* Solomon Burke, "Don't Give Up on Me," Fat Possum. Burke, one of the all-time great soul singers, had been off the pop radar screen for a few decades until last year, when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This collection of songs written for Burke also includes contributions by such respected writers as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Tom Waits and Elvis Costello. The tunes range from plaintive and winsome to philosophical, and Burke's spectacular voice updates the intensity and desire of soul's golden age.
