From Buddy & Julie Miller's website:


‘NASHVILLE’ IN NASHVILLE:
GRAMMY® WINNER SOLOMON BURKE
DEBUTS ‘UNMISSABLE’ NEW CD


WITH SEPTEMBER 25 SHOW
AT NASHVILLE’S BELCOURT THEATER
WITH BUDDY MILLER

“Unmissable” is Time magazine’s early assessment of the Buddy Miller-produced NASHVILLE, the forthcoming effort by GRAMMY® winning Rock and Roll Hall of Famer SOLOMON BURKE, out September 26 on Shout! Factory.

Fans in the CD’s namesake city will find out for themselves the night before its release, as SOLOMON – dubbed The King of Rock and Soul – and Miller take to the stage at Nashville’s Belcourt Theater on September 25 for a filmed performance featuring appearances by a pair of the album’s guests, Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin.

Set to include 13 of NASHVILLE’s 14 songs, along with a handful of tunes from SOLOMON’s 2005 album Make Do With What You Got, the concert will also air in HDTV on HD Net in early 2007. Priced at $40 apiece, a limited number of tickets for the show go on sale to the general public September 1 at the Belcourt Theatre box office or at http://tickets.belcourt.org.

Completing SOLOMON’s 21st Century trilogy of classic music, NASHVILLE is a 14-song disc of poignant country songs produced in Nashville by revered songwriter, musician and producer Buddy Miller. According to the August 21 issue of Time, this “unmissable” collection of earnest, passionate, uplifting, joyous and sometimes mournful tracks, “is a great way to discover a legendary voice.”

Writing for The Hollywood Reporter and Reuters, Chris Morris agrees that, “The singer is in superlative voice on Nashville.”

NASHVILLE has the vintage feel of his early recordings melded with his most recent, yet this is like nothing SOLOMON has ever done before.

Proclaims the man himself, “There’s a revival in my soul that’s called Nashville.”


Buddy has produced the great Solomon Burke.
Solomon Burke the King of Rock n' Soul has recorded his new record at Buddy's home.

It is a country record featuring duets with Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, and Patty Loveless. Guest vocals also by Patty Griffin, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Gale West, and Regina and Ann McCrary. Players include Sam Bush, Al Perkins, Kenny Vaughan, Larry Campbell, Mickey Raphael, Kevin Welch, Paul Kennerley, Jim Lauderdale, Bryan Owings, Brady Blade, Phil Madeira, Byron House, Garry Tallent, and Chris Donohue. String arr. by Tom Howard.

Release date Sept 26

There is no voice that comes close.

You can hear 3 of the new songs off Nashville in their entirety, when you go to his website - link above.

I always enjoyed Solomon's contributions on Derek's Joyful Noise & just recently picked up my 1st album of his, the Grammy winning Don't Give Up On Me(2002). I REALLY like that one! Can anyone give me a recommendation or two from his earlier albums?

Thanks,
Larry O

To my knowledge, alot of Burke's early stuff has never really made it to CD.

If you can find it on CD, I would definitely recommend "King Solomon" A tremendous album, and I think it was put out on CD in the mid-90s. There was also a Live at the House of Blues album released in the mid-90s that had contemporary live versions of a bunch of his early hits on it.

In the last couple of years, there has been a bunch of "best of" type compilation releases. I don't know the names of those compilations, but I think your best bet would be to look and see if his mid-60s Atlantic records have been released on CD

I absolutely SOLOMON BURKE... He is so under-rated. What an incredible singer. Truly more amazing than most people realize.

As far as earlier albums. Some of his earlier stuff is available, but mostly in compilation form. Honestly, I have about 6 cds and I haven't been disappointed yet. PM if you want more information or questions.

Ditto on that!

I've been playng his "Make Do With What You Got" CD almost non-stop lately. This album is made up of covers from various artists such as Bob Dylan's "What Good Am I", Hank Williams' "Wealth Won't Save Your Soul" and Robbie Robertson's "It Makes No Difference" (which is so good I can't stop listening to it). Unbelievably soulful and touching.

Don't have any of his early stuff yet, but am working on it.
Would love to see SB live someday.

I highly recommend Proud Mary-the Bell Sessions. With songs like These Arms of Mine, That Lucky Ol' Sun, What am I Living For, In the Ghetto and God Knows I Love You...you cannot go wrong. Of course Proud Mary doesn't disappoint either!

A later release - Don't Give Up on Me is a favorite of mine, too. The title song, Fast Train, and Diamond in your Mind are worth the purchase alone.

Enjoy!

If you get the chance to see Solomon, go! These days he sits the entire show in an elaborate throne on stage but there's pleny of energy to go round! Dr. Love is a character who loves grabbing ladies from the audience to come on stage and dance - and they do!!

FIND A HOME IN YOUR HEART was a song my band covered a lot for a while, and one of my favorites... I LOVE his comeback stuiff the last few yrs, he has such serious soulful presence he makes the young guns look silly. He's the living king of soul, I would say...

Here's the All Music Guide Review of the Rhino compilation "Home In Your Heart," which I have and recommend highly. (BTW, this review was written before the Bell reissues obviously)...

"Of the great stars of the 1960s soul movement, Solomon Burke isn't as well-remembered as many of his peers, most likely because he had relatively minor success in the crossover marketplace (never scoring a Top 20 pop hit), and he faded from view on the R&B charts by the early '70s. But if Burke's impact was somewhat narrow, it was also quite deep; he was hugely popular in the deep south, a potent live attraction across the country, and (after Ray Charles) one of the first major attractions at Atlantic Records, who helped define the label's signature polished-but-deeply soulful sound. Burke also had, quite simply, one of the finest voices in popular music, a rich and resonant instrument that possessed a churchy authority that was the ideal match for his material, which balanced the pleasures of the flesh with the price of transgression. While Burke made solid albums after leaving Atlantic, his tenure at that label remains his strongest and most rewarding period, and "Home in Your Heart: The Best of Solomon Burke" is a superbly compiled and annotated two-disc set that cherrypicks 40 superb selections from Burke's Atlantic archive, including the epochal "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love," "Just Out Of Reach (Of My Two Empty Arms)," "Cry To Me," "The Price," "If You Need Me," and many more. Someday, some archivist should go through Burke's long out-of-print sides for MGM, Bell, Chess, Dunhill, and other labels and create a compilation that will fill in the gaps of Burke's "lost years" before his re-emergence in the mid-'80s, but for the meantime "Home in Your Heart: The Best of Solomon Burke" remains the best place to start exploring his body of work, and it's a remarkable collection of Southern soul at its finest. ~ Mark Deming, All Music Guide"
