Idag släppte Fat Possum en skiva som bara måste leta sig upp på alla årsbästalistor som finns: Solomon Burkes "Don't Give Up On Me". Per Bjurman har alltså helt rätt i sin femplusrecension, Solomon Burke är störst av alla och det är årets album. I alla fall hittills.
Tror ni mig inte? Tror ni inte på Per Bjurman? Det är rätt - man ska alltid tänka själv. Därför klickar ni alla på denna länk, en länk vilken leder direkt till hela "Don't Give Up On Me", i RealAudio.
Och minns:
What's become of soul music? It didn't die with Otis Redding; it didn't stop when Al Green quit; it didn't fade with James Brown’s voice--it's been in Los Angeles the entire time, under the astute and faithful stewardship of Solomon Burke. Burke, the King of Rock & Soul, the Bishop, is a big man with an even bigger talent, a revered vocalist whose mastery is unmatched by any other proponent of the style he largely originated. Burke embodies deep soul, with a forty plus year career that's produced a series of records consistently profound in emotional, artistic and spiritual gravity.
