One more Ray Charles

It's not just Charles himself, it's his backing band.  There's just so much talent there that it's almost painful.  Same with singers like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin; their backing bands blew the doors off of any joint they played in.

Linda Ronstadt is probably the most famous example of having a backing band with loads of talent.

Her band went on to rename themselves 'The Eagles', and they put out a few good songs...

Yeah, if only they were able to find a guitarist, they coulda been a big act, you know? Like, the kind that would break up and get back together and have record crowds attend their shows.
