VINE VOICEon 23 July 2001
This compilation of tracks by The Soul Stirrers, with the unmatched voice of Sam Cooke is an absolute knockout. There is not a dud track on the album. 'Touch the hem of His garment' is the most wonderful thing on it, and possibly the best thing SamCooke ever did; thats saying something. If you like black american music of this era, just buy it and delight yourself. It doesn't matter if you are not religious (I'm not), this is truly exceptional.

This is my favourite album and I hope to be playing it when I die ! I had the vinyl which was stolen along with others, so it was wonderful to acquire the cd. It is inspiring, soulful and deeply, deeply Christian. As stated in another review I have no doubt that Sam is part of the Heavenly Choir; what a voice ! The crystal clarity, the passion, the pain and the love all come through.
Apparently, despite his indiscretions, he was a sweet human being and he did his bit in healing the racial wounds in America. He stood up to be counted without resorting to aggression. Undoubtedly he had the quality of charisma which comes across is most of his music. His untimely death was a huge loss not only to music, but to the world.
This album is for anyone who wants to have their soul touched.
