So Long, Solomon Burke

"I'm talkin' about Brother Solomon Burke, you all know him dontcha."
-Wilson Pickett

The world lost a literal and figurative giant yesterday with the passing of Solomon Burke. Please enjoy these admittedly obvious choices from his oeuvre as well as various other stabs at material written by or associated with King Solomon, until somebody else, hopefully The Hound, posts something more eloquent and comprehensive.

Home In Your Heart
Cry To Me
Stupidity

Otis Redding - Down In The Valley
(complete with skip to help perpetuate the illusion that you are listening to a record)
Wilson Pickett - Everybody Needs Somebody To Love
Betty Harris - Cry To Me
Dr. Feelgood - Stupidity
Bill Woman & the Limey Fops - If You Need Me

Good stuff. How about the Stones' cover of "If You Need Me?"

What's the matter with Down In The Valley. I keep getting an error message that it's unavailable or cannot be found.

p.s. - Hi Matt!
