MP3: Charles Bradley – “Strictly Reserved For You”

January 29, 2013 No comments yet


Daptone Records affiliate Charles Bradley is back and sounding as good as ever with his recently released single “Strictly Reserved For You” which is from his upcoming album Victim of Love, out in April. Sounding like this at age 64, one would think that he has been industry for a long time but he released his first album just two years ago. Charles had a hell of a 2012 on the road and at festivals and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down here anytime soon.

I am loving the hell out of Charles Bradley’s nostalgic sound. With the help of members from Menahan Street Band, we get this great funk sound that continuously becomes overshadowed by the kind of hits we get today. Super glad we have soul revivalists like Charles and the Daptone family to remind us how real music originated. I highly recommend checking out his first album, No Time For Dreaming, if you already haven’t. Stream the first single off the second album below!
