn't know there was anyone else out there old enough to know of the place.  Also a Godlike 10.

 
I went to college in H-burg back in the late 80s - early 90s when the Little Grill got its start.  Always make sure to fit in a visit when I am back home.  Your comment just made me very nostalgic...

Listening to RP during a four hour train ride (another advantage of rail!), and although there has been lots of great music, this is the first one that has me bopping in my seat in public. Just can't stop...

If this isn't godlike, no music is...
