  • Burke Solomon - King Of Rock `n` Soul: Atlantic Recordings 1962-1968 (3CD) (CD)

    37,50

    Great three CD set that celebrates the recordings that Solomon Burke made for the legendary Atlantic Records label between 1960 and 1968.

    Solomon is generally acknowledged as one of the greatest soul singers to emerge during the genre’s golden days. He signed to Atlantic before ’soul music’ became a bona fide sub-genre of African-American music and it was Solomon who helped define this new movement and he was, in fact, one of the first artists to use ’soul’ to describe his music. He would eventually be known the world over as ’The King of Rock and Soul’.

    His Atlantic recordings are presented in chronological order of recording across the three discs and each session is identified by date, location and all the musicians present are identified (where known).

    This celebratory definitive collection includes the content of all six of the LPs released during Solomon’s tenure with Atlantic plus all non-album tracks for a total of 79 soulful cuts.

  • Burke Solomon - If You Need Me (180 gram) (LP)

    23,00

    • Rousing, romantic and confident at the same time, Solomon Burke brought a country influence into rhythm and blues, with emotional phrasing and intricately constructed, melodic ballads and mid-tempo songs. Burke’s versatile, force-of-nature voice combined gospel fervor, country gentility and R&B grit. He could swing from a satiny croon to a gruff soul shout to a deep, caressing baritone. Burke was also surrounded with sophisticated “uptown” arrangements and was provided with much of his material by his producers. The combination of gospel, blues, country, and production polish was basic to the recipe of early soul. He preached, moaned and shouted, with horns and choirs wrapped around his golden voice, and when you hear him, you know he’s telling you the truth.

    • This essential LP edition includes one of Solomon Burke’s finest albums, the splendid If You Need Me. Originally released by Atlantic Records, and long unavailable on vinyl, this long play contains 12 songs recorded between 1959 and 1962. It is named for the opening cut, Solomon’s take on Wilson Pickett’s “If You Need Me,” which was a successful single for Burke, who sent the song to number two on the R&B charts. These mostly mid-tempo songs find Burke’s gritty pleas at home in sultry, bluesy surroundings (“Send Me Some Loving”) and sweetened up for the occasional exoticatinged arrangement (“Tonight My Heart She Is Crying”).

    • This is the material upon which Solomon Burke’s legend was built. It is enduring music and the epitome of southern soul up north.

    irst recordings by the soul legend that set the style for the emergence of soul music!

    Not available for over 20 years, first time on CD Solomon Burke, a legend of the classic soul era with some 20 chart hits on Atlantic between 1961 and 1968 and his landmark Proud Mary LP (available now on Rev-Ola CRREV 187) cut in Muscle Shoals for Bell in 1969, began his musical life in the world of gospel as a boy preacher in his home city of Philadelphia, featuring in his own Solomon s Temple radio show.

    He was signed to Bess Berman s Apollo Records in New York s Harlem as a teenager in 1955, and recorded sessions in New York from 1955 to 1957, from which his singles released on the label comprise the contents of this album. Given his church roots, some tracks have an inspirational theme, but far from being a gospel album, the music is more notable in displaying the birth of soul music, with Solomon s vocal delivery close to the style of his future Atlantic hits.

  • Burke Solomon - Nashville (CD)

    9,00

    ”Four years after the stellar and eclectic Don’t Give Up on Me from 2002, which won a Grammy, Solomon Burke returns with another surprise. Nashville was recorded in Music City with producer Buddy Miller and a slew of guests who include duet partners Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Patty Griffin, and Gillian Welch, as well instrumental talent that features Brady Blade, Byron House, Miller, Al Perkins, Garry Tallent, Mickey Raphael, David Rawlings, Sam Bush, Phil Madeira, and many others. The set opens with a stripped to the bone version of Tom T. Hall’s ”That’s How I Got to Memphis,” accompanied only by Miller’s acoustic guitar. Burke’s big, crackling throaty baritone makes the song, which has been covered by everyone from Bobby Bare, Bill Haley, and Rosanne Cash to Scott Walker, Lee Hazlewood, and Ben Vaughn. Miller lets the slow, earthy cracks in Burke’s voice resonate deeply. The duet with Parton on her ”Tomorrow Is Forever” is deep, soulful country music at its best. Al Perkins’ pedal steel floats around the pair as they trade lines and harmonize. With excellent backing vocals from Ann McCrary and Gale West, this is a true melding of the country and soul traditions. Bruce Springsteen’s ”Ain’t Got You” is utterly transformed from a country blues shouter into a roiling, tough, backwoods hard country and near-bluegrass meld. Perkins’ dobro, the slippery brushed drums that shuffle in overdrive and fiddle, and Tallent’s standup bass take the thing back into the woods and never let it out. And it just goes from here. Welch’s ”Valley of Tears” is another stripped to the bone ballad with Rawlings and Welch singing and playing and Miller backing on vocals as well. But that backing is a bit stiff; it would have worked better without any, but it’s Burke’s killer voice that brings the real sadness in the tune to bear at the listener’s door. Burke can really do the weepers, as further evidenced by his reading of Don Williams’ ”Atta Way to Go” with strings and a full countrypolitan band behind him. Here again, Burke proves that he can do the tradition without schmaltz. There is great power in his voice as he allows the lyrics to penetrate him and then projects them as his own. This song, too, becomes so rooted in the blues and Memphis soul that it might shock Williams to hear it. ”Up the Mountain” a Griffin song, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Griffin and Burke were made to sing together. This is a duets record that should happen. She can sing anything, and her manner of countering Burke’s throaty R&B moan brings out the depths of gospel. The pairing with Harris on George Jones’ ”We’re Gonna Hold On” works less well. Harris does the same thing on every single recording she’s appeared on for the last decade. In addition, the instrumentation feels ragged and out of balance. The set ends with Larry Henley and Red Lane’s ”Til I Get It Right,” where Burke’s vocal comes off every bit as haunted and heart-rending as Johnny Cash’s and he gets it right form the first note. Burke is at a place in his long career where he has nothing to lose. His restlessness and willingness to stretch himself is far different than say Rod Stewart attempting all those horrifying volumes of the Great American songbook. Burke fully inhabits what he sings. His performances are precise in that they bring out every single lyrical nuance as an extension of soul. This is a keeper, one of those records that you’ll still be listening to in ten years”
