Sam Cooke - Shake

Hi Al, thanks for doing this. I am a big fan of your work with Sam Cooke & love the sound of the song “Shake” in particular.

I was wondering if you could share any details from that session that you recall (or any sessions with Sam), like what microphone Sam used, how were the drums miked in the room and how did you achieve such a huge reverb sound on Shake?

The energy & the sonic hugeness seem perfectly captured on Shake, it's one of my favorites!

Thanks for your time,
