Solomon Burke

From the FUV Vault: Solomon Burke

by Russ Borris

For Words and Music this month, we're dipping into the Vault to revisit some of our favorite FUV Sessions. This week my pick is our 2007 session with Solomon Burke. 

I’ll always remember interviewing the King of Rock and Soul, Solomon Burke.  He returned to WFUV after releasing a country-tinged album, Nashville produced by Buddy Miller.  Dapper as ever, the man just had an aura about him.  It was a great conversation talking about his history in the business, family and his storied career.

Solomon Burke - Words and Music - 2007

One of the great soul voices of all time showed his country roots on the album 'Nashville' and proved he's still going strong after nearly 6 decades in the business. His name is Solomon Burke, and during a recent conversation with Russ Borris, he shared his thoughts on everything from music to hamburgers.
