Solomon Burke, the larger-than-life 'King of Rock and Soul' whose songs blended soul, gospel, country and R&B was one of music's greatest vocalists of the twentieth century. The legendary Atlantic Records producer Jerry Wexler once called Burke, 'the best soul singer of all time.' Wearing a crown and cape, he took part in mock coronations on stage. A bare-chested Patrick Swayze danced seductively with Jennifer Grey to Burke's "Cry To Me" in one of the most memorable scenes from the movie "Dirty Dancing." With songs like "Cry To Me", "Down In The Valley" and "How Many Times" this 'Rock 'n' Soul collection from the early sixties is as fresh and relevant now as it was then.
