Though he never had a top 20 pop hit, Solomon Burke has long had the respect and admiration of better known musicians like Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and Elvis Costello. On this release, Burke returns with a collection of songs written by these and other great artists.
Alan Lomax will be remembered for the remarkable collection of field recordings he made with his father of traditional folk music beginning in the 1930s. Here we feature one of the better-known artists Lomax recorded, Mississippi Fred McDowell.
Badly Drawn Boy is the alter ego of Britain's Damon Gough. With two remarkable solo records behind him, Gough agreed to write the music for the film About A Boy after reading the original story by author Nick Hornby.
