'Cornbread'By Cornbread

Jeff Scheetz Band – Beggars, Rogues & ThievesSolomon Burke –
Make Do With What You Got

{March 2005}

Make Do With What You Got is the fresh new soulful release from the Grammy winning Solomon Burke. The CD features new songs by Van Morrison and Dr. John as well as performances by Ray Parker Jr. and Reggie Young. As an added bonus Burke digs up a song by Mick Jagger & Keith Richards as well as a Bob Dylan song.

1. I Need Your Love In My Life – big band production, screamin’ guitar solo with modern day soul.

2. What Good Am I? (Bob Dylan) – kinda bluesy music, a bit of organ, far from the folk original, a pretty decent version.

3. It Makes No Difference (the Band) – spoken deep down and low at first then sang up high with backing vocals.

4. Let Somebody Love Me – this song has the feel and mojo of a 70’s classic Motown tune.

5. After All These Years – organ playin’ and deep, low vocals. This song is a winner.

6. Fading Footsteps – another winner, the guitar is more prominent and vocals demand attention as well as respect.

7. At The Crossroads – has a southern, gospel flair to it.

8. I Got The Blues (Mick Jagger & Keith Richards) – wow! A slow powerful song, a little too polished, the gospel shines through this song as well.

9. Make Do With What You Got – good tune, the guitar almost sounded as if it was a slow chicken pickin’.

10. Wealth Won’t Save Your Soul (Hank Williams Sr.) – I can feel it, almost painful, this song is outstanding. The guitar was very good too.

If you're spectin’ a blues CD chocked full of guitar riffs and shuffles you’ll be disappointed. What you will get is ten tracks reaping of soulful vocals served up in classic R&B style. Rating 4.37 outta 5.

Ciao’ for now, peace.
