    Today was a smackdown session between the original recordings of Ray Charles to Ray Sings, Basie Swings, where they took live performances of Ray singing and later dubbed in the Count Basie ghost band. I focused on comparing the original backup bands to the dubbed-in Count Basie band.

    In Let the Good Times Roll, the band in the original recording sounds more like Basie, but the sound isn't the best. In How Long Has This Been Going on, the Basie band plays basicially the same arrangement as the original but ends up sounding more like a dance band. The country songs are a vast improvement because they replaced the embarrasingly white choir with better background singers, and horns replace the thin strings in the original Crying Time. Look What They've Done to My Song is better in the later recording with a big band, and the background singers sing French properly.

    Overall, Ray Charles' singing is great on both of them. I've ended up prefering the original bands, but the Basie band still cooks. I'm keeping both in my rotation.
