The Wisdom Of Solomon

      There's only one word to describe this: Awesome.

R&B heavyweight Solomon Burke, who co-wrote the early Rolling Stones concert staple "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love," has returned the favor by recording the group's soulful ballad "I Got the Blues" for his next album, his spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

The Stax-infused tune, which originally appeared on the 1971 Stones album "Sticky Fingers," joins tracks written by the likes of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Robbie Robertson and Hank Williams on "Make Do With What You Got."
Morrison, Dylan, Robertson, and Dr John? I'm in. I'm sooo in.

      Don't know who Solomon Burke is? You ought to be ashamed of yourself. You can check out his official website here, or, more particularly, this biography from the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
