If you’re looking for a story that best summarizes the last year in the life of Charles Bradley, you'd be hard pressed to find a better one than the night he and his band showed up in Utopia, Texas to play an outdoor show in the middle of a thunderstorm. "It was just raining, raining, raining," Bradley recalls. "I walked out onstage, and there were about 800 people ... Read more in Amazon's Charles Bradley Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal ... 5 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I didn't know they made records like this anymore. I had the wonderful good fortune to see Charles Bradley live at a music festval in France this Summer, and was just blown away by his voice, his presence, and his band. It was like seeing James Brown, Otis Redding, or certainly someone of that calibre. And then to read about the back story to his life - he's certainly a man whose experiences are poured into his songs.

How lucky we are to have this man finally get round to releasing an album - thank God that someone had the sense to see what a talent he is. This is the best CD I have bought in years. I want to buy 100 copies for all my friends, and spread the good word about this amazing man.

Feel the love, Charles - it is so deserved!

4.0 out of 5 stars Golden Rule: Daptone/Dunham Can Do No Wrong! 22 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another fantastic entry in the Daptone/Dunham catalog, and this time it's Charles
Bradley's time to shine, backed up by Dap-Kings guitarist Brenneck and his
supersoulsolid Menahan Street Band.

A voice doesn't come much rawer than Bradley's. The man has definite soul power,
sometimes he hits like a roll of thunder, and it's easy to understand that he
once fronted a James Brown tribute band. The man sure can holler!

In the end I think it sounds a bit too similar to get top honours, and maybe
The Menahan Street band could have taken a more adventurous approach to
some of the songs, but that is a negligible complaint, as you will find a lot
of truly great songs on it.

Standouts: the soul classic The World Is Going Up In Flames, I Believe In
Your Love(with sweet horn stabs, and backing vocals from The Gospel Queens),
No Time For Dreaming, the truly amazing How Long and the album closer, Heartaches
And Pain, a sad, autobiographical tale about a family member killing his brother.

Put in in the basket. Payday is long overdue for Charles Bradley. Amazon should
even charge you over prize for this one, so we can be assured the man drive
according to his class, in a golden limo soulsmobile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly The Best Soul Album of All Time 17 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe nobody has reviewed this yet.

I had What's Goin' On down as the best soul album I'd ever heard until this came out a few weeks ago. Charles Bradley's voice is the definition of soul. Every note he sings is beautiful and is filled with a thousand stories and emotions. The songwriting is classic and timeless; there is the perfect amount of room for all of the instruments to fully find a home in the deep soul rhythms, as heard on the seminal MSB album. Dave Guy and Leon Michels on the horns are the perfect partner for Bradley's voice; imperfect, raw, full of emotion, soulful, powerful, beautifully real. I saw Dave Guy with the Dap Kings a few months ago and he can play just one note, with his whole body into it like a sportsman teeing up a kick, and it's flawless and beautiful. Steinweiss never fails to play the perfect beat that the track needs, I can't think of one ride that's overcooked or anything. Oh and the production is so perfect. Roth & Brenneck. Expect less?

My only, only criticism is that I don't know why they included The Telephone Song, which was a b-side instrumental already released on the MSB album, that should have stayed on the 45's bum.

The Daptone family are so far ahead of everyone else in the soul game that it's getting hard to listen to other records. What is Brenneck going to do next? I'm flying to Amsterdam tomorrow to see them live and I might just ask him. Theyre not even playing a UK date. Clearly noone cares over here.

Anyways just buy it and keep putting soul up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forged By Life Experience 14 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
On listening to "No Time For Dreaming", you might be surprised to hear this is 62 year old Charles Bradley's debut album. It's not an album that has been conceptualised to capture a feeling, more it is the end-product of a sound forged by the life-experience, honesty and rawness of Bradley and the enthusiasm and dedication to authentic soul of his collaborators, the Menahan Street Band.

It's during "The Telephone Song" the album gets one of its special moments, as the band briefly drop-out and leave Bradley's voice to cut the air. And it cuts with authority, power and of conviction that assures us he knows what he is talking about. The singer survived an upbringing of limited means in Brooklyn, spending much of his youth living on the streets. After a 20 year stint trying to make it as a performer in California whilst scratching a living as a chef, he rejoined his family in Brooklyn only to suffer tragedy when his Brother was murdered. But his musical ambition, which was ignited when his sister took him to see James Brown at the Apollo in 1962, has always kept him going and he began to make a name for himself, performing James Brown routines in Brooklyn clubs under the name "Black Velvet". When Daptone Record's Gabriel Roth chanced upon his show, Bradley was immediately brought in to record with Sugarman 3. Initially the busy label had little time to develop him as an artist. However, label-mate, musician and producer Thomas Brenneck recorded sporadically with Bradley before setting up Daptone satellite: Dunham Records and the Menahan Street Band.
