5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Bradley sticks to the 'Golden Rule' for 60s soul revival
There's a growing body of revivalist soul out there, much of it thanks to Daptone and Truth & Soul. And with these labels having helped push soul back into the mainstream with Winehouse, Duffy and the legions of pretenders, it's good to see soul driving on so unashamedly retro.

4.0 out of 5 stars An historic sound.,
It reminded me of my youth in the seventies. A mix of blues, soul and mowtown all together. This man will go far even if he is an odie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impossible,
The impossible just happened - I found a recent LP that stands up to the music of the 60s and 70s. Now I want to know why I didn't hear about this until 2013.

4.0 out of 5 stars Otis Redding is back with Charles Bradley!,
Its an over simplified statement that Charles Bradley is an Otis Redding of his own right, but listening to the songs you will see some similarities and its a good CD to enjoy throughout all tracks! (which is a rarity these days)

5.0 out of 5 stars True Soul Legend,
This review is from: No Time For Dreaming [lp] (Includes download) [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Charles Bradley has a VOICE!! It's a voice that evokes years of pain, suffering and the human experience.
When I bought this cd, I couldn't listen to anything else. His is a great story and a great sound. Not to be missed.
