Solomon Burke | Soul Alive! This is such a great live soul record, part gospel, part pure emotion, part beautiful rhythm and blues. None of his recordings showcase his command over an audience quite like Soul Alive!. Recorded in 1983 in Washington, D.C., the set proves Burke had lost little from his '60s heyday. His voice could swoon like a subdued gentleman, then suddenly burst out with such passion and intensity that it would make your skin crawl. He is really affecting some of the women in the audience on this album. If ever a man was possessed by the power of Gospel music, it was Solomon Burke. - tk
