You may find the voice familiar. As smooth as honey, with just the right bit of grit. Here and there, you might think it sounds like Sam Cooke. And you wouldn’t be wrong. It’s his younger brother, L.C., whose first studio album was delayed fifty years. Today, Cooke, at 81, is finally releasing his debut The Complete SAR Records Recordings, done in 1964.
Amazing! Click through to listen to “Put Me Down Easy” with what certainly sounds like both Cooke brothers.
I wish I was a Cooke brother.
