Although never a major seller on the pop chart (he never made the Top Twenty during his career), Solomon Burke was still an influential artist at the start of the 1960s. His distinctive vocal, a mix of gospel, pop and country music and some lush productions made him the artist that a lot of others aspired to be; it is no surprise that The Rolling Stones should cover his Cry To Me during their own early days. It is fitting that Solomon spent the best years of his career with Atlantic Records, for his recordings have come to symbolise what the label was all about throughout that particular decade. This particular album was originally released in 1962 and is as fresh and relevant now as it was then.
