R&B legend Solomon Burke passed over the weekend. I love the man’s music. A few years ago he emerged from his self-imposed retirement and released an album of songs written for him by those he influenced, including Dylan, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, et. al. He’s also the first one to have a hit with “Everybody Needs Somebody (To Love)” made popular for a new generation of fans by the Blues Brothers. Here’s one of his early hits.
