When Ray Charles moved over to ABC Paramount from Atlantic in 1960, he put out a handful of singles before he started recording the concept albums he had been intent on since signing with ABC, like Genius Hits the Road, Dedicated to You, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music — the list goes on and on. That doesn’t mean his new record company wasn’t releasing hit singles on him from the very start—note “Sticks and Stones,” “Georgia on My Mind,” “One Mint Julep,” “Hit the Road, Jack” for starters. Here is his first single for ABC, “My Baby (I Love Her Yes I Do),” a showcase for Margie Hendricks like “What Kind of Man Are You” was for Mary Ann Fisher on one of Ray’s final Atlantic singles.
