Soul man Ray Charles isn't letting death get in the way of his music revival - he's re-releasing one of his acclaimed duets albums with additional tracks.

Charles, who died last year (04) could well be back on top of the album charts next month (JUL05) when his 1984 project Friendship is reissued by Columbia/Legacy Records.

The country-flavoured disc features duets with Willie Nelson, GEORGE JONES, CHET ATKINS and Johnny Cash.

New tracks will include two rarely-heard duets Charles recorded 20 years ago with Billy Joel and Tony Bennett.
