Sam Cooke's SAR Records Story is a double-disc set presenting material recorded for the legendary soul singer's own SAR label from 1959-1965, much of it produced by Cooke himself and including a few of his rough, unreleased demos. The first disc covers the label's religious side, with a multitude of cuts from Cooke's former group the Soul Stirrers (now with Jimmie Outler on lead vocals), plus a generous helping of songs by R.H. Harris & His Gospel Paraders and the Womack Brothers. The second disc covers essentially the same gospel-derived soul territory but with a secular bent, featuring future stars Bobby Womack (with the Valentinos), Billy Preston, and Johnnie Taylor, plus L.C. Cooke, Johnnie Morisette, the Simms Twins, and Mel Carter. All in all, it's an excellent look at a lesser-known portion of Cooke's career, and there's some great, underappreciated music to boot. ~ Steve Huey

Q (12/94, p.172) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...The arrangements are nimble, the songs lovely, the harmonies finger-clicking and the sole drawback is that almost everyone sounds like Sam Cooke..."

Vibe (2/95, p.93) - "...Sacred/profane ambiguity...animates this 56-song cycle of black artistry, which travels from the apex of '50s gospel...to the commercial expertise of '60s R&B....Cooke's own vocals and production taste convey a mellifluous genius that is still a pop measuring rod..."
