Composed by:

Groundbreaking soul music pioneer Sam Cooke influenced generations of singers that followed. Between 1957 and his death seven years later, Cooke recorded an average of one top-ten single every four months. We all know the songs, and we all know they are great. But until now, nobody has known just how incredible these recordings actually sound. Now with every detail tended to and no expense spared, APO presents The Best of Sam Cooke on hybrid SACD. In most cases this was the first <0x2014> and often only <0x2014> Sam Cooke album people owned. Although there are more ambitious collections that show Cooke's remarkable range and diversity, this is still the best starting place. These are Cooke's biggest commercial hits and the "message in a bottle" that brought his gifts to millions of people. "He had an incomparable voice. Sam Cooke could sing anything and make it work. But when you're talking about his strength as a singer, range is not relevant. It was his power to deliver <0x2014> it was about his phrasing, the totality of his singing." <0x2014> Van Morrison
