This anthology brings together, for the first time, all of the singles Sam Cooke released between his departure from the Soul Stirrers in 1956 and his rise to international fame as a popular music artist in 1962. Varied in their themes, from the bitterest rhythm n blues track to the schmaltziest ballad, these sixty-three tracks (on thirty-five singles) also reflect the influence on Cooke of gospel music, rock n roll, jazz, blues, pop and country, and paint a vivid portrait of the first six years of his career, two years before his tragic death in 1964. The 72-page booklet contains info on every song, with label artwork.
