In memory of Solomon Burke (1940-2010)

"None of us are free/ If one of us is chained/ None of us are free"
Solomon Burke, None of Us are Free, from the 2002 CD Dont Give Up on Me  (words and lyrics by Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil/Brenda Russell)

Very sad to hear of the passing of legendary African American soul singer Solomon Burke who died over the weekend. A great loss to music.

His 2002 CD Don't Give up On Me is as good as music gets.
