Solomon Burke

Last night, my boss gave me Solomon Burke's latest disc, "Don't Give Up On Me". I was familiar with who Burke is but had never listened to him.

But this disc kicks ass! It's all songs written by other people for Burke, exclusively. It reads like a who's who in great song writers too: Van Morrison, Tom Waits, Brian Wilson, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, Nick Lowe, etc. While you can "hear" the songwriter in each tune, Burke definitely makes each own his own.

I highly recommend this.
