Rhino repackaged and re-released five Ray Charles' LPs on Atlantic -- The Great Ray Charles, Ray Charles at Newport, The Genius of Ray Charles, The Genius Sings the Blues, and The Genius After Hours --- as a slipcased box set. It's not a bad way to acquire the albums if you don't already own them, but isn't recommended for the casual fan. ~ Al Campbell
