"... enough to remind you why he was such a joy for more than 50 years. Good company for a genius whose like we will probably never see again."
- USA Today

"... showcases a man who continued to challenge the definition of just who Ray Charles was ... his passion and sincerity shine through on each of these songs ... a fitting final work by one of the original innovators of soul."
- PopMatters.com

Genius Loves Company ranks as one of music’s most inspirational and historically significant albums. Not only does the recording capture the genius of Ray Charles on his final studio album, duetting with legendary guest artists, it has been certified gold, silver and multi-platinum across North America, Europe and beyond since its original posthumous release in September 2004. This album sold three million copies in the US alone, where it went to number one. Genius Loves Company also garnered an astonishing eight Grammy Awards including Album of the Year and Record of the Year in 2005, tying with the number of Grammy Awards won by Norah Jones for Come Away With Me and Michael Jackson for Thriller.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
