Saturday Night Music Pick #2

Sam Cooke performance in Miami about 50 years ago--one of the greatest live vocal performances in history of rock and soul (re-enacted at the start of the Will Smith Ali film).  Listen for the..."listen to this" and "I want you to listen to this" and  "now listen, this part is important"--borrowed by Bill Clinton for his famous 2012 Dem Convention speech backing Obama?   (Note:  Sam here was still not as great as some of his Soul Stirrers gospel recordings, such as this epic live track.)

That's pretty awesome, have to admit that it's even better than One Night Stand: Live at the Harlem Square Club.
