“Someone picked out a warm Miami date in early 1963: Jan. 12 at the Harlem Square Club. It was a small downtown nightspot, and that evening it was packed with some of the singer’s most devoted fans from his gospel days. The result was loud, raw, artful and raucous — but it wasn’t the Sam Cooke the label was looking to sell to mainstream audiences. RCA decided to tuck the Harlem Square Club recording into its archives. Cut to 1985, when a record executive named Gregg Geller discovered those recordings and quickly released Live at the Harlem Square Club, 1963. It’s now considered one of the greatest live albums ever recorded, though Geller says he understands what gave his predecessors pause.” http://www.npr.org/2013/01/12/169136464/a-night-o
