A treasure trove of newly discovered recordings, highlighted by a duet with fellow icon Johnny Cash ("Why Me Lord?"), Rare Genius was released by Concord Records in April 2010 to celebrate Charles' 80th birthday (he would have turned 80 on September 23, 2010.

Culled from four decades worth of demos and other previously unreleased material, Rare Genius showcases the remarkable artistic vision, stylistic range and emotionally rich vocals that crafted Charles enduring legacy. An essential insight into one of the 20th Century's greatest musical icons.

Ray would always get inside the meaning of a lyric and make the listener believe every word. His vocals carried incredible emotion and intensity, even on demo tapes. What we have here with Rare Genius is on par with some of his greatest works.
