The definitive fully authorised Solomon Burke story. Paul Spencer's film, screened recently on BBC Television, follows his journey from a humble Philadelphia neighbourhood to New York, Hollywood, and the music industry's highest accolades. We trace his music back to its gospel roots and learn how faith in God sustains him, his 21 children, 79 grandchildren and 17 great grand children, the family he thought he would never have. Bill Wyman tells us how the Rolling Stones in their formative years, covered three of his songs, Tom Jones admits that for him, Solomon left all the other soul singers in the shade, and Jools Holland explains how his powerful voice and magisterial presence guaranteed him appearances on "Later" as well as Jools' latest record.
