Dream Boogie : The Triumph of Sam Cooke

If you don’t know Sam Cooke, you are not nearly as hip as you think you are. Read this book and get some insight into how the man came to become the legend. You can’t really appreciate the book, however, without the right soundtrack:

Live at the Harlem Square Club
Portrait of a Legend

And this is unrelated, but worth your investment as well. Go see the movie too.

My mind is an endless cultural lint trap.
