Review

The big, brassy band that backs {$Solomon Burke} on this live set enhances, but never overshadows, his powerful vocals and God-given charisma. Opening with {&"Everybody Needs Somebody to Love,"} he gets the crowd in a festive mood before slinking into a strong three-song medley comprising {&"If You Need Me"}/{&"Tonight's the Night"}/{&"I Almost Lost My Mind."} He displays his preaching skills on {&"Cruel World,"} and you can almost see the collection plate being passed. {&"Candy/Candy Rap"} begins with a {\big band} arrangement, the sound is bold and brassy, but then lightens with {$Burke}'s {&"Candy Rap."} He excels on {&"Got to Get You Off My Mind,"} another one of his hits from back-in-the-day. In fact, the only glaring omission from his {^King Solomon} era is the bewitching {&"Somebody's Watching You."} On the three or so {\blues} tunes he does, if you close your eyes, you'll think it was a female singing, as he sings in a higher key on {\blues} tunes. {$Burke}, a true character, closes this enjoyable performance with {$Roy Brown}'s classic {&"Good Rockin' Tonight."} ~ Andrew Hamilton, Rovi
