A sparkling 21-track collection of Sam Cooke favorites! Includes You Send Me; (I Love You) for Sentimental Reasons; Everybody Loves to Cha Cha Cha; Only Sixteen; Wonderful World; Chain Gang; Cupid; Twistin' the Night Away; Having a Party; Bring It on Home to Me, and more.
Now we have Greatest Hits, a 22-song collection of Cooke's pop hits in addition to the 13-song Best Of collection and the 28-song The Man and His Music. Only The Man comes close to presenting a complete portrait of the legendary soul singer: At least there are examples of Cooke's gospel and R&B material. (Any collection without "A Change is Gonna Come" is an automatic failure.) Cooke's melodious voice and deft songwriting touch are worthy of more than a single-disc compilation. If you want just the pop smashes, the sublime ballads, and infectious mellow grooves, this set will suffice. Otherwise, The Man offers a more comprehensive and well-rounded look at Cooke's legacy. --Marc Greilsamer

There was a PBS program about Sam's life that was excellent. I don't know the name of it, but it was really, really good. This CD is one I can listen to from start to finish on a car drive and not get bored. Very soothing, with a good mix of upbeat and slow songs. Sad songs and happy songs. I wasn't alive during this time, but I love the music, nonetheless.
