CD Reviews

Not up to his high standards--and beware, tracks are wrong
J. C Clark | Overland Park, KS United States | 12/07/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The tracks listed here (and on other web sites) are wrong. The 9 tracks on the CD called "king of rock 'n' soul" released by Black Top are:1) Good Rockin' Tonight
2) My Babe
3) Lonesome Highway
4) Letter From My Darling
5) Street Walkin' Woman
6) Everybody Needs Somebody To Love
7) If You Need Me/Tonight's The Night/I Almost Lost My Mind
8) Down In The Valley
9) Got To Get You Off My MindThe tracks listed here are apparently on a CD called Sidewalks, Fences, and Walls, but I don't have it so cannot say for sure.As to this one....when a star starts to believe in himself too much, he thinks he can say or do anything. Maybe live (which the last few tracks are) it worked, but listening to this I get a feeling of a tremendously self-indulgent man who forgot how he got successful. The toying sex-talk is irritating, the arrangements, while very good, are too long, and the stage banter is silly.However, when Solomon is on top, there's no one nearby. My Babe will make you forget any other versions of it you've heard...his sultry voice is made for a song like this. And while I don't love Letter From My Darling, it works pretty well. There is a lot of good material in here, just too little excellent and too much padding. Tighten it up!"
