Thank goodness for The Current, and Minnesota Public Radio.
Without it, I wouldn’t have stumbled upon the greatness that is Charles Bradley. I wouldn’t have investigated him further, and I wouldn’t have discovered just how much GREAT music he has put out over his career.
The world needs more music like this.
That’s not a political statement. That’s my personal and ever evolving musical preference. I think there’s a case to be made for what I like to refer to as “slow cooked music”, that is, music that isn’t over styled, perfected to a fault, and crafted specifically to sell and be consumed by the masses.
Maybe my tastes have evolved to abhor fast food music.
Maybe I’m just getting older.
Maybe I just love that Bradley is a bit of throwback.
Again, thank goodness for The Current, and Minnesota Public Radio. Without it, I wouldn’t have found that it all started with James Brown and that at times, he sounds just like him. I wouldn’t have felt weird making that comparison because, by all measures, Bradley stands out on his own.
Last, I wouldn’t be here insisting that you give him a listen. I wouldn’t be sharing “Changes”, a song I heard and instantly loved, only to discover that it, is in fact, a cover of a song by Black Sabbath.
One more time. Thank goodness for The Current, and Minnesota Public Radio.
