Recorded July 7th and 8th, 1964, this is quite simply one of the finest soul performances ever captured on tape. Cooke’s golden croon is as versatile and nuanced an instrument as any saxophone or guitar, careening through rapid scalar passages, mournful cries and delicate vibrato. The recording, available for the first time in high res 88.2kHz/24bit, is absolutely astounding - every horn is audible, every drum hit startlingly crisp. This is less a record than it is a supremely recorded all-encompassing experience. An absolutely essential addition to any audiophile collection (or music collection in general), Sam Cooke at the Copa is a document of one of the greatest soul vocalists of all time delivering a once-in-a-lifetime performance.
