Gold Disc Edition
Ain\'t That Good News was the final album to be issued during Cooke\'s lifetime, before his death at the age of 33. With the exception of "Another Saturday Night", which had been released as a single early in the previous year.
The album is most memorable for Cooke\'s most well-known and signature song "A Change Is Gonna Come". The song came to exemplify the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. The song has gained in popularity and critical acclaim in the decades since its release, and is #12 on Rolling Stone\'s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Ultimately the song came to signify Barack Obama\'s presidential inspirations.
By the time of its release, five of the tracks on Ain\'t That Good News had already or would later be released as singles.
