The light blues and jazz of Ray Charles’ early recordings were heavily influenced by Nat King Cole, and Charles frequently recorded in a similar trio format. His sound changed dramatically soon after he signed to Atlantic in 1952: His singing became more forceful and confident, and his rock ’n’ soul performances were unlike anything he had done earlier for the Swing Time or Down Beat labels. Night Train’s two-disc set collects 45 of Charles’ rare recordings for the aforementioned independent labels, including several alternate takes, all of which find him in an imitative mode that pales beside his later trailblazing sides. It is interesting to hear a reserved Ray Charles croon his way through these arrangements, many of which are frankly lackluster despite the presence of supporting players like Stanley Turrentine (a situation not improved by the slightly murky sound quality and sometimes wobbly pitch of the source material). As a historical document, this is a comprehensive look at Charles’ early output, with session information and cursory notes, but without songwriting or publishing information. Buyers looking for early, raw R&B won’t find it here, but serious devotees of Ray Charles will appreciate this archival release. ~ Greg Adams, All Music Guide
