Background: Encore, released in 1958, was Sam Cooke’s second LP.  The album was released only in mono and it did not reach the charts. gave Encore a 3 star review:

Superb vocals by the great Sam Cooke, with some sophisticated pop, wonderful ballads, and a few intense wailers that recall his great gospel material. This, and almost every other magnificent release by Sam Cooke from the ’50s and early ’60s, has been out of print for years.
