Live At The Harlem Square Club" (a 1963 Miami concert released in 1985) is justifiably revered as among R&B's classic live albums because, unlike Otis Redding's "Live In Europe" and James Brown's "Live At The Apollo," it shows Sam Cooke as the gospel/R&B shouter rarely heard on his Hugo and Luigi-produced, creamy smooth pop productions.

You get much from hearing the rollicking live versions of "Bring It On Home To Me," "Having A Party," "Nothing Can Change This Love," (which inspired Journey and Sam Cooke disciple Steve Perry's "Lovin', Touchin, Squeezin'") You get an inimate energy from this Miami club audience missing even from Brown and Redding's sets (recorded in larger arenas). As Peter Guralnick states in the set's liner notes, Cooke here is "...a harder, grittier version of the Sam Cooke we have known from his records, a singer closer to the gospel music with which he started out..."

Sam Cooke - Medley (It's All Right/Sentimental Reasons)

My favorite rendition of "Sentimental Reasons" ever..
he's whipping the females in the audience into an ecstatic frenzy at 4:10. Gives me chills to know that just one soulful dude can vitalize an audience like that..
