It's rough. It's tough. It's raw. It's energetic. It's emotion. It's power. It's audience. It's like you are there yourself. It's like you are a part of the audience. It's like you can touch Sam Cooke himself.

It cracks. It swings. It smashes. It sweats. It will make you feel Sam Cooke is exhaustion at the end of the show. It's 100% live soul. It's Sam Cooke at his peak. It's Sam Cooke delivering 100%.

At the time of writing this review: It's missing in Amazon's top 25 live album of all times. It's missing in Rolling Stone reader Top 10 poll. It's missing in NME's top 20. The record is missing in a lot of top live albums.

And that's a thing I just can not understand. This live performance from 1963 (!) shows how an artist or a band should deliver a live performance. It's such an excellent energetic performance it blows me everytime away. You actually can hear little cracks in Sam Cooke his voice, but his voice doesn't collapse. It is impossible to sit still, to read a book or to stand still once Sam Cooke starts to perform with this performance. His invisible hand will grab you and will drag you to the speakers.

It's still my all time favorite live record. What a record. What a live performance.

I thought this would be brilliant; it was better. Electric performance from one of the greatest singing talents ever. A shame that there isn't more of it. You'll be singing these songs for weeks!

One of the greatest live albums of all time. Sam Cooke's vocal performance is quite different to the majority of his studio recordings, raw, soulful and charismatic

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Sam Cooke 19 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Sam Cooke as long as I can remember (and I'm ancient now). This album shows Sam at his best, working a crowd in live performance with a powerful, exciting performance, in contrast to some of his RCA recordings which came perilously close to easy listening. The live album is closer to his work with the Soul Stirrers and I recommend it unreservedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the greatest of all live albums. 27 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD
As every reviewer has already said, this is a fabulous recording - an absolutely stunning live performance that just sweeps you away. It ought to be at the top of every poll in every book or magazine, but oddly it isn't - don't ask me why. Personally I rate it higher than JB's Live at the Apollo, and BB King's Live at the Regal.
