5.0 out of 5 stars It's Finally Here!! Sam Cooke at his best (?), November 30, 2005
This review is from: Complete Recordings of Sam Cooke with the Soul Stirrers (Audio CD)
In the last few years the work of Sam Cooke has gotten more attention. Not only for his soulo work but also what he did when he was with the greatest gospel group of the 1950's: The Soul Stirrers.

There have been some albums which had some of his gospel stuff but there were always songs missing. Now Specialty decided to put all his gospel stuff on three CD's and add a nice booklet with an exstensive history of the group.

Some people may find it somewhat hard to realize but for a long time Sam was bigger in the gospelfield than the popfield. Some even say that his best work was as a member of the Soul Stirrers.

The booklet gives detailed information on the recording sessions and they placed the songs on the CD's in chronological order so you can hear the development.

Besided being a very gifted singer he also was good songwriter as you can hear on these CD's.

The best addition is three songs from a live show in the LA Shrine Auditorioum with songs that go on forever and when they really shout.

This is definitely a CD to have if you are interested in gospel, Sam Cooke or the birth of soul in general.

This is the ultimate Sam Cooke and The Soul Stirrers collection.
