Solomon Burke - King Of Rock And Soul

Solomon Burke, 70 years, has passed on. He died before he could perform at a gig at Paradiso Concert Hall, Amsterdam, Holland. Presley was the King of Rock n Roll but Burke was the King of Rock n Soul.
His songs included: Just Out Of Reach (Of My Two Open Arms), Cry To Me, If You Need Me, Got To Get You Off My Mind, Tonight's The Night. He also covered, Proud Mary, Detroit City and Shambala among others. Big Daddy sang country too with soul baby feeling.
