A stone classic – not just from Sam Cooke, but in the genre of "best of" records too! The set's overflowing with classic singles from the legendary soul singers – almost the perfect record to start with if you've ever wanted to sample Sam's genius – that amazing voice, intimate sense of presentation, and undeniably mature, masculine sound that forever changed the face of soul music! Every track's a winner – and titles include "Only Sixteen", "You Send Me", "Cupid", "Chain Gang", "Having A Party", "Twistin The Night Away", "Wonderful World", "Summertime", "Everybody Loves To Cha Cha", "For Sentimental Reasons", "Sad Mood", and "Bring It On Home To Me".

RCA, 1964. Near Mint-
A classic live album – one of the first in soul music, and a beautiful set of smooth soul tunes from Sam Cooke!

Chain Reaction
RCA, 1970. Very Good
Proud and loud female soul from Carolyn Franklin – a singer who's every bit as great as her famous sisters Aretha and Erma – heard here on her second outing for RCA!

RCA, 1970. Very Good+
A great early album by Main Ingredient – with the roots of their classic 70s harmony sound, and some excellent arrangements by Bert De Coteaux that give the band a nice tight sound.

Smooth Talk
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
Wonderfully smooth soul from Evelyn Champagne King – one of her real standouts from the early days, and a tremendous collaboration with producer/arranger T Life!

Grits & Soul
Smash, 1964. Very Good-
One of the grooviest of the James Brown instrumental albums recorded for Smash. Unlike some of the other weaker albums on Smash, this one's got a great batch of material, most of which are originals, and not weak covers of pop tunes. Plus, the tracks are longer than usual, which gives the band a ... LP, Vinyl record album
