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. On the liner notes of this LP, you will find a number of quotes from such notable performers as Smokey Robinson, Rod Stewart, Aretha Franklin, and Keith Richards praising Sam Cooke and describing the influence the man and his music has had on their own careers.

The Wonderful World of Sam Cooke is the fifth studio album by the legendary American singer-songwriter Sam Cooke. One of the records originally released on Keen, in this album we find Sam combining the best of his talents on 12 selections that run the gamut of musical forms and styles: from the popular ballad and uptempo "top 40" type of song to the heartfelt spiritual and blues. "Needless to say, The Wonderful World of Sam Cooke would not be complete without the inclusion of his popular hit recording of 'Wonderful World.' --from the original liner notes. A numbered limited edition pressed on Audiophile Clear Vinyl (ACV).
