Sam Cooke: if you've only heard "What a wonderful world this would be" (as I had before hearing this) you're in for a shock. The man not only sounds incredible on all these ground-breaking soul tracks, but he wrote almost of them as well. You wouldn't be far off if you said he invented soul. There's him, there's Ray Charles, and then there's everybody else. That's how good this guy is.
His voice is beautiful, and the musical way in which he uses it is even better.

You can never really go wrong with a Sam Cooke album. This is no exception.The CD contains a good number of his 'hits'. Cooke works for just about any mood I happpen to be in. I often get in my car, pop in this CD, click on "Bring It On Home To Me" and just keep playing that song over and over. For you trivia buffs out there - that's Lou Rawls doing the harmony with Cooke on this track. You Send Me, Wonderful World, Twistin the NIght Away - work well for those upbeat moments. All in all - a CD worth buying.
