Description

  • By far the most important and influential Gospel and secular R&B singer of his era, honey-voiced Sam Cooke is universally acknowledged as “The man who invented Soul.”
  • This compilation presents all eight singles plus the standout tracks from his five LPs issued during 1961-62, a period during which Cooke was particularly prolific, and hit his first creative peak.
  • It is the follow-up to an earlier Jasmine compilation, Wonderful World (JASCD 152), which traced Cooke’s career from 1957-60.
  • Includes a number of his biggest, career-defining hits, notably That’s It – I Quit – I’m Moving On,Cupid, Twistin’ The Night Away, Bring It On Home To Me, Havin’ A Party, Nothing Can Change This Love, Somebody Have Mercy and Send Me Some Lovin’’.
  • Also includes his rarest-ever 45rpm release, Just For You’/‘Made For Me; both sides are hard to find elsewhere on CD.
