This essential release includes two of Burke’s finest long plays from the early Sixties in their entireties: his underrated and eponymous debut album, Solomon Burke, and the equally splendid If You Need Me. These two LPs are widely regarded as landmarks of early-’60s soul. Both masterpieces have been remastered and packaged together in this very special release, which also includes 6 bonus tracks from the same period. These seminal recordings also feature a virtual who’s who of fabulous musicians, including King Curtis, Hank Jones, Al Caiola, Mickey Baker, and The Ray Charles Singers, among others. This is the material upon which Solomon Burke’s legend was built. It is enduring music and the epitome of southern soul up north.
