Catalog no.: KR0000007

Item ID: 462395

Compilation of Sam Cooke's great production work for his independent SAR label. SAR Records was founded by Sam Cooke and JW Alexander in 1959 and closed in 1965, shortly after Sam passed away. Nobody knows knows what "SAR" stood for. Sam kept that secret and died with it. Maybe it was "Sam and Alex Records"? They had one employee, Zelda Samuels. She wrote songs, handled all publishing and distribution and ran the office more or less solo. Their office was just two desks and a piano in a tiny room. SAR Records was the kind of small family affair that Stax was in its early years and Motown pretended to be. The label produced both gospel and secular recordings, all with the odd distinction of sounding almost like Sam Cooke. This compilation features gospel side by side with soul and R&B songs. Includes classics by RH Harris, The Simms Twins, The Womack Brothers, The Valentinos, The Soul Stirrers and more. Old school "tip on" cover and a classy black inner sleeve. One time limited pressing.
