Lost footage of Ray Charles performing at the Antibes Jazz Festival in France from 50 years ago has been unearthed for a new concert movie Dvd.
Eagle Rock Entertainment and Reelin' In The Years Productions have teamed up to distribute Ray Charles - Live In France 1961, which features the late R&B icon onstage with the original Raeletts and his band comprising David 'Fathead' Newman and Hank Crawford.
The digitally restored and remastered footage features some of Charles' first-ever performances in Europe, and includes tracks like What'd I Say, Georgia On My Mind and I Believe To My Soul.
Reelin' In The Years president David Peck, who co-produced the film, tells WENN, "This Ray Charles footage was never intended to be shown as a full-length project, but I saw one of the songs on a programme, then saw another performance. Then we found the radio recordings of the full sets, giving us a way to edit everything together to become this seamless experience and amazing document of Ray Charles."
The Dvd will be released in October (11).
