SAM COOKE  "hits!" cd,  2009:

sorry, no cover art work so I thought a pic of Mr Cooke would do....
twenty one tracks, all singles...
they didn't call him "mr.soul" for nothing, he had the groove baby!....
superb r+b vocalist, great entertainer but not a nice person in real life, and
his bizarre death is one of the enduring mysteries of the rock era...
love just about every track on this set and the ones I don't love are pretty darn good also...

I had to pick a track to post and this one came out randomly:

RUN DMC  "its like this: the best of" cd,  2009:

double disc, thirty six tracks....
could have been whittled down to a single disc IMO...
anyway,
this is original rap from the 1980s/90s...
before all the foul mouthed gangsters destroyed the genre...
in thirty six tracks there is not one ho/niggaz/blunts/b!tches etc etc...
a breath of fresh air even if they all sound the same...
best track for me is the collaboration with Aerosmith....
