Yes folks you read that title correctly, I am writing about a Sam Cooke record. But before I get to the song, I’ll explain where it came from. As you know I’m all about power to the people, so this week’s throwback track comes from my good friend Tank aka Adam, aka Bean, aka Bruce, aka Goldstein, aka mighty meat. And those are some of the nicer things people have called him over the years.
So, Sam Cooke. Born on 22nd January 1931 he was a pioneer of soul, and you can see his influence all over the likes of Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Bill Withers and so on. This track appeared on the last album he released during his lifetime ‘Aint That Good News’ which was released in 1964.
And it really is that good, so sit back and enjoy.
