Solomon Burke

Solomon Burke is proof positive that you don't need hit records to be a major influence in the history of music. Loved by Soul aficionados and musicians alike, his music has persevered over the years, and his '60s recordings are now revered as some of the most potent music of the era. His voice could swoon like a subdued gentleman, then suddenly burst out with such passion and intensity that it would make your skin crawl. He had a delivery similar to Otis Redding, but his voice went in different directions at just the right moments. If ever a man was possessed by the power of Gospel music, it was Solomon Burke. When he tells you "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free," he's giving you more sincerity and honesty than you'd get in a month of Sunday School sessions. Catch him if you can, for he's still making records quietly.
