Ain't That Good News is the thirteenth and final studio album by American R&B
and soul singer-songwriter Sam Cooke, released March 1, 1964, on RCA Victor
Records. Recording sessions for the album took place at RCA Victor's Music
Center of the World Studio in February and December 1963 and January 1964. The
cover photo was taken by American photographer Wallace Seawell.
Ain't That Good News was the last studio album released in Sam Cooke's lifetime.
It features his iconic recording "A Change Is Gonna Come," which has become an
anthem for civil rights plus the hit songs "Another Saturday Night," "Ain't That
Good News" and "Rome (Wasn't Built In A Day)."
In this LP are two sides of Sam Cooke. The first side, strong and rockin'; the
second side, ballads...deep and soulful.
"...offers a lot of superb material...The central number is, of course, the
earth-shattering "A Change Is Gonna Come," with its soaring gospel sound and the
most elaborate production of any song in Cooke's output." -Bruce Eder,
