Did it have anything to do with him weighing 500lbs and wearing giant gloves?
probably so on the 500 pounds part
I fucking love Solomon Burke ...I have one original lp by him - I ALMOST LOST MY MIND (Clarion 607)... Clarion was a subsidiary of Atlantic Records. It's awesome... Kind of like a pre-ASTRAL WEEKS Van Morrison only with a much deeper vocal.
I also have an import album from Charly Records from England -a kind of greatest hits called CRY TO ME (CRB 1075).
Powerful soul singer of the classic style derived from the old 40s & 50s Gospel Shouter school.
Motherfucker was amazing but in later years he was the size of two Barcaloungers.
Amazing he made it to 70 considering he must have been constantly eating.
He must have weighed as much as Aretha Franklin X 3.
