Make Do With What You Got

CD (Item 581593) Shout Factory, 2005 — Condition: Used

A nice set from the recent comeback years of Solomon Burke – a record that has him taking on tunes from Dylan, The Rolling Stones, and Van Morrison – plus other bits from more soul-based sources! The material's recorded with a heavy emphasis on roots, but produced with a partly mainstream finish by Don Was – a sound that's very respectful of Solomon's vocals, which are great, but which has a bit of a crossover approach at times too. Titles include "What Good Am I", "At The Crossroads", "I Got The Blues", "Wealth Won't Save Your Soul", "Make Do With What You Got", "After All These Years", and "Fading Footsteps".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Rev-Ola (UK), Early 50s. Used
Hard-wailing work from the legendary Johnny Otis – and an overstuffed collection of his early 50s recordings for the Mercury and Peacock labels! These sides aren't reissued as often as some of Johnny's other work – especially his Savoy and Capitol recordings – so the CD's a bit ... CD
