4.0 out of 5 stars "...You Make Me Weep...You Make Me Cry..." January 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I've had this pre-ordered in the UK for months and when it arrived, I ripped off the shrink rap with an indecent haste. And I'm thrilled to say that Sony/Legacy has done a very tasty job indeed - tracks and albums that are NEW TO CD. And pitched at roughly three pounds per disc (five bucks USA), this wee beauty is also reasonably priced (even as an import).

Here are the details: UK released Monday 14 November 2011 (22 Nov in the USA) - "The RCA Albums Collection" on RCA Records-Sony/Legacy 88697898702 has 8 US albums on 8CDs and breaks down as follows:

1. "Cooke's Tour" - a 12-track LP originally released April 1960 on RCA Victor LSP-2221 (36:59 minutes)
2. "Hits Of The 50's" - a 12-track LP originally released August 1960 on RCA Victor LSP-2236 (33:57 minutes)
3. "Swing Low" - a 12-track LP originally released March 1961 on RCA Victor LSP-2293 (36:31 minutes)
4. "My Kind Of Blues" - a 12-track LP originally released October 1961 on RCA Victor LSP-2392 (32:52 minutes)
5. "Twistin' The Night Away" - a 12-track LP originally released April 1962 on RCA Victor LSP-2555 (29:18 minutes)
6. "Mr. Soul" - a 12-track LP originally released February 1963 on RCA Victor LSP-2673 (36:06 minutes)
7. "Night Beat" - a 12-track LP originally released September 1963 on RCA Victor LSP-2709 (37:45 minutes)
8. "One Night Stand! Live At The Harlem Square Club, 1963" - a 10-track show recorded 12 January 1963, but not released until June 1985 on RCA Victor AFL 1-5181 (38:49 minutes)

I half expected the booklet to be slight and useless, but at 24-pages and with full music credits and discography info on all eight albums - it isn't. There's also a short essay by STUART COLEMAN and great black & white snaps of Sam in the studio.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sam Cooke, The King of Soul March 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Eight albums from the RCA creative period of the artist's soul in a box! It's admirable of RCA Records, which they ever after so many years, some albums that were for so long no longer available, have again made me and other fans available.
Small drop of bitterness for bonus tracks such as Endstanden songs as singles only at that time, nor place would have been. Some titles have been published only on the albums' Shake (X) "," Try A Little Love (X) "," Ain't That Good News (X) "and" The Unforgettable Sam Cooke (X) are also .. not been considered since the above-mentioned four albums emerged only after his death, have already been released and unreleased tracks used remains to hope that these titles that I still search in another collection as "Singles - EPs and Rare album track-Edition "(see also: [ASIN:B004GZSWXC Wonderful World - The Very Best of Sam Cooke 1957-60 [ORIGINAL RECORDINGS REMASTERED] 2CD SET]]. It would be published for a further assessment of the Sam Cooke last year, 80 years old become geschirr. All tracks on the box are digital remastered and Booklett is attending with Photos and information about many albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Collection of Sam's RCA LPs May 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Of course, I have every single Sam Cooke LP ever released but it is a hassle to play vinyl these days. This collection contains some excellent re-engineered copies of Sam's RCA LP releases. You have to be a true Sam Cooke fan to enjoy these, however, because the LPs rarely contained all the Top 40 hits. Missing is The Best of Sam Cooke LP (the yellow cover) and the LPs released through the Tracey Limited arrangement. Those items belong to ABKCO. The booklet included with this package is excellent and contains some great information. A true Sam Cooke fan will love it.

Material recorded after September 1963, which Sony (RCA) couldn't license, belongs to ABKCO.
