love Sam Cooke and this track is his most moving
Bill Frisell did a nice version too. https://www.fretboardjourna...
Sam has been a huge influence on many, many singers. Both Rod Stewart and Steve Perry of Journey have phrasing straight oughtta Cooke-ing school. Sam was also a good friend of Lou Rawls --- another master singer of huge influence!
I think Lou Rawls was the 'yeah' response/other guy on Bring it Home To Me
Sam was one of the best ever, and most soulful ever, crooners of the 50s. What a beautiful voice and such absolute classic songs..."You Send Me", "Win Your Love", "Chain Gang", "Only Sixteen".
