Sam Cooke [R.I.P.] - Discography

Sam Cooke

Born: January 22, 1931 - Died: December 11, 1964

Samuel Cook (January 22, 1931 – December 11, 1964), known professionally as Sam Cooke, was an American singer, songwriter, civil-rights activist and entrepreneur.

Influential as both a singer and composer, he is commonly known as the King of Soul for his distinctive vocals and importance within popular music. He began singing as a child and joined the Soul Stirrers before moving to a solo career where he scored a string of hit songs like "You Send Me", "A Change Is Gonna Come", "Wonderful World", "Chain Gang", "Twistin' the Night Away", and "Bring it on Home to Me".

On December 11, 1964, at the age of 33, Cooke was shot and killed by Bertha Franklin, the manager of the Hacienda Motel in Los Angeles, California.[8] After an inquest, the courts ruled Cooke's death to be a justifiable homicide. Since that time, the circumstances of his death have been called into question by Cooke's family.

I am 76 years old and have lived music for most of that time !!

I have seen /heard many live acts over those years but the most

thrilling and impressive voice live was most certainly Sam Cooke.

Bristol Hippidrome during the 1960s. Magnificent artist.

Hi there stringbasepete
I am a few years older than you and totally agree about Sam Cooke, he was a brilliant artist.

I hope that you are enjoying my blog.

Hi Ozzieguy. Thanks again for all the wonderful music you share with the world. The world needs it now more than ever. I love Sam Cooke, but I'm a little frustrated by the fact that nearly all the albums of Sam's that you share have a restriction placed on them that prohibits downloading. Am I doing something wrong? It's never a problem with your Mega downloads. Thanks, and...

All good wishes,

Hi iggy
No, you would not be doing anything wrong. Where the albums are right now at mediafire, they block everything so I need to place them all onto Mega.
Thanks for letting me know.

Very best wishes,
