Rezension bezieht sich auf: Solomon Burke - Very Best of (Audio CD)
Solomon Burke achieved his most notable successes in the sixties, but his recording career spans more than half a century. In that time, he has recorded for a variety of different labels. One of them was Chess, who are also best remembered for their sixties music. However, by the time Solomon joined Chess, the label was less than a year away from the end of its independent existence. The collection here includes the two albums that Solomon recorded for Chess, one of which was first released after Chess was taken over, and a couple of tracks released as singles. Mostly forgotten now, they have their moments.

Producer Gene Page had worked with Barry White and it shows on several of these tracks. Solomon may lack Barry's growl, but you can hear the influence nevertheless on several tracks, by the way in which he sometimes whispers rather than sings. He wrote many of the songs himself, but includes three covers of some oldies from the Great American Songbook, adapting them to suit his style, notably his disco version of Cole Porter's Night and day.

I see that this collection has aroused mixed feelings. Personally, I don't think it's as bad as some other people do, but it would be fair to say that overall, this is not the best that Solomon Burke has ever recorded. If you haven't got any of his music, the best place to start may be a collection of his sixties music that includes Just out of reach, Cry to me and The price.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Solomon Burke - Very Best of (Audio CD)
Solomon Burke war ein wenig in die Vergessenheit bei mir geraten. Durch dieses Album kamen viele Erinnerungen wieder auf, auch die Erinnerung an ein wunderschönes Livekonzert in den 80iger Jahren. Im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes -Soulmusik- und wie man ihn gerne nannte -the king of rock'n'soul.
