The Best of Sam Cooke, NOT2CD386
This new compilation comprises CD1 a selection of 26 songs including all the hits associated with Sam Cooke. The period covered is 1957 (5); 1958 (4); 1959 (8) & 1960 (9) tracks with a total running time of approx 66 minutes. The recordings are from the Keen Records and RCA label. CD2 has for the first time on CD the RCA albums "Swing Low" with orchestra under Sammy Lowe and has 3 of Sam Cooke's compositions included plus his debut album "Cooke's Tour" with orchestra under Glenn Osser and both albums date from 1960, recorded in New York City and were originally released as LPM 2293 & LPM2221. The running time for this CD is approx 72 minutes. Liner notes by Michael Heatley and the inner liner displays the covers of the 2 RCA albums. "Swing Low" is quite a contrast to the more standards orientated "Cooke's Tour" and yet the common thread is the ability of Sam Cooke to give his interpretation of the song (gospel, R&B, soul & middle of the road). Overall sound quality very good and well presented by Not Now and another excellent addition to their catalogue. This release should interest both collectors and those who want a rounded collection of Sam Cooke titles. Good value.

What can you really say about Sam Cooke? here was a young man who brought a fresh sound to the history of music. His hits are truly wonderful, and yet here on this album, Sam moves his magic to songs such as South of the Border, Galway Bay and many others that you would not associate him with. My how he can handle these songs with such ease, his voice is timeless...who knows what Sam may have acheived had he lived. Singers like Sam come along only once in a life time, yet for us, and future generations his music will long continue.

This is the first time I've really listened to Sam Cooke - outside his 'hit parade' that is - what a voice, what an artist! The first 12 tracks of CD2 which are from the original album 'Swing Low' are particularly great! Great sound quality. Great value. What have I been missing for the last 50 years!

I love this singer. Played the album and loved it. Nice to see You Send Me as one of the title listings. Heard that many years ago. It's been ages since I heard it. There are some covers of songs done here by Sam Cooke. Ol' Man River is one I normally associate with Paul Robeson.

This is a lovely album.

Grew up with Sam Cooke's music, but has taken all this time to realize what a giant of an artist he really was. Thank you to you tube, where I stumbled upon his music. Great. When my car was taken in for a service the driver who collected the car said that he was going to buy this C.D.

I don't think there is anything generally on the pop scene today that compares with what was available in the sixties. I have always admired Sam Cooke and his easy singing style, no shouting and melodic music that one can singalong with, not to mention the understandable lyrics. I enjoyed this album and is destined to be played over and over again
