Rating 5.0 The man who invented Soul! Movie Lover: from BRONX, NY US -- November, 29, 2014

Sam Cooke is a legend! So many singers were influenced by him ! When he died in the mid sixties, the world was in shock! Most record critics claim that Sam never made a bad record and this is true! A pivotal part of television history occurred when Sam was on the Ed Sullivan show for the first time back in 1957 and time was not allowed for Sam to sing! The American public went berserk and forced Ed Sullivan to bring back Sam for the following week! Sam came back and sang "You Send Me" and the rest is history! Sam Cooke is an immortal and this DVD proves it!
