4.0 out of 5 stars Almost but not quite 20 May 2007
Solomon Burke is an all time great. Time will show just how great but the real problem with this DVD is that Solomon is in every sense larger than life. His career, the events in his life, his current girth, his humour and most of all his music are super-sized. No-one can tell a story like Solomon but that's the problem.

No one film, especially one like this that isn't actually that long, can convey the sheer size of his achievements and the sheer quality of his voice and music. A film like this needs talking heads because that's the nature of the beast. However, talking heads mean less music and less Solomon talking and that inevitably detracts. If ever there was a story that just needed to be told by the protagonist then this is it.

Don't get me wrong, every fan of the King of Pop and Soul needs to own this and they inevitably will. However, if you're looking for the definitive film documentary then you'll still be waiting at the end. There simply isn't going to be a film big enough to accommodate this man.

Good try though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get to know Solomon Burke 14 Nov 2007
By William E Donoghue - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having seen Solomon Burke twice with the full band, interviewed at EMP, grew up in Burke's backyard in Philadelphia and done church with Al Green at his Full Force Tabernacle in Memphis (where Burke preaches on occasion) I can attest to the reality of these interviews and family stories. To know Burke, preacher, singer and mortician is fascinating. The musical clips are GREAT. You gotta love this guy, the man who invented Northern Soul and the first Soul man.

5.0 out of 5 stars King of the kings 13 July 2008
By Matthias Westerweller - Published on
Wanna meet a true king? All you gotta do is buy this great DVD and take a close look into the life of one of the greatest soul voices ever. Mr. Burke's singing and style can be studied perfectly while watching him in a recording session or on the stage or at home at christmas with his large family. For everyone who's into real S.O.U.L. music this is absolutely a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why isn't he better known? 9 Aug 2008
By Mark S. Crawford - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow! Watch this DVD and see the raw, and yet nurtured talent that belongs to Solomon Burke. It's stylists like Burke who make real music - music with a melody - enjoyable. I'm so sick of modern "artists" who without samples of innovators like Burke, would not even have careers. I never have understood why true, authentic talent like this is not embraced more by the mainstream. In this documentary, he comes across as a smart, savvy, man of the world who also loves God and family. The DVD has many great performance clips that I wish were available in their entirety. This documentary is long over due!
