HB again, Sam Cooke

On this day in Clarksdale, MI (US), Sam Cooke made his debut. I suspect that his first solo wasn’t quite as pleasant as his many later vocals, but it was probably a sweet sound for his mother. Fine songsmith, wonderful voice, and a lot more.

If he’d lived ’till now, he would have seen the changes that came. It’s been a long time coming, and more needs to come.

I remembered to post notes about his birthday in 2007 and 2008, but I missed 2009.
