Solomon Burke helped shape the sound of rhythm and blues as one of the founding fathers of soul music. He had a litany of hit singles in the '60s for Atlantic Records including "Cry to Me, "If You Need Me," "Down in the Valley," and "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love." Drawing inspiration from gospel, jazz, country and blues – Burke developed his own unique style and was often called "The King of Rock ‘n' Soul." Atlantic co-founder Jerry Wexler hails Burke as "the greatest male soul singer of all time." In 2001, he was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.
Run Out Groove's twelfth title is a brand new retrospective of Solomon Burke's critically-acclaimed, recorded material for Atlantic Records from 1962-1965 including the hit song, "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love," featured on the Blues Brothers movie soundtrack. It is the first domestic vinyl collection of his ground breaking Atlantic recordings released since 1966. Each LP is individually numbered and comes pressed on 180g vinyl courtesy of Record Industry. An old school tip-on Stoughton sleeve with brand new artwork and liner notes rounds out the package.
