    'Sam Cooke died 50 years ago this week, an anniversary that is receiving little or no organized fanfare. It’s not that Cooke is entirely forgotten: His 1960 hit “(What A) Wonderful World” – “Don’t know much about history…” – has been streamed more than 15 million times on Spotify, and his reading of his civil-rights anthem “A Change Is Gonna Come” is approaching 10 million streams on the service.

    In 2005, he was the subject of “Dream Boogie: The Triumph of Sam Cooke,” a comprehensive biography by Peter Guralnick, who documented the life of Elvis Presley with similar thoroughness'.....much more at link.
