• Sam COOKE - Cupid - the Very Best of Sam Cooke 1961-1962

By far the most important and influential Gospel and secular R&B singer of his era, honey-voiced Sam Cooke is universally acknowledged as 'The man who invented Soul.'

This compilation presents all eight singles plus the standout tracks from his five LPs issued during 1961-62, a period during which Cooke was particularly prolific, and hit his first creative peak.

It is the follow-up to an earlier Jasmine compilation, Wonderful World (JASCD 152), which traced Cooke's career from 1957-60.

Includes a number of his biggest, career-defining hits, notably 'That's It - I Quit - I'm Moving On', 'Cupid', 'Twistin' The Night Away', 'Bring It On Home To Me', 'Havin' A Party', 'Nothing Can Change This Love', 'Somebody Have Mercy' and 'Send Me Some Lovin''.

Also includes his rarest-ever 45rpm release, 'Just For You'/'Made For Me'; both sides are hard to find elsewhere on CD.
