Comments for the album Portrait Of A Legend 1951-1964 by Sam Cooke:
I know it's a greatest hits album. Sam Cooke was a singles artist, and you can't argue with the quality that is present here. He's a three-way tie with Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding for best soul singer ever. Modern singers need to tap into the soul that he pours out into every track. Even better live.
Sam Cooke pre-dated the album, so we're left to examine his legacy through brief 3 minute windows. You're left to wonder what could have been. Phenomenal singer, good compilation.
best song: "A change is gonna come".
Sam Cooke was the first black R&B artist to have creative control over his career. (Curtis Mayfield also did because he was a producer at the black owned Okeh record label) This was in the early Sixties long before Marvin Gaye's legendary battle with Barry Gordy to get "What's Going On?" released in 1970. Sam knew how to play the game because his singles had crossover appeal to white audiences but he still cut loose like Otis Redding when playing before black audiences on the chittlin' circuit clubs. If you listen to Sam's "Live at the Harlem Square Club 1963", you'll discover the grittier, more soulful side of Sam Cooke. Both Aretha & Otis worshipped Sam's voice and you'll see why if you listen to the Harlem Square Club album.
Its stuck between Sam Cooke and Otis Redding as my favourite soul singer
Best track: You Send Me
