Doxy presents a reissue of Sam Cooke's 1959 singles compilation Hit Kit. For a collection of singles and odds and ends, this album does such a superb job of presenting some of Cooke's non-album material from his early years that its coherence gives it the impression of being a genuine, full-length album of songs recorded to go together. The sequencing of songs is ideal -- from shuffling mid-tempo doo-wop soul to up-tempo calypso soul and slow balladry (Cooke's musical trademark at this point). An excellent example of the man's music in its earliest years as a pop/soul vocal powerhouse!
