Notes

The Versatile Talents of Sam Cooke

There is one man to whom every young singer on today's popular-music charts owes a lot. He's the guy who brought the fabulous "soul" sound to pop music- THE ONE AND ONLY SAM COOKE.

Sam's very personal style-infused with the power and spirit from his Gospel-singing days-brought him straight up to the top. Starting with his first huge smash, You Send Me, Sam put hit after hit high on the charts until his untimely death in 1964.

Thanks to record albums like this one, you can still enjoy the full range of Sam's versatile talents. In this collection you'll hear Sam singing every kind of song: hot rockers like Trouble in Mind, bluesy ballads like Don't Get Around Much Anymore, Litt/e Girl Blue and Since I Met You Baby, and folk favorites like Jamaica Farewell and They Call the Wind Maria. And he sings his own exciting versions of Broadway's Bali Ha'i, the romantic Far Away Places and the spiritual Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.

Listening to Sam always makes it easy to understand why he's still so popular. As one of the titles in this album puts it: The Song Is Ended (But the Melody Lingers On).
