Brother Solomon still goin' strong!

From the man who gave us the classic "Everybody Needs Someone To Love" back in the 60's, "Don't Give Up On Me" delves deep in to the soul that we all know him for but also blends some acoustic folk & blues roots as well. A "must have" for anyone who appreciates a little soul in their music.

Phenomenal and moving
