The 2 Sides of Sam Cooke

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
This 12-song release splits its time between Cooke's early gospel sides as a member of the Soul Stirrers "The Last Mile of the Way," "Were You There," "Touch the Hem of His Garment" and his early attempts at crossing over into pop music, including "Lovable," which was originally issued under the name of Dale Cooke to avoid upsetting his gospel fans. A major highlight is "Jesus Gave Me Water," Sam's first recording, done when he was 19 years old. Top-notch liner notes from Barret Hansen aka Dr. Demento make this a great little package well worth checking out. The CD is a straight-up reissue of the original vinyl album from 1970.
