Cook, R & B artist and younger brother of Sam Cooke made the transition July 21st.  L.C. was the fifth of ten kids, and they originally spelled their last name “Cook.”  When L.C. and Sam pursured their recording careers, they added the “E” for what reason, I don’t know.  L.C. recorded on his brother’s Sam SAR Label and released singles including “The Wobble,” and Put Me Down Easy. “  When Sam made the transition in 1964, L.C. toured with the Upsetters  , the back up band for Little Richard.  ABKCO Records released recently, L.C. Cooke: The Complete SAR Recording, which was L.C.’s first full length Album.  Our condolences to out to the family of L.C. Cooke…….
