Here is where you'll find it...accept no substitutes. The World's failure to passionately embrace the music of Sam Cooke (if not the man himself)stands as one of life's great disappointments. A brilliant songwriter with a voice and charisma that could only be called a gift, Sam Cooke was the daddy of them all. His recordings were so diverse and yet singularly unique entirely him. Catching up on his work is an extremely rewarding experience, and easier all the time as more and more of his work becomes readily avalible.

There are lot claasics from RCA and his other labels and some rarities on this CD. Too bad he died at such a young age. He would have been a bigger legend than James Brown and Ray Charles.
