Solomon Burke

Live at Montreux 2006 DVD

Review by Gary Hill

I’ve reviewed the audio CD version of this separately in this issue of Music Street Journal. So, this review will focus more just on the video aspects than on the songs or audio of the performance. One thing, though is even in the audio you can hear the kind of showman Solomon Burke was. He directed and led the group. When you see the DVD and realize that he did it from the comfort of a chair, that’s even more impressive. The man was really a talent. This is a hot performance and the video and sound here are both great. The mix of sounds from R&B to soul, blues, funk and more is great. The whole band is really talented and it shows in the quality of the performance. This is an excellent set for fans of Burke. It’s highly recommended as introduction to this talented man, too.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2013  Volume 5 at
