5.0 out of 5 stars The liverecord that makes you feel like you are there yourself, 2 Jan 2014
This review is from: One Night Stand - Sam Cooke Live At The Harlem Square Club, 1963 (Audio CD)
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.
