4.0 out of 5 stars The last of the great survivors, 4 April 2007
By 
Mr. I. Macdonald (near enough to Liverpool) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Platinum Collection (International Release) (Audio CD)
Well, I am not one to knock the Mersey Boom, like punk it washed away some very manufactured music, but like all storms it took some good with the bad. The New York Soul scene in '62, '63 was producing some of the finest music ever made, not least in the combination of the Reverend Solomon Burke and the irreverent Bert Berns - who saw the Beatles produce the definitive version of his classic 'Twist and Shout'.

So here it is, the best of a great combination, plenty of it, very reasonably priced. There are many many compilations calling themselves the greatest hits of Solomon, he did fine music after leaving Atlantic, and continues to record with commercial success and critical acclaim to this day. Yet this is the business, he has never overcome the early, tragic loss of Berns. Country, blues, soul, latin, protest, with a tight house band, brilliant arragnements, blaring brass and swirling strings. Part of commendable series of reissues, but hey Atlantic - where's the Platinum Ben E King?

A c/d that will stand the taste of time and I think will never be surpassed, this man has the essence of feeling in his voice , and has never been given his full acclaim in the uk , often imitated but never bettered ,their will be no more like him ,
