When Ray's son is watching Bandstand on the television while Ray is getting ready to leave for another concert, a digital counter can be seen on the television screen, clearly indicating that an archive film clip is being broadcast.
While touring with Lowell Fulsom, the band drives past a train that includes "spine" rolling stock with containers stacked two high. These cars (along with containers) were not introduced until many years later.
While recording "Georgia On My Mind", the microphone he is singing into reads "ABC-Paramount." At the time, ABC Records did not have it's own recording studio. This particular session was recorded at Capitol Studios in New York City.
When the DJ is playing I've Got A Woman, the record label is red. However, Atlantic records was still using yellow labels on their 45s until # 1083, and this record was # 1050. A red label would be a reissue.
During Ray's World Tour set in the 60's, there is a shot of an airport approach with a clearly visible 737-300 or -400. While the 737 first entered commercial service in 1968, the 300/400 variants weren't introduced until 1985.
An airliner is shown landing during one of Ray's early 1960s tours. The plane is clearly a modern twin-engine jet (737, 757, or 767) instead of one of the three or four engine jets in use in the early 1960s.
When Ray is playing chess near the end of the film, he takes the white queen off the board and lays it on its side. Then the queen is back where it was, and on the third shot, the board is set up for a new game.
When Ray is getting on the bus in the beginning of the film to go to Seattle, Ray extends his arm fully with the ticket in hand for the bus driver. In the next shot, his arm is to his side. In the next shot, its up and extended again
In the extended version, after Ray plays a country song for an audience for the first time and is discussing the lighting with Joe Adams, a "Cut!" can be heard at the end of the scene and (interestingly) is even shown on the subtitles.
The scene where Charles is met by a group of protesters outside the Bell Auditorium in Augusta, Georgia is a fabrication. Charles canceled his appearance after receiving a telegram from students at a local black college. The promoter successfully sued Charles for breach of contract, but he was never banned from the state of Georgia. When the Georgia state legislature honored Ray Charles in 1979, they didn't apologized for banning him because he was never banned. In the commentary, it is stated that this event actually happened, but those who looked into Georgia's legislature found no record that he was banned, just sued, and later they adopted as their state song "Georgia" - by Ray Charles.
When Ray is frying chicken, he gives "Q" a piece straight from the frying pan. "Q" instantly takes a bite, without blowing or insinuating the chicken is hot in any way. Real fried chicken straight from a hot pan would be impossible to eat instantly.
