There is so much more Sam Cooke coming on the market these days - so why do I feel so irritable about most of the CDs I see?
I have no quarrel with "Portrait Of A Legend", an excellent 30 track overview in glorious re-cast sound; but the problems begin with the 4CD box set, "The Man Who Invented Soul". This contains a lot of great stuff,some rarish curiosities, quite a lot of filler, and unforgivably halts at the end of '62, before the wonderful peak of Sam's last two years.Whatever the reasons, they can make no sense at all in artistic terms.
"Keep Movin' On" seems to be an attempt to rectify the omissions of the box set by focusing on '63-'64. Unfortunately, the album includes a number of late classics that appeared on "Portrait", plus blatant filler like "The Riddle Song" and "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You", which surely only a lifelong Cooke fanatic like me could listen to politely!
However, if you're new to Sam, bought "Portrait" and want to dip your toe in a little further, there are at least three solid reasons to get this CD.
First, there is the previously unreleased title track, a delightful, swingalong piece which Sam throws off so casually (it sounds like a demo)that it's awhile before you realise what an unpretentious little beauty it is. But that's nothin'. There are two further gems which have been criminally ignored by Cooke-compilers over the years and which may be appearing on CD for the first time....
"Yeah Man!" must be one of the most joyful secular songs Sam ever cut. It's pure party, taken very fast with Sam giggling all the way through it and a big vocal chorus yelling him on. It's up there with "Twisting The Night Away, "Shake," and "Having A Party." It sounds like a huge hit single, and was apparently intended for release and then pulled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 10 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
For an album recorded back in 1963-64, its sound quality is amazing. This is the best sounding cd I've ever heard from this period. Almost everything that's missing in RCA box set "The Man who invented the Soul" can be found here. Although not his most famous hits, song selection is on a par with them. A job well done, ABKCO!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Listening! 20 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
"Keep Movin' on" is a compilation that ,with a few exceptions, covers the last year of Sam Cooke's recording career. The last album released in his own lifetime, the great "Ain't That Good News" is almost completely covered here; along with rarities, singles and some of his very last recordings from November 1964.

For people who only know Sam Cooke from pop-hits like "Only Sixteen", "A Wonderful World" and "You Send Me", it may sound a little odd that Cooke is often called the creator of soul-music. This wouldn't be the case if they were familar with these late Sam Cooke recordings. "Ain't That Good New" is my favourite Sam Cooke original album; and most best from songs from that album such as "Meet Me at Mary's Place", "Good Times", "The Riddle Song" and the title track are included.

Other highlight are "Shake", "That's Where it's At" ( I believe this song inspired Otis Redding to do "That's How Strong my Love is" ), and the previously unreleased "Keep Moving On"

Fine informative 26 pages booklet included!

Essential listening for fans of early soul-music - and fans of good music in general!
