Charles Bradley's "The World Is Going Up In Flames"
Submitted by alex.waters.gor... on February 25, 2011
A while ago we received a record called Daptone Gold, a compilation album featuring the best unreleased tracks from artists on the Daptone Label. Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings are likely the most famous on the bill, but through this album I got to know other hidden gems like The Budos Band and Charles Bradley. On my overnight show on Monday, I played "The World Is Going Up In Flames," the first song from Charles Bradley's No Time For Dreaming and it completely blew me away. Like SJ&TDK, Bradley makes pitch-perfect soul from the 1960s that's so genuine that it's hard to resist. Take a look at the video:
No Time For Dreaming dropped last month and you can get it here. "ThIs World Is Going Up In Flames" is the first single, but "I Believe In Your Love" is another highlight.
For fans of Sharon Jones or any throwback 1960s soul, Charles Bradley is well-worth checking out.
