    Sam Cooke LP Group of 5 (1958-62). A vital member of Rock and Roll's inaugural Class of '86, Sam Cooke may not have invented "Soul", but he defined and refined the term, setting the standard in the '50s for those to follow. Handsome and with a distinctive voice, Cooke was also a prolific songwriter, with songs covered by such wide-ranging artists as Johnny Rivers, the Animals, Herman's Hermits, Dr. Hook, Rod Stewart, and Art Garfunkel - all the more impressive because his body of hit recordings essentially came from the short period 1957-65. Included: Songs by Sam Cooke (Keen 2001, 1958) in EX 7/ NM 8; Hit Kit (Keen 86101, 1959) in EX 7/ NM 8; Hits of the '50s (RCA 2236, 1960) in EX 7 (some writing on cover)/ NM 8; Sam Cooke (RCA 2293, 1961) in EX 7/ EX 7; and The Best of Sam Cooke (RCA 2625 Living Stereo, 1962) in EX 7/ EX 7.
