More Bobby Womack and Sam Cooke

  As promised, here's disc two of Bobby Womack and Sam Cooke.  Another thing about them that I like that I didn't mention last week is there respective affection for country music.  So, of course, I had to feature a country music cover from each of them.  I think I take Sam's Tennessee Waltz over Bobby's Point of No Return, but ymmv.  Oh, and I also didn't mention last week how good the SAR Records set is - a ton of great gospel and soul from Sam Cooke's label including, but not limited to, Bobby and Sam.

I think Womack's a much underrated soul singer. My Favourites of his are Poet 1 and II. And he's the best in the business!

He's definitely an underrated singer (and songwriter). I prefer his late 60s stuff to the Poet albums, but I really need to go back and give them another try.
