  • Sam Cooke's pop masterpieces are bred into the very fabric of our culture. "You Send Me," "A Change is Gonna Come," "Chain Gang" and "What a Wonderful World" are the stuff that helped birth rock and roll and inspire artists as diverse as Van Morrison, Rod Stewart, and Ted Hawkins. There are a select few who will say that the real treasures are Cooke's earlier and lesser-known gospel releases. Upon listening to the joyous sounds he made with the seminal Soul Stirrers, it's a viable argument, not to mention a thrilling look at the singer in the process of developing his trademark vocal delivery.
  • Leaping out of the mostly accapella selections here is a young Cooke, his immaculate phrasing and signature "whoa-ooh-oh-oh-oh" already taking formation. It is arguable that the sense of passion and freedom here outstrips that of his pop recordings. Whatever your preferences, this collection is yet another piece of evidence that Sam Cooke was the greatest singer who ever lived.
