As a legacy this seems to represent a fundamental cornerstone of soul, R&B and gospel. All of these tracks will undoubtedly continue to stand the test of time. There’s no better proof of Sam Cooke’s genius than these soulful, melodic joyous, exuberant, religious, stylish and passionate recordings. This compilation has comprehensive liner notes and rare photos, what more do you need but just sit back relax and listen to the dulcet tones of Sam Cooke.

He could sing with a voice as smooth as silk, prolific in producing a lot of chart-topping hits with a light, sophisticated dusting of a pop touch. But he could also return to his gospel roots where he was already a star singer with the legendary Soul Stirrers and managing effortlessly to bring out such a harmonious lyrical soul ballad such as Bring It on Home to Me.

He died tragically at age 33 but his imprint on popular music and singing style will always remain and may never be repeated a pure joy.
