A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

A Song for You

Ray Charles Robinson singing a Leon Russell song in 1999, in Frankfurt Germany. He was about 70 years old then. He hadn’t lost anything off his fastball.

There’s a convergence of material and audience and performer on display that’s pretty rare. You can hear a pin drop while he’s singing. You couldn’t hear a plane land when he’s finished.

    (I’m feeling nit-picky today.)
    It’s still good, tho…
