Now on vinyl as a 4LP set!

Originally released by ABKCO as a 2CD set in 1994, Sam Cooke's SAR Records Story 1959-1965 is now available on vinyl as a 4LP set.

The set presents material recorded for the legendary soul singer's own SAR label from 1959-1965, much of it produced by Cooke himself and including a few of his rough, unreleased demos. Cooke cofounded and produced the majority of these records and was instrumental in the label's operation. Groundbreaking artists such as The Sour Stirrers, Johnnie Taylor, Billy Preston and Bobby Womack's group, The Valentinos, are all featured — in addition to Sam himself.

All in all, it's an excellent look at a lesser-known portion of Cooke's career, and there's some great, underappreciated music to boot.
