Deluxe edition! The complete, unedited Soul Alive! show for the first time on compact disc. 2 CD set with special low price and 24-bit remastering. Solomon Burke's Soul Alive! is one of the greatest live recordings you'll ever hear. Made in 1983 before a Washington, D.C. nightclub audience, here is soul music at its grittiest and most raucous. Solomon's voice is a miracle of range and dynamics as he delivers his classic hits such as 'Just Out of Reach' and 'Cry to Me,' but it's the secular sermons at the heart of the six medleys here that transport the audience. There is no nostalgia in this recording because for Solomon Burke's audience at the Phoenix 1 Club soul music has never gone away, and as they interpolate their own clamorous response to 'Having a Party,' 'You're Good For Me,' 'I Almost Lost My Mind,' 'I Can't Stop Loving You,' the songs themselves become something like soul anthems, the emotional transport of the crowd inspires Solomon to new heights, their enthusiasm, excitement, and generosity of spirit mirror his own. 'I want everyone to be satisfied,' Solomon declares at one point. And undoubtedly they are. - from Peter Guralnick's notes 'An essential addition to any soul fan's collection.'
