Teenage Sonata - Sam Cooke

Here's a sweet mash-up of Sam Cooke Vs. Studio One (The Motown of Jamaica). Released in 2006, "Teenage Sonata" is great listening for soaking up new memories or reflecting on old ones. All rhythm and blues originates from Sam Cooke's angelic, gospel-honed voice. Sam Cooke is to soul music what Buddy Holly is to rock, or Hank Williams is to country. He embodies everything that's honest and pure with roots R&B. An appreciation of Cooke's discography is as relevant as an appreciation of the Beatles library, in my most humble opinion. Enjoy.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, "there never will be another voice like the Sam Cooke".
