Sam Cooke - Portrait of a Legend 1951-1964

I really wasn't prepared for how beautiful this man sounds and how wonderful the music is; this is sonic perfection and I don't think many artists I'll listen to in the future will comfort me this much. Until the stylistic changes at the midpoint, the thought came to me that this compilation is like "listening to one's favourite song repeatedly for over an hour, but it alters *just* enough to keep one engaged". This is a compliment, honest.

I would pay great money to gain a voice like Sam's! I sound more like a tribute passed-it Elvis Presley or something...
