Got to Get You Off My Mind and Other Hits

With Solomon Burke enjoying a richly deserved post-millennial comeback thanks to his well-received albums Don't Give Up On Me and Make Do With What You Got, some recent converts to the King of Rock & Soul might be in need of a crash course in his classic sides of the 1960s, which doubtless prompted the release of this budget-priced compilation. Featuring ten tracks from Burke's tenure at Atlantic Records, Got to Get You Off My Mind features a few of Burke's better-known tunes (most notably "Cry to Me," "Goodbye Baby [Baby Goodbye]," and the title cut) as well as some equally impressive lesser-known songs from his salad days, though the set manages to skip Burke's two biggest hits, "Just Out of Reach (Of My Two Empty Arms)" and "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love." The mastering sounds good and there isn't a single dud track on this album, and casual listeners curious about Burke's Atlantic sides could do worse than to pick this up. But those who think they might ever want to go deeper into Burke's catalog are advised to pony up a few more bucks and get Rhino's superior The Very Best of Solomon Burke or the excellent double-disc collection Home in Your Heart: The Best of Solomon Burke.
