Cooke's Tour is the fifth studio album by Sam Cooke. Produced by Hugo & Luigi, the album was released in April 1960 in the United States by RCA Victor.
As Keen's marketing was limited, Sam Cooke began to shop around to other labels in February 1960. Interest was immediate from labels such as Atlantic and Capitol, but Cooke signed with Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore at RCA Victor, who offered a $100,000 advance.
Cooke's Tour, recorded on March 2 and 3, 1960, is an "adventurous travelogue" that explores various territories around the world. Glen Osser wrote arrangements and conducted the album’s orchestra, which was an R&B rhythm section and a fifteen-piece string ensemble.
