    Sam Cooke EP Group of 4 (1957-60). Here's a fine sampling of the range and power of one of the most distinctive voices in Gospel/R&B/Rock/Pop history. Sam Cooke was all of these and demonstrates it on these selections. "Songs By Sam Cooke - Vol. 2" (Keen 2002) showcases his first and greatest Pop hit "You Send Me," and also includes "The Lonesome Road," "That Lucky Old Sun," and "Canadian Sunset." On the two volume "A Tribute To The Lady" (Keen 2013 and 2014), Cooke covers Billie Holiday in extraordinary fashion, but then why would that be a surprise -- the silky smooth singer practically defined what a Soul singer was, greatly influencing the likes of Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, and countless others. But the real treasure here might just be the 1960 release (SAR 105) of a live church performance of the early 1950s Gospel group, the Soul Stirrers, with whom the youthful Cooke honed his skills from 1950-56 before his hugely successful secular career. Condition of the four EPs: EX 7/ MT 9; VG-EX 6/ MT 9; VG-EX 6/ GM-MT 10; and EX 7/ NM 8 respectively. From the GRT Collection
