Sam Cooke: Night Beat (LP, 180g Vinyl, Ltd.)

(Ermitage) 12 tracks, limited Edition

Sam Cooke, the inventor and true king of soul, recorded Night Beat in 1963, an album more bluesy and atmospheric than anything we've known from Cooke before. But thanks to his transcendent voice, we are never sad when we listen to this album. Melancholy and nostalgia may surface, but Sam Cooke has an uplifting quality that has never been surpassed.

Night Beat is an album that approaches music at a slow pace, but is never sluggish. It is light on its feet without losing its sharp sensibility. Sam Cooke is delicately framed by his fellow musicians and needs little accompaniment on Lost And Lookin and Trouble Blues, while contributing an honest edge on Little Red Rooster and I Lost Everything.

Had Sam Cooke lived longer, we might have heard more music of this rare quality. As it is, however, we must be content with the treasures he left us.

After Sam Cooke's untimely death in 1964, there was much controversy over the rights to his recordings, resulting in many of the songs from the latter half of his career remaining unreleased or unissued until the mid-1980s and early 1990s. Now, for the first time in 40 years, Music On Vinyl is reissuing one of the artist's most critically acclaimed albums on audiophile 180-gram vinyl.

Sam Cooke

I'll Come Running Back To You

It’s part of R&B legend that Sam Cooke began his recording career singing gospel at Specialty Records, and that in June of 1956, he wrote to company president Art Rupe, saying, "A friend I've been knowing for quite some time asked me if I would consider recording some popular ballads for one of the major recording companies. I told him yes." Cooke's plan was to cut pop records "under another name. And I would continue to record and sing with the group. I have my material ready and all I need is an okay from you." Rupe's answer was swiftly and emphatically negative, but he agreed to let Cooke record some pop material pseudonymously for Specialty. Rupe had made stars of Lloyd Price, Larry Williams and Little Richard, and thought rock 'n' roll was meant to be as tough and unforgiving as gospel. Clearly, Cooke thought otherwise.

Rupe became furious when Cooke and his producer, Bumps Blackwell, hired a white chorus for a session, and things only became worse as Cooke demanded more money. Rupe finally told Blackwell that he could forego some bonuses and take the Sam Cooke tapes. Blackwell agreed, and left with You Send Me. It was, Rupe admits, the worst business decision of his life, and his only recourse was to take a demo tape that Cooke had recorded in April 1957 and overdub it on November 1 with guitarist Rene Hall and the same background singers he’d hated on You Send Me. Together, they approximated the sound of Cooke’s new hit, and it was only apparent in a couple of spots that this was a concocted master.

It was a successful move in that I’ll Come Running Back To You reached #1 on the R&B charts and #18 on the pop charts, but the bad news for Rupe was that the bottom of the barrel was in sight.
