One of the best performers and voices in music probably ever. Sad that he would go so early.

I get it, this is a "best albums" website, not a "best artists" one, but I simply can't trust a "top artists" list if Sam Cooke is not at least in the top 30.

It's a shame this is a 'best albums' website. It means that artists from the singles era (before the mid sixties) are often overlooked. Sam Cooke is a perfect example of this. Despite his early demise, he has a phenomenal library of music. Nobody could swing with soul like Sam Cooke.
