Sam Cooke

Things I resent, part 1,000,000. Children of the 50s got to listen to Sam Cooke originals in all their gritty, gravelly glory. As a child of the 70s, I was stuck with covers by wispy white folkies. Unfair! (Exception: The Spinners’ disco cover of “Cupid,” which was awesome.)

  1. Thank you Joe for bringing back some cherished memories! The first time I heard “ A Change is Gonna Come” I knew instantly that I had to listening to the whole Sam Cooke collection and I was never disappointed. He is the only permanent fixture in my ever changing list of favourite artists.
