Don't Give Up on Me

Don't Give Up on Me is a studio album by R&B/Soul singer Solomon Burke, recorded and released in 2002 on Fat Possum Records. The album won the Mojo Album of The Year award, as well as the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album. It is noteworthy for the contributions of original and previously unreleased compositions by top-rank songwriters, the effect of which placed Burke back in the public eye for a time. Guest stars are Daniel Lanois, who plays electric guitar on "Stepchild", and The Blind Boys of Alabama, who feature on backing vocals for "None of Us Are Free".

The title track, written by the team of Dan Penn and Carson Whitsett with Hoy Lindsey, has since become a staple of Burke's live performances and has been covered by Joe Cocker, as well as actor Peter Gallagher.
