Cooke, Sam - Mr. Soul.

Vendor: RCA
Year: 1963


RCA Victor LSP 2673 made in USA in original inner sleeve. Vinyl NM. Cover EX.

Sam Cooke, inventor and true King of Soul, recorded 'Mr. Soul' in the same year as 'Night Beat' (MOVLP163), and seems to be its more adult counterpart, with soulful ballads taking up most of the album. A laidback tempo and rich arrangements lay the foundation over which Sam's somewhat melancholy voice floats, creating an uplifting spirit that can mend anyone's broken heart. 
With standards such as 'Willow Weep For Me', 'I Wish You Love', and "For Sentimental Reasons', Cooke shows a quiet emotive side of himself without losing his keen sense of melody, using the strength of his voice without overpowering the listener. 
Had Sam Cooke lived longer, we might have had more music of this rare quality.
