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

Daptone Records continue to caress these ears with a consistently high standard of soul/funk material. Continuing the theme of the previous Charles Bradley album 'No Time For Dreaming' this excellent set is every bit as good. The Motown influenced 'You Put a Flame On It' smacks of major hit record immediately you hear the first bar, if only it could receive the radio air play required. Reliably backed by The Menahan Band, the whole set is full of true soul whether it makes you smile or feel sad makes no difference all these tracks are winners in my book from heavy funk (Love Bug Blues) to blistering heart wrenching ballad (Victim of Love-feel those screams!!); this is all great stuff! This CD provides compounding evidence that true music still exists within the commercial, manufactured world of what now gets called R'n'B. Unashamedly old school,if you enjoy the soulful side of James Brown or Bobby Womack you need to buy this. ESSENTIAL!!!!! Cannot recommend nearly enough to give this justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blimey a real "soul singer" ! 7 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Back in the day we had something called "Soul Music" - and this unashamedly falls into that category. I had never heard of this guy before and this has blown me away. Think Sharon Jones and you'll get the drift. A real singer,great selection of tunes,fine production and excellent musicianship. Other reviewers give you the lengthy track by track stuff - my message if you understand what " R 'n B" and Soul stood for - this is for you. Love it. Love it. Love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charles Bradley - "The screaming eagle of soul" 29 April 2013
Format:Audio CD
Charles Bradley is a street survivor, a graduate of the school of hard knocks, an almost mini Dickensian tragedy who somehow at the age of 62 released a passionate debut album which invoked the ghosts of great soul singers of yore not least Otis Redding and the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. The latter reference is hardly surprising since Bradley made a living moonlighting as a James Brown impersonator for many years Check out please the excellent documentary "Soul of America", that premiered at SXSW in 2012 which tells his fascinating and often harshly painful story of Bradley on his journey to stability and potential worldwide domination. "Hyperbole" you say? Not at all is the retort since anyone listening to Bradley will recognise the deep well of exorcism that Bradley excavates tapping into his painful backdrop and downright harrowing experience. He also is a perfect fit for out times arriving when the great Daptone label set up by soul saint Gabriel Roth with his partner Neal Sugarman, from the ashes of Desco Records, is firing on all cyclinders. With acts like Sharon Lewis and Naomi Shelton it has recognisably become the most influential and highly regarded name on the soul and funk scene today with a roster of acts which can blow most bands of the earth's axis.

"Victim of love" sits formally in the 10 year old tradition of this stable and is full of that classic authentic soul which regularly re-emerges when other music forms plummet and bore. Bradley floored this reviewer when he did a smoking version of his single "When the world goes up in flames" on Jools Holland. The good news is that there are songs on "Victim of Love" of that equal class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Victim Of Love [VINYL] Charles Bradley 13 Aug 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Well I first saw Charles Bradley on a TV programme on BBC4, and I was completely stunned. This man is 60+ apparently been around for years with a James Brown tribute show in New York USA. Charles Bradley is such a quality singer, and song writer - he is utterly reminiscent of a 1960s Classic Soul Music Singer - his songs are wonderful and very topical for today.
If like me you do love Classic Soul Music from the 1960/70s then this Vinyl record is for you, that is if you love the sound of Vinyl records, and the sound of this record is superb - clean and full bodied. A utterly worth-while investment if you do love quality music and have inquisitiveness as a character trait. Charles Bradley certainly is phenomena quite unique, I hope he manages to live till 80 and keep producing wonderful Classic Soul Music. I was convinced that Classic Soul Music was finished, but this recording by Daptone Records - purveyors of terrific Classic Soul Music, made for today proves that is inacurate. Buy it today it's marvelous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now that's what I call music!! 18 April 2014
By Viv
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Found this album by accident after listening to another Daptone artist. If you love old school soul you will love this.
His raspy voice pours out his heart on "Strictly reserved for you", while the horns and guitar carry you away to another place. The chaos on "Confusion" is divine and the instrumental "Dusty Blue" is so good that you don't need any vocals to carry it along.
I could wax lyrical about the other tracks but I think you get the gist.........

4.0 out of 5 stars Charles Bradley - Victim of Love 26 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is pure old school soul music, which is new material that could have been lifted straight from the 60s. This will probably appeal to the older generation who can remember some of the obvious influences of this album, such as Otis redding, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, so it will not be everyones cup of tea. I would have given this 5 star, but for the instrumental filler, which isn't bad and sometimes the overdone and somewhat cliched backing vocals. Great to hear good old proper soul music. UK gigs for Autumn 2013 sold out, so word is getting round.

I wouldn't say this album is as good as Charles' other album, but still has some really good songs. 'Put a Flame on it' is a highlight.
