Soul, Gospel, and Country legend Solomon Burke has been in the news recently as his comeback albums "Don't Give Up On Me", (featuring songs written specifically for the album by Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello and Tom Waits.) and "Nashville" (with guests Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Patty Griffin, Gillian Welch and Patty Loveless.) have been critically acclaimed and very successful. Sell-out touring and TV appearances with the likes of Jon Spencer and Jools Holland have also brought this Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame-er right back into the public eye.
All of which makes Rev-Ola even prouder to present perhaps his best album from his first classic run, "Proud Mary". Featuring the monster hit version of the Creedence Clearwater Revival standard, together with a whole bunch more from the Daddy of soul!
Beautifully remastered and beautifully packaged with detailed notes by Tim Tooher, this is a must have album for everyone! Backed by the famed Muscle Shoals band, and Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, Solomon Burke blisters the paint off the studio walls!
A must for all fans of classic southern soul AND country music; the Muscle Shoals sound has never sounded sweeter!
