A few months ago I wrote a post about sweet soul music and one of its primary practitioners, the very great Solomon Burke.
And today, as I was wandering the back roads of the internet, cruising YouTube for interesting music videos, I found this one of Burke at a concert that appears to be in Germany.
I don’t usually post links to this sort of thing — there is so much great music to be heard; so many great artists to be seen.
But I was moved by the power of this 30-minute video, and by the awesome magic of Burke’s magnificent voice and performance. I’m sure there are others, and maybe even better ones. But this one caught my eye and ear, and I was pretty much entranced for the duration.
So if you can, late one night, send this one through your TV set or appropriate speaker system, pour a nice double bourbon, and let this gorgeous voice fill that hole in your soul (not to mention some sensual sax work).
