A stone classic – not just from Sam Cooke, but in the genre of "best of" records too!

RCA, 1965. Good+
Collection of Sam Cooke's wonderful soul for RCA, compiled just after his untimely death. The set's divided into more uptempo numbers on the first side, and Sam's great ballads on the flip, all with his rich voice ringing clearly on top. Features "Shake", "Yeah Man", 'Win ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1964. Very Good+
A classic live album – one of the first in soul music, and a beautiful set of smooth soul tunes from Sam Cooke! Sam's singing at the high-end nitespot The Copacabana – and like many live sets performed there, this one's tailored a bit to the classy crowd at the show – but that ... LP, Vinyl record album

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! The album's got a bit more sophistication than the first – a style that's still drenched in Franklin's deep soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keep The Dream Alive – Dr Martin Luther King
RCA, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Excellent raw live set from the early 70s – featuring a host of artists from the RCA stable, all paying tribute to the late Dr. Martin Luther King.

Highly Distinct
RCA, 1969. Very Good
Beautiful baroque soul from LA – and the kind of record you might pass up, but don't! The Friends of Distinction were always best known for their big hit version of "Grazing In the Grass" (not on this LP), but they were a pretty progressive soul group, and they spent a lot of time ...

LTD
RCA, 1970. Sealed
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. The album's a great illustration of the sort of pop soul sound the band was perfecting – a style that ... LP, Vinyl record album

A stripped down, bluesy folk soul set of Dylan tunes by Odetta – returning some kudos to a kid who was hugely inspired by her earlier material in the late 50s – a really beautiful record and possibly one of the best ever Dylan covers albums! Odetta Sings Dylan is actually one of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leader
RCA, 1983. Very Good+
Slammin' 80s groove material from Fonzi Thornton – a bit dated, perhaps, but sparkling with the best of its generation! Fonzi's vocals are less the strong part of the album than are the tight arrangements that mix together bass riffing, keyboards, and a smooth approach to the groove that ...
