This is a discography of American musician Ray Charles. Hundreds of Ray Charles compilations and "Greatest Hits" albums have been released and continue to be produced and released by various labels around the world.

Ray Charles is the first release on LP by American pianist, vocalist, and band leader Ray Charles. Originally released in 1957 on Atlantic Records, it was re-released as Hallelujah I Love Her So in 1962. Many of the tracks had been hit singles for Ray Charles in the preceding years, notably "Mess Around" in 1953, "A Fool for You" and "I Got A Woman" in 1955, "Drown In My Own Tears" and "Hallelujah I Love Her So" in 1956. All songs written by Ray Charles except as indicated.

The Genius of Ray Charles is the sixth studio album by American recording artist Ray Charles, released in 1959 by Atlantic Records. The album eschewed the soul sound of his 1950s recordings, which fused jazz, gospel, and blues, for swinging pop with big band arrangements. It comprises a first half of big band songs and a second half of string-backed ballads

With 1959’s The Genius of Ray Charles, the maestro produced a cinematic expansion of his rollicking, heartrending R&B. In the first half, big-band arrangements transform ’Deed I Do and Let the Good Times Roll from beat-up pickup trucks into shiny, new Cadillacs. In the second half, a string orchestra elevates ballads like Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying and Am I Blue into luxurious expressions of loss and loneliness. Through it all, Ray’s voice channels the rough-hewn emotion that was often lacking in an era of candy-flavored crooners

The remaining six numbers are ballads, with Charles backed by a string orchestra arranged by Ralph Burns (including "Come Rain or Come Shine" and "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Cryin'"). Charles' voice is heard throughout in peak form, giving soul to even the veteran standards.
