“Ray Charles – Hit the Road Jack / The Danger Zone” was originally released in 1961 as 7″ 45 RPM vinyl EP by Véga Records, the French distributor for ABC-Paramount. ~ From the collection of Bibliothèque nationale de France.
The BnF’s audio collection, with over a million audio documents, is one of the oldest and most important ones in the world. Born in 1911 as the Archives de la parole (Archives of the spoken word), it was fortunate enough to be the recipient of donations from contemporary phonographic companies. In 1938, with the institution of legal deposit for phonograms, these contributions became systematic; to this very day, they constitute the collection’s main growth vector, forming a one-of-a-kind national heritage. This legal deposit is further complemented by donations and acquisitions.
