L.C. Cooke - Sufferin'

I first heard of L.C. Cooke a number of years ago but at the time could find very little information about him. Nowadays, however, that has been rectified. Last week saw the release of The Complete S.A.R. Recordings, SAR being the label run by his older brother, the much better-known Sam Cooke. The similarities between Sam and L.C. as vocal stylists are clear, but L.C. has a quality all his own that makes him well worth listening to.
