Albany-- Music legend Ray Charles leaves one last nugget as a legacy to music lovers.

"Genius Loves Company" includes Charles' final recordings as well 12 collaborations with some of the biggest artists in Rock 'n' Roll, R&B, Country, Jazz, and Blues.

Music stores aren't expecting it stay on shelves very long. Gilbert Udoto of Odyssey Records is an authority on the subject. "By him being a native son, everybody wants to be a part of everything Ray Charles has produced," says Udoto.

The album also comes with a DVD with never seen before footage of the Albany native.
