So this may be the first time this has hit DVD. I couldn’t find any others and I hadn’t heard of it before. It’s Ray Charles in Ballad in Blue, out from Lionsgate under their Music Makers banner. Couldn’t find a trailer, but the premise is that Ray, playing himself, befriends a blind boy and his mom. It’s a British film as well. But this would eventually lead his film career towards stuff like this, so it’s all good.
And here’s one of the few clips I was able to find online:
The DVD also comes with a Music Makers compilation CD, which has one Ray song on it: “I Got a Woman.” And we’ve got a copy of this release available for you to win. Want to try and win it?
