Sam Cooke says, “a change is gonna come”

“A change is gonna come.” By itself, a great statement, and one that has gotten me through rough times along with faith, but in 1963 Sam Cooke gave these words so much meaning, not just for the civil rights movement but for anyone who would ever find themselves wanting to move forward for whatever reasons or needs. The song and it’s creation is tightly woven with that of two Bob Dylan songs. CLICK HERE to read more

Just a few days after performing at the 2002 Grammy's, Bob Dylan recorded a new re-write of "Gonna Change My Way of Thinking" for "Gotta Serve Somebody: The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan" with longtime friend Mavis Staples. One month later he would kick off a new tour in Stockholm Sweden and perform Solid Rock (what many consider the theme song to his gospel era concerts) for the first time in 20 years. Dylan would continue to perform this rousing song as well as other gospel era songs at numerous concerts across Europe and beyond. The two-time Grammy nominated compilation would be released on Sony/Columbia one year later on April 1, 2003.
