The show has two sources: Pure Genius: The Complete Atlantic Recordings 1952-1959, an incredible eight disc box set released in 2005; and the first episode from the 2005 BBC documentary series Soul Deep.
The show is not intended to be comprehensive, chronological, or any suchlike. If anything, it is intended to point out just how awesome the material (from my favorite era of Ray’s music, the Atlantic years) on Pure Genius is.
The Spotify set list is here (does not include documentary material).
Hope you can stop by, listen to the show, and join us in chat.
