Charles Bradley Change For The World / Revelation First single to come from Charles Bradley's album Changes! The Screaming Eagle of Soul has landed! In anticipation for the forthcoming full length ‘Changes’, it brings us great pleasure to ring in 2016 with ‘Change for the World’ b/w ‘Rev- elation’. On this single, Charles, backed by Menahan Street Band, take the psychedelically seasoned soul flirted with on 2013’s ‘Victim of Love’, and expands on it. Marrying heavy rhythm and tape delay with Charles’ pleading vocal performance, it lurks in the ether, engaging your psyche in ways that will make you think there’s more to this life than previously imagined. It’s a Revelation! Daptone 7"

Bob & Gene If This World Were Mine Remastered edition with two songs that weren't on the previous version titled I Really Love You and It's Not What You Know (It's Who You Know). An archival collection of some of the sweetest soul from New York in the 1960's. In 1967, two teenage friends, Bobby Nunn and Eugene Copland, were the stars of Mo Do Records; a Buffalo, NY label run by Bobby’s dad, William Nunn. As BOB & GENE they recorded several sides for the label along with other local gospel and soul artists and the dozen or so 45s on Mo Do play back with unconventional humanity and anomalous presence. William’s dream of a Bob & Gene album would never be realised in his lifetime, but in February 2007 we jumped at the chance to pull together these sweet and soulful recordings into an album that’s remained a Daptone favorite ever since. A decade later and we’re thrilled that it’s back in the racks at your favorite purveyor of soulful platters. Daptone LP
