R.I.P. Solomon Burke

If you've never heard Burke's early

works, you owe it to yourself to give them a listen. His compositions, structure, and overall music ability were, in my opinion, well beyond what other early rock n' roll and R&B acts were. Always a joy to listen and sing to.

Sadly, he passed this last weekend from an unconfirmed heart attack.
