Legal and personal problems (not the least of which was the sudden drowning death of his infant son) kept Sam Cooke out of the recording studio for the bulk of 1963. When he finally returned there near year's end, he did so with a vengeance: A goldmine of new--and very strong--original songs, along with a handful of covers done his own way for good measure. It is those recording sessions conducted over the final year of Sam's life which comprise 90% of this outstanding--and phenomenal-sounding cd.
With the exception of gospel, pretty much the full gamut of Cooke's stylistic reservoir is tapped in this collection. If, for instance, dancing's your thing, "Shake," Good Times," "It's Got The Whole World Shakin'" and "Yeah Man," among others, will take care of you. (Note: The latter of those would later serve as an obvious musical and melodic springboard for Arthur Conley's classic "Sweet Soul Music.") If you want good soul-driven blues, "There'll Be No Second Time" and "Somebody Ease My Troubled Mind" will do you. There are tender ballads ("When A Boy Falls In Love"), and New Orleans-flavored r&b ("Cousin Of Mine" and "Basin Street Blues.") There are also two songs in this collection which were herebefore unreleased, the title track, and "I'm Just A Country Boy." The underrated Cooke original "Rome Wasn't Built In A Day" is one of my favorite cuts: Sounds to me like one which could have been issued as a single and had some chart success. And of course, I'd be remissed if I didn't mention Sam's greatest artistic achievement: "A Change Is Gonna Come.

Since I happened to give up a fine compilation CD "A Man and His Music", I had waited too long for listening to Sam Cooke's last recordings including 'A Change is Gonna Come', 'Another Saturday Nights', Good Times' and so on. However, now we can have them easily on CD because Abkco started releasing his hidden treasures, especially Cameo-Parkway recordings. If you want to taste only the cream of Sam Cooke tunes, you better get "Portrait of a Legend". But if you want to dig deeper, I recommend you to have this CD with "The Man Who Invented Soul" and CDs of his Soul Stirrers years.

"Keep Movin' on" is a compilation that ,with a few exceptions, covers the last year of Sam Cooke's recording career. The last album released in his own lifetime, the great "Ain't That Good News" is almost completely covered here; along with rarities, singles and some of his very last recordings from November 1964.

For people who only know Sam Cooke from pop-hits like "Only Sixteen", "A Wonderful World" and "You Send Me", it may sound a little odd that Cooke is often called the creator of soul-music. This wouldn't be the case if they were familar with these late Sam Cooke recordings. "Ain't That Good New" is my favourite Sam Cooke original album; and most best from songs from that album such as "Meet Me at Mary's Place", "Good Times", "The Riddle Song" and the title track are included.

Other highlight are "Shake", "That's Where it's At" ( I believe this song inspired Otis Redding to do "That's How Strong my Love is" ), and the previously unreleased "Keep Moving On"

Fine informative 26 pages booklet included!

Essential listening for fans of early soul-music - and fans of good music in general!

It is obvious that when the "Man Who Invented Soul" box set was conceived, it was hoped that this material would make up its fourth disc. What we got, instead, was a disc combining "Night Beat" and "Live at the Harlem Square Club," which were nice if you didn't already have them... but I did! And of course, it meant that you got a career retrospective of this charter member of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame that didn't include the end of his career! The manager Sam hired to gain him artistic control of his own career, Allen Klein, now owns the masters that make up this disc. It's a shame that he and RCA couldn't find a way to make the complete package happen, but this disc (definitely) has anything else you could want, that is not on the box set.
So give a listen to "Good Times", "Good News", "Shake", and Sam's masterpiece, "A Change Is Gonna Come." The sound quality is excellent. A couple of big treats are "Yeah, Man", the song that so inspired Arthur Conley's "Sweet Soul Music," that Sam was given a writer's credit; and "It's Got The Whole World Shakin'." I went into my first listen to the song (it's never, ever played on the radio despite being a big posthumous hit), expecting to hear some kind of a continuation of "Shake." I couldn't have been more wrong. Sam was known to keep a close eye on the latest trends, and 1964 had been a big year for a certain record company out of Detroit. So if you can imagaine Sam Cooke meets Holland/Dozier/Holland, get this disc and give "It's Got The Whole World Shakin'" a listen. It was the very last song he ever recorded, and it's pretty clear that the "It" Sam is referring to, is The Motown Sound!
