Though chronologically the material spans Charles' entire career, this is no anthology, greatest hits or other shallow rehashing of the songs that already made him famous. Rather, this album is a profound exploration through the less-travelled corners of the soulful universe that Charles and his longtime producer, co-writer and friend Tommy 'TNT' Brenneck created in the studio together over their decade-long partnership.

Charles Bradley / Budos Band / The Bullets Changes / Ain't It A Sin Limited 7" from the new soul legend Charles Bradley! covering Black Sabbath's Changes In one corner we have Sir Charles Bradley backed by the Salacious Sorcerers of Soulful-Doom, and undisputed pride of Staten Island - Daptone's beloved heavy metal enthusiasts, The Budos Band. Armed with a soulful, merciless version of Black Sabbath's classic ballad 'Changes' - you'd have a better chance in the ring with a hungry Mike Tyson on speed. In the other corner we have Sir Bradley, this time backed by old school cohorts, the Staten Island mercenaries of Funk, Dirt Rifle and the Bullets (the band responsible for such early Bradley hits as, 'This Love in't big enough For the both Of Us', and 'Now That I'm Gone'). The Bullets come out swinging with ‘Ain't it a Shame.’ In what should be considered the other A-side, this heavy new original tune is filled with the raw energy harnessed on classic Bradley singles, which can only be described as TKO caliber Razzle Dazzle.

Charles Bradley / LaRose Jackson Luv Jones / Change, Change, Change Two ace cuts from Charles Bradley & LaRose Jackson on Daptone. It was the annual Charles Bradley memorial day BBQ throw down, when Charles finally introduced LaRose Jackson to Tommy. "Tommeyy! This is the lady I was telling you about. You gotta hear her sang!" To which LaRose said, "This is the guy you were talking about? He don't look like no funky producer to me. He look like one of them rock & rollers." Well, our friend TNT invited LaRose and CB back to the old Dunham Sound Studio and set out to prove just how funky he could be. "What if I told you that curly haired dude over there was the baddest dr ummer you ever heard?" asked TNT to Rose. "Him? You guys are weird." The duets that unfolded that night are on this seven-inch piece of wax: Two instant funky pizza party classics Daptone 7" Out of Stock
Charles Bradley / The Inversions Whatcha Doing (To Me) / Strike Three Originally a stand-out album track from Charles Bradley's “Changes” long player - then titled "You Think I Don't Know (But I Know)" - Axelrod & Co. artfully transform the Soul groover into an early '70s reggae stroller, with Charles' signature plaintive vocals providing a beautiful juxtaposition to the lighthearted bounce of the Inversion's Island beat. Thankfully CB was able to hear this version before he passed, to which he said "Ooooooo! I LOVE IT!" We think you will too! Daptone 7" Out of Stock
