Product Description

Product Description

Keep Movin on


There's music for Saturday night, and there's music for Sunday morning. The late Sam Cooke made music for both days and, in fact, every day of the week. Cooke was blessed with a fluid, emotionally resonant tone and a graceful, effortless élan, and his legacy has only grown over the years, in spite of his violent death under mysterious circumstances in 1964. Keep Movin' On not only keeps Cooke's flame burning but turns it up a notch, including 23 tracks, 21 of which have not been available to the public for many years. Most songs on this album (many of which were written and produced by Cooke) come from the latter part of his career, and the title track, a finger-popping and soulful stroll, was recorded a month before Cooke's death. Featuring extensive liner notes by noted writer Peter Guralnick, Keep Movin' On features such Cooke classics as "Another Saturday Night" and "A Change Is Gonna Come," along with a hip-swiveling cover of "Tennessee Waltz" and the elated "Yeah Man," whose melody became Arthur Conley's "Sweet Soul Music." In this era of neo-soul, it's often rewarding to go back to the source, and given the wealth of great music for which Cooke's sophisticated passion was a source, this collection is a must. --Amy Linden --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

For years, ABKCO has inexcusably left this material out of print, refusing to release it or even licensing it to the dozens of companies who've approached them; even RCA was turned away when they asked to include the material in their recent box set, "The Man Who Invented Music."
Now, after years of waiting, they've finally released this music on this essential Sam Cooke CD. Legendary cuts like the party anthem "Shake," the popular hit "Another Saturday Night" (the original hit version), and the definitive civil rights anthem "A Change Is Gonna Come" can finally be heard without spending $70+ for the out-of-print and poor-sounding CD "Man and His Music."
Even the lesser known material is great. As Sam Cooke became more popular, he made less concessions to the general public, and by the end of his career, when he made these recordings, he was making some of the best and most influential r&b/soul recordings ever. It's simply impossible to understand Cooke's legacy without hearing this material.
This CD has been digitally remastered in 24-bit resolution from the original master tapes, and sounds much better than anything ever on CD (collector's of vintage vinyl may wish to stick with the original 45's, but this will satisfy less discerning listeners).

This Cd gives you an idea of the kind of thing that Sam Cooke would have been recording had it not been for the tragic night of Dec. 11, 1964 (a little over a week before I was born, in fact). Much of this points to the future direction of Soul Music. "Yeah man" is clearly the original version of Arthur Conley's "Sweet Soul Music." "Ease My Troubled Mind" could be seen either as a metaphor for Sam's personal problems at the time (his son had just died) or that of the Civil Rights Movement. "It's Got the Whole World Shaking" is one of Sam's lesser-known, but not lesser tunes.
"The Riddle Song" usually brings guffaws to most modern listeners because of the classic comedy scene in "Animal House" that involves this song (where John Belushi smashes the guitar of a terrible sounding folksinger who warbles the tune), but Sam's moving rendition brings the tune back to it's original dignity.
"A Change Is Gonna Come" needs no further elaboration from me, but "Keep Moving On" sounds almost like a sequel to "Change," somewhat of a less elaborate hymn to positive thinking. I strongly recommend that you play this song before you go to work or school, it will really put you in a good frame of mind to face adversity. One can only wonder why it was never publicly released after it was recorded in 1963. But in either case, listen and enjoy.

Legal and personal problems (not the least of which was the sudden drowning death of his infant son) kept Sam Cooke out of the recording studio for the bulk of 1963. When he finally returned there near year's end, he did so with a vengeance: A goldmine of new--and very strong--original songs, along with a handful of covers done his own way for good measure. It is those recording sessions conducted over the final year of Sam's life which comprise 90% of this outstanding--and phenomenal-sounding cd.
With the exception of gospel, pretty much the full gamut of Cooke's stylistic reservoir is tapped in this collection. If, for instance, dancing's your thing, "Shake," Good Times," "It's Got The Whole World Shakin'" and "Yeah Man," among others, will take care of you. (Note: The latter of those would later serve as an obvious musical and melodic springboard for Arthur Conley's classic "Sweet Soul Music.") If you want good soul-driven blues, "There'll Be No Second Time" and "Somebody Ease My Troubled Mind" will do you. There are tender ballads ("When A Boy Falls In Love"), and New Orleans-flavored r&b ("Cousin Of Mine" and "Basin Street Blues.") There are also two songs in this collection which were herebefore unreleased, the title track, and "I'm Just A Country Boy." The underrated Cooke original "Rome Wasn't Built In A Day" is one of my favorite cuts: Sounds to me like one which could have been issued as a single and had some chart success. And of course, I'd be remissed if I didn't mention Sam's greatest artistic achievement: "A Change Is Gonna Come.
