Soul Deep is the fifth studio album by Australian rock singer Jimmy Barnes, originally released in November 1991 by Mushroom Records.

As a solo artist, Jimmy Barnes has scored eleven number one records in Australia, as of 2016. Barnes was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and his family immigrated to Adelaide in 1956 when he was four. After Cold Chisel gave their final performance in December 1983 and Barnes immediately launched a solo career, eclipsing Cold Chisel's record sales with six number one solo albums in a row.

Jimmy Barnes did a funny thing when he released Soul Deep. Gone was the long hair and leather jacket. Barnes was now a soul crooner, complete with '50s suits and slicked hair. He performed soul standards like Jackie Wilson's "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher", Sam and Dave's "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby", and Ike and Tina Turner's "River Deep, Mountain High". But the change is only a superficial one: Barnes is not a soul singer, and instead chooses to deliver these classics in his own style. 

Soul Deep definitely confused his fan base, depending on your viewpoint, this album was either an abomination or a refreshing new take on some classic Motown songs. Purists hated Barnes' gravelly delivery of these songs , but Barnes has assembled a cohesive tribute to '60s soul.

Soul Deep is typical Barnes, but with a twist, making this a brave, yet rewarding, step away from his blue-collar commercial rock.

Check out the tracks: “I Gotcha”; “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby” and ”Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. 

This reissued LP with reproduced artwork is pressed in Germany on red 180-gram heavyweight vinyl.
