    Yes Indeed! is the third album by Ray Charles, released in 1958 by Atlantic. It was the second of three Atlantic LPs that compiled Charles’ hit singles for the label — Wikipedia.

    The originally release from 1958 came with a cover design by Marvin Israel, featuring all-lowercase letters for the artist’s name and the title. For the 1964 re-release shown below, Loring Eutemey turned up the typographic volume quite a bit and even added a second exclamation mark to the title.
