Rock 'n Soul is a 1964 studio album by Grammy Award winning musician Solomon Burke. The album contained seven top 100 hits. Originally released on LP on Atlantic Records, in November 1964, it was subsequently reissued in March, 1997, on the Sequel Records imprint, 861. The album was also reissued in 1998 on the Collectables Records label in conjunction with a June, 1963, Burke album as If You Need Me/Rock 'n' Soul.

Solomon Burke's first album for Atlantic Records features three bona fide hits and other treats done as only the soulful, preaching singer with croon-ability can. He defies pigeonholing. Nobody ever talks of what range Burke sings in because it doesn't matter. Like Michael Jordan or Allen Iverson on the basketball court, Burke makes you feel like he's capable of anything and everything in the studio.

Jet magazine was right on the money when it recognized Solomon Burke as the King of Rock 'n' Soul in January, 1964. The Philadelphia-born singer's debut album for Atlantic Records was released later that year and features rock, soul and even a little swamp pop, all sung in an inimitable voice that garnered Burke such admirers as The Rolling Stones. The set is sort of a best-of collection of his work going back almost three years, and most of its dozen tracks reached the Billboard Top 100 singles chart, including hits like "Just Out of Reach (Of My Two Open Arms),".

This collection features the titular King, Solomon Burke, in fine voice on a heavily New Orleans-influenced set that splits selections from his LIVE AT THE HOUSE OF BLUES album with cuts from SOUL OF THE BLUES. Read full description. See details and exclusions. This is Solomon at his best. How he manages songs of this quality after all these years still amazes me. I've not had this cd off since I bought it. He shows his ability to sound like many other great artistes.

He was proclaimed the King of Rock and Soul in 1964 and has also been anointed the Bishop of Soul. No less an authority than Jerry Wexler, the legendary Atlantic Records producer, has proclaimed, The best soul singer of all time is Solomon Burke. Burke’s versatile, force-of-nature voice combined gospel fervor, country gentility and R&B grit. He could swing from a satiny croon to a gruff soul shout to a deep, caressing baritone. Burke was a consummate showman who adopted the role of King of Rock ‘n’ Soul onstage by adorning himself in a regal robe of velvet and ermine. Jerry Wexler pronounced Burke a vocalist of rare prowess and remarkable range. His voice was an instrument of exquisite sensitivity.
