Tonight, the latest entry in the excellent PBS series American Masters series, Sam Cooke: Crossing Over, debuts. My review of the biography ran today on Popdose:
“Maybe it’s because I’ve read Peter Guralnick’s comprehensive 2005 Sam Cooke biography Dream Boogie: The Triumph of Sam Cooke that the newest entry in the generally wonderful PBS series American Masters, Sam Cooke – Crossing Over, which debuts on PBS tonight, seems a little bit skimpy to me. An hour simply is not enough to tell the story of one of America’s greatest musical lives.”
