Have to agree though I do think he edges over all others.Ive always said if he had recorded the Yellow pages I would still buy it!

Fantastic voice just fantastic even on shmaltzy show tunes.

Of course his essential one to get is

"live at the Harlem Square club" which sat untouched till release in 85 gives an insight to just what a live singer he was.

Totally agree, one of my faves, soul wise not in the same bracket for his time in late 50's as curtis mayfield. In my opinion one of the few creating early soul mixing harmonies and gospel with strings and brass, cookes main output was more 50's & 60's R&B, but a still fantastic voice.

A lot of respect for his political ideals, friends with Malcolm X and Ali.

He was also one of the first black musicians to gain the rights to his own songs . For the first time giving himself artistic independance from the record companies mainly white, he had once recorded for.

He appeared on prime time chat shows, singing his songs, usually coverded and performed by white pop combo's of the day.

In doing so he was changing the american publics veiw of black music.

Like all black music I think the struggle for equality and the passion of these singer song writers, such as cooke, gaye, holiday, etc has given us music that stands the test of time.

One of my fave songs of all time and one of his that is very soulful and still relevant, "A change gonna come", says it all really.
