I thought that when I saw this too. Aretha was really good at the start of her career.
I saw Aretha perform at a private birthday party (she did an entire set) in her very last years of performing. She was phenomenal then too.
I want to buy one or the other. Wonder if anyone can vouch for the EU '85 pressing or advise to hold off for a US original?
Sam was in the soundtrack of my junior-senior high school years, but when folk, Dylan, and The Beatles came along I lost track of him. A relatively new friend in my life mentioned how much he liked Sam Cooke so Mr. Cooke has recently returned to the soundtrack of my very senior years. The songs were still in me all those decades later.
Not an expert but Piero Mannucci, the engineer who cut the Italian pressing, is considered one hell of a cutting engineer. A search of the forum for his name should bring up some interesting information.
Let us know which one you decide to buy and if you're happy with it!
If anyone is interested, I found the complete Shake LP in mono from oldschoolmusicjunkie on YouTube. So happy to have A Change is Gonna Come.
Did the channel owner swap the audio out because that track is in stereo. Ditto "Shake."
I asked and he said the way it uploaded came out stereo, but was a mono recording. I’ve heard some really bad recordings and thought that sounded really nice. If anyone has a mono recording of change could they please upload it? Thanks!
Released September 2, Mel Carter's first album, When A Boy Falls In Love, is now available on CD (debut) and LP (reissue).
Carter's album was produced by Sam Cooke and J.W. Alexander, and was originally issued on their Derby Records label in 1963.
CD and digital releases include two bonus tracks ("When A Boy Falls In Love (Single Version)" and "So Wonderful (Single Version)").
Mel Carter - When A Boy Falls In Love
This cracks me up !
Not the Silver Beetles but the Brown Beetles, an all Black R&B group ?!!!!!!
First time I've ever heard such a thing.
That's GREAT !!!!! .
I buy every different Sam Cooke cd I find that's reasonably priced. Always listening for variations and mono/stereo. Just found one with a few songs I hadn't previously had. The Unforgettable Sam Cooke, Canadian pressing cd from 1987 on RCA Special Products at Goodwill for 89 cents. Can't beat that with a stick!
Was that 89 cents Canadian? That would be even better.
Damn near giving them away.
Double edged sword. It's sad that others completely devalue something in their world...but wonderful that I can pick up treasured items for a song that are just throwaways.
US, strong coinage, but cashiers often take Canadian coins because they're so similar in appearance and size.
I asked the owner of a local record store if he had any Sam Cooke-he said that he didn't carry any-his clientele wouldn't buy it. Sad!
Most of the best sam cooke is out of print, but look on-line.
Wow. Very, very sad! Sam Cooke is up there with the best!
Picked up the Gold Standard 45 tonight of Wonderful World / Everybody Loves To Cha Cha Cha.
Longtime Cooke fan. Just randomly ran across the gold standard 45 and for $3 and remembered the series from this thread being highly regarded.
