Solomon Burke sings De Dijk songs

Filed under: Music by Branko Collin @ 2:22 pm

You may have heard that soul legend Solomon Burke (Everybody Needs Somebody to Love, Got to Get You Off My Mind) died in the Netherlands last month. What you may not know is that shortly before he had recorded a CD with songs written (and performed) by Dutch rock band De Dijk (lit. The Dike).

Now I have always considered De Dijk a decent band, but nothing special. Funny how swapping out the singers can make such a difference to my ears, even though Huub van der Lubbe is no slouch.

The CD De Dijk recorded with Solomon Burke is called Hold on Tight.
