Sam Cooke - Ain't That Good News
The 50th-anniversary edition of Cooke's final album and one of his best. It includes the civil rights anthem, "A Change Is Gonna Come," written shortly after Cooke was arrested during a heated argument with a Holiday Inn manager after he and his wife were turned away from the hotel. The first side of the record is described as "strong and rockin'" while the second side contains "ballads....deep and soulful." Only 1800 copies.
