Good - except..., 12 Nov 2002
I'm coming at this record from a different angle to most people - I've never heard anything by Solomon Burke before, or listened to much soul music. But I'm a big fan of Tom Waits and Bob Dylan etc., so I thought I'd check it out.
And it's great. Really good. The songs are by and large top-notch, except for Van Morrison's contributions, which is a shame. Also, I found the much-vaunted organ contributions of organist Rudy Copeland annoying.
But that's the bad. The good? Fantastic voice, gorgeous, lush sound (it's a definite headphones record), and definitely worthwhile.
