    Sam Cooke/Soul Stirrers Concert Poster (circa 1956). Window card tour blank printed on card stock for a show on Fri. Jan. 13 in Tulsa, OK. "In Concert the nationally known Soul Stirrers and The Famous Caravans". The poster shows photos of each group including Sam Cooke as a member of the Soul Stirrers. Printed by "Majestic Poster Press...W. Washington". Measures 14" x 22". In Very Good condition. One 1.5" x 1.5" loss to lower left corner, two 1" scratches to back of poster, one affecting the 3rd "R" in Stirrers, some staining to back, not affecting image, general toning.

    Sam Cook (he added the "e" to his name later) joined the gospel group the Soul Stirrers in 1951, aged 20, as a replacement for Rebert Harris. His voice and looks ensured he became the star of the group. In 1956 he decided that he wanted to move in another direction musically, and start recording pop songs. Though he was still contracted to the Stirrers' label Speciality Records, the owner, Art Rupe did not like the singer's new sound and eventually allowed Cook to leave, which, of course he came to regret! Cooke's (now with new spelling) first single "You Send Me" was released in September 1957 and went to number one both on the R & B and Billboard charts.
