By far the most complete anthology of Sam Cooke’s career, Portrait of a Legend traces his work from gospel stardom with the Soul Stirrers to the many sides of his secular transformations of all that “soul” could mean. A dizzying stack of beloved pop hits (“You Send Me,” “Chain Gang,” “Another Saturday Night,” “Cupid”) takes its place here, but Portrait also offers the rough-hewn blues translations that Cooke often issued as singles (“Bring It On Home to Me”) as well as, of course, the complex pinnacle of his work. “A Change is Gonna Come” appears in its full version with the “downtown” verse intact; it remains an anthem of struggle and hope whose power has never waned. This set is a must for even casual fans of soul and rock music.
