Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Way more than just a greatest hits collection – as the record is one of the few albums from Solomon's years that you can ever find on vinyl, and it's a stellar collection of hard and deep soul tracks that no collection should be without!

Titles include "Words", "Cry To Me", "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love", "Got To Get You Off My Mind", "The Price", "Down In The Valley", "If You Need Me", "Just Out Of Reach", and "Home In Your Heart".

Solomon BurkeHome In Your Heart – Best Of Solomon Burke ... CD CD format
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $12.99
Genius – pure genius! Solomon Burke is one of those soul singers you always hear folks about, but who you never seem to get to hear as much as folks like Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett, or any of his other label-mates on Atlantic. This excellent 2CD set will correct that problem – as it brings together 41 tracks from Solomon's glory days at Atlantic, and the selection of material is fantastic all the way through. Solomon's voice is indescribably majestic – soaring over the top of the tightly-woven arrangements that were some of Atlantic's first real forays into soul music. The set does a good job of showing the full range of his talents during the 60s – and it moves way past the few hits he had, which always seem to get repeated endlessly when anyone brings up his name. Tracks include "Save It", "Get Out Of My Life Woman", "Detroit City", "Take Me (Just As I Am)", "When She Touches Me (Nothing Else Matters)", "Looking For My Baby", "I'm Hanging Up My Heart For You", "Cry To Me", "If You Need Me", "The Price", "You're Good For Me", "Words", "It's Been A Change", "Time Is A Thief", "Stupidity", and "Woman, How Do You Make Me Love You Like I Do".

Solomon BurkeI Wish I Knew (Japanese pressing) ... CD CD format
Atlantic (Japan), 1968. Used ... $9.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Solomon Burke – a great little set that draws on all of his deep soul roots for Atlantic, but also gets a little bit funky too! There's a growing maturity in Solomon's music here that we really love – a quality that gets past the churchy cliches, and starts to explore some of the new territory opening up to soul artists at the end of the 60s – influences from all points south, wrapped up in a slightly tighter New York presentation. Titles include Solomon's great version of the hard break classic "Get Out Of My Life, Woman", an amazing remake of "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", and the tracks "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free", "Meet Me In Church", "Since I Met You Baby", "Shame On Me", "Why Why Why", and "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye".

Solomon BurkeKing Of Rock N Soul (aka Rock 'N Soul) ... LP LP format
Atlantic, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Genius work from Solomon Burke – the kind of all-out, no-nonsense soul album that made Atlantic Records one of the strongest forces in the genre during the 60s! If you've ever bought one of Solomon's weaker recent albums, you owe it to yourself to check this one out – as it's a brilliant batch of tunes, 12 in all, with not a dud in the lot! The vocals are incredible, production is sublime, and the style is a teetering blend of country, gospel, R&B, and soul – never duplicated so well again on wax. Titles include "Can't Nobody Love You", "Goodbye Baby", "Cry To Me", "If You Need Me", "Just Out Of Reach", "You're Good For Me", "Someone To Love Me", and the incredible "He'll Have To Go".

Solomon BurkeProud Mary – The Bell Sessions ... CD CD format
Bell/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Solomon's most famously known for his Atlantic recordings of the 60s – but immediately after working for that label, when his soul vibe was still quite strong, Solomon cut some great little sides for the Bell label in Muscle Shoals. The approach used was actually a bit rootsier than that on some of Solomon's Atlantic sides, and production on most of the cuts is by Solomon and Tamiko Jones. This CD brings together cuts from Solomon's one LP on Bell, plus 6 bonus cuts that feature him singing some pretty interesting material – done in that style he used in late Atlantic years that made even suspicious cuts sound pretty darn nice! Much of the material is cover versions of tracks – but apart from the hard-to-hear "Proud Mary" (a track that always seems a bit tired from the perspective of this generation), there's lots of nice numbers that bring out this style, like "In The Ghetto", "Change Is Gonna Come", "Uptight Good Woman", "What Am I Living For", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "These Arms Of Mine", "Don't Wait Too Long", and "That Lucky Old Sun". 17 tracks in all.

Solomon BurkeSolomon Burke's Greatest Hits ... CD CD format
Hallmark/Pickwick (UK), 1962. Used ... $4.99
Way more than just a greatest hits album from Solomon Burke – as the set's the only album appearance of most of his key early singles – making the whole thing pack the same punch as his other full-length records for Atlantic! Plus, given that although Burke's music was great, it never got the same radio play as some of his bigger contemporaries – these aren't really hits, so much as seminal 60s soul tunes that went onto form the blueprint for countless other acts to come – both in the north and the south! Burke really draws on his deep gospel roots here – and knocks it out of the park with every number – killer material that we'd take any day against even a pile of his albums from later years. Every track's a winner – and titles include "Down In The Valley", "Cry To Me", "Just Out Of Reach", "Keep The Magic Working", "Looking For My Baby", "How Many Times", "Baby", and "Be Bop Grandma".

Millie JacksonLoving Arms – The Soul Country Collection ... CD CD format
Kent (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99
Classic country soul from Millie Jackson – plus a brand new song as well – all served up in a set that shows yet another side of this legendary singer! Millie's known both for her weepy sad songs of the early years, and her bitchy blues of later ones – but during the 70s, she also cut a fair bit of country-tinged tunes as well – done in a similar space as other southern soul singers like Joe Tex, Solomon Burke, or Joe Simon! The styles vary nicely, though – not just the straight blend of country roots and soulful inflections you'd hear in the 60s – as some of the tracks are from later years, and bring in some modern soul to the mix – nicely expanding the sound. A few titles are duets with Isaac Hayes – and titles include "Angel In Your Arms", "Rose Colored Glasses", "Sweet Music Man", "Cheatin Is", "You Needed Me", "Pick Me Up On Your Way Down", and "Standing In Your Line" – plus the brand new track "Black Bitch Crazy".

New Jackie WilsonBaby Workout (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $19.99
A hard soul groove from the great Jackie Wilson – and a record that really has the singer coming into his own! The music is tight, upbeat, and mighty rocking right from the start – and Wilson takes off with these tremendous vocals that are undeniably some of the greatest in early soul music – very much on a par with the best from Clyde McPhatter or Solomon Burke! And unlike some of Wilson's other albums of the time, there's almost no pop or ballad material at all – just great groovers like "Baby Workout", "You Only Live Once", "Cute Little Girls", "Shake! Shake! Shake!", "Love Train", "Say You Will", and "The Kickapoo". CD features 8 bonus tracks too – including "The New Breed", "Haunted House", "Call Her Up", "I'm Travelin On", "I'm Going Crazy", "Baby Get It", and "He's A Fool". CD

VariousBehind Closed Doors – Where Country Meets Soul ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A stellar collection of country soul by many of the greatest voices of any strain of soul music – Solomon Burke, Esther Phillips, Al Green, Bettye Swann, Percy Sledge, Little Milton, Candi Stanton and many more! A healthy portion of the material comes from the late 60s and early 70s – recordings that bring a depth of genuine soul to songs written or popularized by artists more often associated with the country charts. That said, it's soul music all the way – showing both the dexterity of these great soul singers and the adaptability of the such great songs. Includes "Detroit City" by Arthur Alexander, "He'll Have To Go" by Solomon Burke, "Take Time To Know Her" by Percy Sledge, "I Saw Me" by Esther Phillips, "Hangin' On" by Ann Peebles, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" by Al Green, "Behind Closed Doors" by Little Milton, "Set Me Free" by Clarence Carter, "Yours, Love" by Joe Simon, "She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye" by Brook Benton and more.

VariousBert Berns Story Vol 3 – Hang On Sloopy ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
The legendary Bert Berns – a hell of a songwriter, record producer, and all-around driving force on the New York scene of the 60s – a creative talent who's left us a huge legacy of great music in both soul and rock! This fantastic third volume covers the full scope of Bert's talents – and somehow manages to dig even deeper than the first two – as it reaches for more obscure, unusual sides that featured participation by Berns – including some gems we'd never heard before! And yes, Bert had his hands in plenty of hits, but lots of these numbers are the more unusual, more interesting cuts he'd craft in the studio – sometimes when extra time was left in the production schedule, or he was trying out new ideas with familiar groups. Titles include "Let The Water Run Down" by Ben E King, "There They Go" by The Exciters, "Chick A Boom" by Van Morrison, "My Block" by Clyde McPhatter, "Stop What You're Doin" by Roy C, "Mo Jo Hanna" by Betty Harris, "One Girl" by Garnet Mimms, "Aretha" by The Drifters, "You Better Come Home" by The Isley Brothers, "I've Got Nothing To Say But Goodbye" by Tammy Montgomery, "You'll Never Leave Her" by Lulu, "Hang On Sloopy" by Arsenio, "Cry Some Tears" by Hoagy Lands, and "Beautiful Brown Eyes" by Solomon Burke.

VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 2 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD CD format
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Blazing R&B, slightly more simmering soul, and some rollicking wildcard tunes that split the difference – all on this fantastic second volume in the R&B Singles series from Outta Sight! It's a great collection, culled mostly from the fertile early 60s period when the sound was still strongly rooted in mid-to-late 50s rhythm & blues, yet beginning to lay the groundwork for gritty southern soul and tighter Northern Soul sounds to come. A nice mix of legendary names and lesser known stars alike, with 30 great tracks in all: "Feelin' Kind A Lonesome" by Willie J Charles with Lionel Hampton, the eternally amazing "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke", "Earthquake" by Roy Hamilton, "Come On Baby" by Marie Knight, "The Snake" by Oscar Brown Jr, "How Many More Times" by HB Barnum, "Shake It Up And Go" by John Lee Hooker, "A Three Dollar Bill" by Beverly Ann Gibson, "I See Your Face" by Joe Simon, "Betty Mae" by Rodger Green and more.

Bear Family (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $14.99 28.98
A massive batch of music – and almost as worth it for the overall package as it is for the great tunes inside! Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 60s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data! The whole thing's a perfect soul music time capsule – with the depth of production that we've always loved in Bear Family releases for other genres. Titles include "Playboy" by The Marvelettes, "Night Train" by James Brown, "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke, "I Know" by Barbara George, "I Found A Love" by The Falcons, "You Better Move On" by Arthur Alexander, "Release Me" by Esther Phillips, "Chains" by The Cookies, "I've Got A Woman (part 1)" by Jimmy McGriff, "I Need Your Lovin" by Don Gardner & Dee Dee Ford, "Snap Your Fingers" by Joe Henderson, and "Green Onions" by Booker T & The MGs.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Possibly the best-ever collection of blacksploitation grooves we've ever seen – a really comprehensive package that not only manages to cover the classics, but which also digs deep enough to come up with lots of fresh bits too! The set really sets a new level for the Soul Jazz label – and is carried off with enough authority towards Black Action films as the label's legendary efforts towards a host of less mainstream genres – truly an achievement for the label's crew, not to mention a heavier bonus for our funky listening pleasure! There's way more here than just a slapped-together batch of tunes from the early 70s – as the set's very carefully put together to showcase a wide range of sounds, along with notes that really get at the social and political power of both the music and the films. 2CD package features a massive color booklet inside the slipcase – and features 34 tracks that include "Shaft In Africa" by Johnny Pate, "Down & Out In New York City" by James Brown, "Wilford's Gone" by The Blackbyrds, "Run Fay Run" by Isaac Hayes, "Theme From Black Belt Jones" by Dennis Coffey, "Willie Chase" by JJ Johnson, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Charley" by Don Costa, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch, "Blacula" by Gene Page, "Theme From Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile" by Isaac Hayes, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Aragon" by Roy Ayers, "Strung Out" by Gordon Staples, "Easin In" by Edwin Starr, "The Bus" by Solomon Burke & Gene Page, "Make A Resolution" by The Impressions, "Ed & Digger" by Cotton Comes To Harlem, "Las Vegas Strut" by Jack Ashford, "Lay It On Your Head" by Don Julian, and "Zombie March" by Nat Dove & The Devils.

New Chuck JacksonTeardrops Keep Fallin On My Heart ... LP LP format
VIP, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
An obscure one by Chuck Jackson – but a great one too! The album was cut for Motown's VIP subsidiary, during a time when Chuck was experimenting with a slightly southern style – a bit in the mode of Solomon Burke or Brook Benton, but with a lighter touch, as you'd guess from Chuck's earlier recordings. The format provides a perfect platform for Chuck to open his voice a bit more, melt the ice from his earlier Wand sides, and get into a bit deeper vocal style. Titles include "Baby, I'll Get It", "I Can't Let My Heaven Walk Away", "Let Somebody Love Me", "Two Feet From Happiness", "Just A Little Love", "That's Me Lovin You", and "Have You Heard About The Fool".

Essential, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge amount of work produced and presented by the legendary Swamp Dogg – a hell of a great deep soul singer in his own right – but a talent who also helped so many other artists in the 60s and 70s! The range of talents here is really surprising – not just the tight roster of deep soul singers we usually associate with the Dogg's productions – but some bigger names we never realized worked with him at all, and a range of lesser-known talents who really get a lot of grit in their grooves from his studio work and songwriting. Titles on this second volume include "Keep On Dancing" by The Commodores, "Turn My World Around" by Brooks O'Dell, "Bump The Donkey" by Guitar Shorty, "Just Loving You" by Ruby Andrews, "Boogie Truck" by Nat Cross, "He's Gone" by Patti Labelle & The Bluebells, "It's So Nice" by Arthur Conley, "Sidewalks Fences & Walls" by Solomon Burke, "I Want To Sleep With You" by Ruth Brown, and "If She's Your Wife" by Bette Williams.

Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk, deep soul, and lots lots more – an amazing testament to the songwriting skills of New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint! Allen was a heck of a singer on his own – but he also worked plenty behind the scenes in the 60s and 70s – lending his tunes to many others, and producing a good number of recordings as well – some of the best of which are featured in this sweet little set! The package features two dozen smoking tunes from the pen of Toussaint – songs that are heavy on influences from New Orleans soul and funk – already sounding great in the hands of other soul singers in the collection, and really helping transform the style of other artists in ways you might not expect. The whole thing's got the same righteous vibe as Allen's best records from the 70s – and titles include "I'll Be Rolling" by Millie Jackson, "Hercules" by Boz Scaggs, "Occapella" by Lee Dorsey, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Solomon Burke, "Sweet Touch Of Love" by Irma Thomas, "Sneakin Sally Thru The Alley" by Robert Palmer, "What Do You Want The Girl To Do" by Lowell George, "Shoo Rah" by Frankie Miller, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "Freedom For The Stallion" by Bill Medley, "Whoever's Thrilling You" by ZZ Hill, "Tampin" by The Rhine Oaks, "A Certain Girl" by Warren Zevon, and even "Southern Nights" by Glen Campell.
