AllMusic Review by

Solomon Burke's booming, magnificent vocals and dramatic approach were particularly effective on a string of great early-'60s tracks. The lyrics, production, and setting blended soul and country elements, and Burke was the ideal singer to convey the two genres' similarities. This includes the epic tracks "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love" and "Just out of Reach (Of My Empty Arms)."
