Now, this is a Sam Cooke cover I can get behind.
This Adam Arcuragi fellow is doing it right with “Bring It On Home To Me.” Recorded in a chapel and available for download over at
Also, please revisit these excellent covers of
Sam Cooke tunes.

A Change is Gonna Come (Cover Battle).
Aloe Blacc, vs. Seth Avett, vs. (…throwback!) Gavin Degraw
He probably wins in the closest-to-the-real-deal department, and best falsetto.
Seth made this video to promote his piano, which he was auctioning off to benefit abused women and children. So, winning.
There isn’t a high quality live version of this, but he is pretty undeniable. I wonder what he is up to these days.
Who do you like?

Seeing the Avetts tonight in Tuscaloosa.
The first time I’ve seen them play anywhere but Chicago. So excited and just jamming out to them and reading my book until it is time to go! It’s been a long time comin’…

Scott Avett of the Avett Brothers - Time Out Chicago
Onstage, that nervy energy remains hard to shake, however. “I still come out wanting to sing like Sam Cooke,” Avett says with a laugh. “The next thing you know, I’m gargling blood, screaming over a banjo.”
But that’s how we like it.
