About this item
Since the release of 2011’s award winning debut, 'No Time for Dreaming', Charles Bradley has transformed from a rising star in the Daptone galaxy into a bona-fide headliner, now affectionately known across the globe as "The Screaming Eagle of Soul."
The raw emotion and soulfulness of Bradley's voice lifts him up among the greats of the golden age of Soul - Otis, JB, Wilson Pickett, and Darrell Banks. Anyone who has had the privilege of hearing him sing has experienced how Bradley can captivate an entire audience with a simple "Ooooo..."
Bradley and writer/producer/multi-instrumentalist Thomas “TNT” Brenneck returned to Dunham studios and recorded the most exciting Daptone release to date, Victim of Love. On this album, Bradley moves past his "Heartaches and Pain" to the great promise of hope and love. Though quite at home among the music that has affirmed Daptone as the world’s #1 authority on Soul Music, Victim of Love proves to be a genre-bending masterpiece, picking up where the early 70’s Temptations left off and edging boldly forward into psychedelic soul exploration.
The popularity of 'No Time For Dreaming' resulted in an appearance on 'Later With Jools Holland' in 2012 and such glowing reviews as:
-Lead 4/5 Boxed Review In Mojo : “The Grit And Gusto Of Otis Redding, The Raw Power Of James Brown, The Smoulder And Shudder Of James Carr, Together They Make An Intoxicating Sound.
-Lead 4/5 Review In Q Magazine : “There's A New/Old Soul Man On The Block. 'No Time For Dreaming' Has The Gritty Feel Of The Real Thing, A Man Who Has Known Mostly Hard Times And Tells It With A Pleading, Throaty Roar And Blood-Curdling Scream Worthy Of James Brown . A Real Find.”
