We gave it an A-

Resurrected soul dude Solomon Burke came back strong with 2002’s smoldering Don’t Give Up on Me. But where that album was a slow burn, Burke’s latest, Make Do With What You Got, is more like a barn burner. Dipping into his boldface Rolodex for songs from Robbie Robertson, Bob Dylan, and others, Burke belts it out like he did for Atlantic during his ’60s salad days. Don Was’ appreciative arrangements leave room for the big man’s vocal majesty.
