Sixties Soul

I have an oldie but a goodie here. Solomon Burke was a preacher and singer who shaped the sound of soul in the early 1960’s. I heard this on a local radio station while I was driving and I loved it immediately. That sunshine feeling of Sixties soul music gets me dancing every time. The power of the horn section drives this track through loud bursts, which complement Burke’s soft and articulate voice. There are also back up singers, which come in during the chorus to help Burke, bringing the song together as track. If you dig early R&B, this song is right up your alley and for those who are not, this song has a sweeping range of qualities that you could get behind.
