Solomon Burke Make Do with What You Got

No one could possibly have more soul than Solomon Burke. Whether saving souls as a bishop for the LA congregation of the House of God for All People or tending to his 21 children or belting out soul on his Grammy award-winning Don’t Give up on Me, Solomon Burke has been shaking demons out of music lovers since the ’60s. He now returns with Make Do with What You Got, a powerhouse record that showcases Burke’s incredible voice and the deep heart behind it. Taking a more traditional approach to making a soul and R&B record, Burke opens up and unleashes the full capacity of his powerful voice and his commanding presence on tracks such as "I Need Your Love in My Life” and "After All These Years.” Burke even revitalises a few cuts like Dylan’s "What Good Am I?” and Robbie Robertson’s "It Makes No Difference,” while showing the Stones how to sing the blues on the Jagger/Richards penned "I Got the Blues.” Backed by a smoking rhythm section and a fire breathing pipe-organ, Burke rocks, rolls, and saves a few souls on this record. If you have any questions about what soul singing should sound like, Make Do with What You Got is tangible proof of the depths of Solomon Burke’s soul and the power behind this living legend. (Shout!
