Solomons blues side
dpc915 | Ossining, NY United States | 07/10/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"When this CD was released, Solomon Burke had yet to be named into the rock and roll hall of fame, had yet to make his "comeback" album Don't Give up on me....and was mostly concentrating on his various business ventures. All that said, he was in excellent voice. Its more of a blues side for Solomon and although a soulful release, I would not recommend this for casual fans....start with his atlantic greatist hits....or his live album. For the hardcore fans like myself, its a fine album, not his best, but a fine record...especially solomon singing "Candy"....good stuff"
