    Sam Cooke was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi in 1931 to Charles and Annie May Cook. According to biographer Peter Guralnick, Cooke added the "e" to his last name on the advice of his business partner/musical adviser Bumps Blackwell, who thought the extra "E" was classier. Several of Sam Cooke's siblings followed suit, adding the "e" to their names as well. Marvin Gaye also bought the vowel.  Cooke released his first pop single, "Lovable," in 1956. "Lovable" was released under the name "Dale Cooke," as Cooke feared a backlash from Gospel fans who did not look fondly upon Gospel singers recording secular songs. However, Cooke's unique vocal style gave him away, and he was soon dropped by both the Soul Stirrers and their record label, Specialty.  A shrewd businessman, in 1961, Cooke began his own record label, SAR Records. An excellent talent scout, Cooke signed The Valentinos and Johnnie Taylor to SAR. The Valentinos featured Bobby Womack on guitar and vocals. Cooke also formed a music publishing house and management firm.  Several of Cooke's songs were released posthumously, including "Shake," the B-side of which was "A Change Is Gonna Come." Both sides of "Shake"/ "A Change Is Gonna Come" charted. This mix feels like, highlights of a bright career along with a sad ending, As I See It.
