The legendary Sam Cooke (who died tragically at the age of 33) left an indelible mark on the face of popular music. Much like his contemporary Ray Charles, Cooke successfully synthesized a blend of gospel music and secular themes that provided the early foundation of SOUL music. He is one of the most important singers and composers of the genre. Without a doubt, Cooke had one of the smoothest and most soulful voices around.

Even today there are few voices that can compare. This remastered and quintessential 2CD edition includes all the hits he recorded for different labels, such as Specialty, Keen, SAR and RCA-Victor, between 1954 and 1962. It contains the finest moments and most iconic songs of Cooke's career. His legacy represents a fundamental cornerstone of soul, R&B and gospel. All of these fabulous tracks continue to stand the test of time. There’s no better proof of Sam Cooke’s genius than these soulful, joyous, exuberant, stylish and passionate recordings.
