FWIW. I ran sound for Ray Charles on a show back in the early 70’s. No fancy console. Just some rack mounted Ampex mixers back then. I had a UREI LA3 compressor on the output of the final mixer. Ray sang about :30 of his first song during rehearsal and stopped. He asked if I had a compressor on his vocal. I told his manager I had an overall one. He said reduce the threshold or take it out. I did. I could not really hear much of what it was doing but he certainly could. Being blind affects senses differently.
