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.


Real sixties Stax/Atlantic soul has been pronounced dead for a few decades now but with the meteoric rise of Daptone that claim can be shoved back into the ground for hopefully a long time. Charles Bradley is the latest perfect offering coming out of their studios.


The man's soulful voice seems lifted out of the Memphis studios into the cradle of the warm Dap King sound. Horns that soulfully blow on `Golden Rule', a female chorus gospelling the chorus on `I Believe In Your Love' or the hammond's staccato riff on `Trouble in the Land' that also features a beautiful hornriff making you wish they would have made it a 5 minute instrumental and not a 1 minute interlude. `Lovin' You Baby' is the real classic 60's song which could have been sung by Percy Sledge. Soul is still coming back!




I saw this LP on a Rolling Stone best-of list for year-end LPs. "Lovin' You Baby" is one of my favorite tracks with Bradley's plaintive vocals strong and oozing longing in every bar, "No more bad dreams, baby; No more afraid to open the door and let you in."


"How Long" is another favorite of mine with a slow blues groove opening the track and Charles' vocals looking for salvation amidst trials and tribulations, "How long must you keep suffering like this? You know our people are suffering. They're looking for something to look up to; They're looking for a change."
