The Ray Charles Singers were an ersatz conglomerate that held onto the last gasps of the mature middle-of-the-road fare that had all but dominated the pre-British Invasion pop charts. In fact, during the burgeoning days of Beatlemania, the Ray Charles Singers were able to take "Love Me With All Your Heart" from this long-player all the way to number three on the top singles survey - indeed, a lofty feat for any artist in April of 1964. The majority of the album's dozen entries were recent hits on the stage and silver screen

Prior to the outing heard here, the Ray Charles Singers had backed actor Dick Van Dyke on the aptly-titled long-player Dick Van Dyke, Songs I Like (1964). Al-Di-La and Other Extra-Special Songs for Young Lovers (1964) was the follow-up to Something Special for Young Lovers (1964), which included Charles and company's signature side "Love Me With All Your Heart" that hit the upper echelons of the Pop chart during April of 1964. The album offers more of the same unimaginative, lightweight elevator/on-hold easy listening twaddle that Beatlemania and the rest of the rock & roll.

From "A Special Something" 1967. Peak at: (16 weeks) Little By Little And Bit By Bit (. essel-M. Grudeff) by The Ray Charles Singers. The Ray Charles Singers are also known for a series of 30 choral record albums produced in the 1950s and 1960s for the Essex, MGM, Decca and Command labels.

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) (professionally known as simply Ray Charles) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and composer. Among friends and fellow musicians he preferred being called "Brother Ray". He was often referred to as "The Genius". Charles started losing his vision at the age of 5, and by 7 he was blind. He pioneered the soul music genre during the 1950s by combining blues, rhythm and blues, and gospel styles into the music he recorded for Atlantic
