Solomon Burke - Make Do with What you GotThe legendary r&b preacher returns from his Grammy-winning comeback album, Don’t Give Up on Me, with another superb collection of soulful covers. Produced by Don Was, it features Burke’s signature voice on Hank Williams’ cautionary “Wealth Won’t Save Your Soul” and Coco Montoya’s “I Need Your Love in My Life.” Even better is the horn-filled version of Bob Dylan’s “What Good Am I?” And Burke captures the lonely ache of Robbie Robertson’s “It Makes No Difference” even better than The Band.
