10th Anniversary Limited Edition 180g Vinyl 45rpm Double LP!

Duets with Norah Jones, Diana Krall, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, and More!


Upon its release in 2004, few could have predicted the extraordinary, game-changing effect that Ray Charles’ final recording would have on both his career and the industry as a whole.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of its release, Concord Music Group in conjunction with The Ray Charles Foundation and Hear Music re-introduce this treasured album as a special 10th Anniversary Edition 180g Vinyl 45rpm Double LP.

One of Charles’ most inspirational and historically significant albums, Genius Loves Company captures the genius of the music icon in his last studio recording pairing him with legendary guest artists including Norah Jones, Diana Krall, James Taylor, Elton John, Willie Nelson and Bonnie Raitt to name a few.

With over 5.5 million copies sold, Ray Charles' final studio album is certified multi-platinum, Gold or Silver in numerous territories around the world.

The album was awarded eight Grammy Awards including "Album of The Year" and "Record of The Year" in 2005, tying with the number of Grammy awards won for Norah Jones' "Come Away With Me" and Michael Jackson's "Thriller" albums.

“Ray was shocked that these people wanted to sing with him,” recalls Ray Charles Foundation president Valerie Ervin. “He just didn’t understand the magnitude of where he was in the industry. As weak as he became…he made sure he gave his best for every artist that was there for him.”
