Vinyl Lovers reissues one of Solomon Burke's finest albums, the splendid If You Need Me. Originally released in 1963 by Atlantic Records, and long unavailable on vinyl, this LP contains 12 songs recorded between 1959 and 1962. It is named for the opening cut, Solomon's take on Wilson Pickett's "If You Need Me," which was a successful single for Burke, who sent the song to No. 2 on the R&B charts. These mostly mid-tempo songs find Burke's gritty pleas at home in sultry, bluesy surroundings ("Send Me Some Loving") and sweetened up for the occasional exotica-tinged arrangement ("Tonight My Heart She Is Crying"). This is the material upon which Solomon Burke's legend was built. It is enduring music and the epitome of southern soul up north. In addition to the original masterpiece, this collector's edition also includes two bonus tracks, from the same period: "Gotta Travel On" and "Looking for My Baby".
