Double vinyl LP pressing. For the first time on vinyl,? Keep?Movin' On, a 23-song collection that encompasses some of Sam Cooke's best loved and most incisive songs and represents the artist both at the very pinnacle and, tragically, at the very end of his ground breaking career. ?The songs that comprise Keep?Movin' On?were, for the most part, written and produced by Sam Cooke following his successful fight for complete creative?and economic control over his recordings and repertoire. The notion of artistic self-determination was an unheard-of concept for virtually any recording artist, let?alone a young rhythm and blues singer in the early?1960s. Reatures an essay by notable Sam Cooke biographer Peter Guralnick, written expressly for the initial CD release in 2001. Guralnick defines Cooke's recordings sound "as spontaneous, as elegant, as full of mirth, sadness, and surprise as when it first came out of his mouth, translating somehow across the ages in ways that have little to do with calculation or fashion and everything to do with spontaneity of feeling, with a kind of purity of soul.
