VIDEO: Sam Moore

Here are a few old treats we thought you'd enjoy now that Sam Moore is back in the spotlight with his new CD, Overnight Sensational. Even the poor sound quality on the "Hold On, I'm Coming" video can't disguise the magnificence of one of the greatest voices of the 20th century. Enjoy the brilliance that is Sam Moore, even if the new record isn't quite up to his normal lofty levels.
