There's a timeless quality to Sam Cooke's music. And while he's been imitated from Dr. Hook and the Animals to Rod Stewart and Art Garfunkel, they've never matched the soulfulness of these originals. While The Best Of does a fine job of covering his early commercial peak (1957-1962), it overlooks his gospel music and his post-1962 output.

Sam Cooke was a magically gifted singer whose easy-going, mellifluously liquid voice never fails to lift me from even the darkest of moods. His roots were in gospel music, the powerfully joyous element of which underlies all of his music. He exudes happiness in both his appearance as well as his music; it's impossible to picture Sam Cooke without that bright smile he always seemed to have. Dubbed the king of soul by many music fans, Sam Cooke left a musical legacy of great importance. His influence on past, present, and future singers sometimes goes unspoken and unrecognized but is profound nevertheless.

The Sam Cooke songs I sometimes hear on oldies radio stations, classics such as Chain Gang, Cupid, Another Saturday Night, Twistin' the Night Away,
Wonderful as they are, really don't even begin to show the immense talent and diversity of this consummate performer.
