Just Out Of Reach – Solomon Burke

Welcome to “Soulful Sundays,” everyone. Did you know there was a Super Group called “The Soul Clan?” Well there was and it consisted of the top soul singers of the day. Solomon Burke came up with the idea and pitched to his fellow soul artists: Don Covay, Joe Tex, Ben E. King, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Solomon Burke. That was the original six with Arthur Conley joining to replace Otis Redding when he left the Group.
Now you have to realise that these six who were all artist under Atlantic Records/Stax were the top R&B, and Soul singers in the 60s and 70s. In fact Arthur Conley was a protege of Otis Redding before replacing him in the Clan.
I have somewhere in my collection one of the LPs they put out in 1966, called “Solid Gold Soul, America's Great Soul Singers.” If you can find it on CD I recommend picking it up.
This week I am showcasing four of the six.
Here is the brain behind the Soul Clan, Mr. Solomon Burke with “Just Out Of Reach.”
