Soloman Burke 45Solomon-BurkeA preacher at the age of nine, Solomon Burke was a pioneer in Soul music. Mick Jagger covered three of Burke’s songs on early albums by the Rolling Stones. Ironically, it was a Country song “Just out Of Reach (Of My Two Open Arms)” that was his first hit in 1961. He is probably best known for his Soul-flavored single “Cry to Me.” The single on Atlantic records can now fetch $40.00. His 1962 debut album “Solomon Burke,” released on Apollo records, is worth up to $400.00 today.
