In The Bin [Issue
#23] Solomon Burke Nashville
The rock and roll pioneer surprises fans with an unusual career move: recording
a country album. At 66, Burkes voice shows vulnerability and charisma
on classics such as: the duet with Dolly Parton on Tomorrow Is Forever,
Bruce Springsteens Aint Got You, and Patty Griffins
Up to the Mountain. Aside from Burkes commanding presence, the
authentic country musicianship lets the album soar.
