Solomon Burke: Don't Give Up on Me
Buy! - (Fat Possum)
An all-star cast of songwriters (Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Dan Penn, Nick Lowe and lots more) contributed some first-rate new songs to this legendary soul singer's latest album, which may turn out to be one of the highlights of his storied career. Burke's dramatic, gospel-steeped voice is still mighty strong, and producer Joe Henry gives him a lean sound that puts that powerful voice right up front where it belongs. 7/15/2002 - Don Yates
