Editorial Reviews

Charles Bradley's voice has evolved from a lifetime of paying dues, having nomadically labored for decades at various day jobs from Maine to Alaska singing and performing in his spare time before re-settling in his hometown Brooklyn and eventually finding a musical home at Dunham/Daptone. In his distinctively rough-hewn timbre one hears the unmistakable voice of experience each note and gruff infection a reflection of his extended, sometimes rocky, personal path. It s only fitting that No Time For Dreaming s producer Thomas ''Tommy TNT'' Brenneck (also a member of The Dap-Kings and The Budos Band) would recognize in Bradley a kindred musical spirit a singer whose performances exude both raw power and poignant beauty. Recorded at Dunham Studios, and mixed at Daptone Records internationally revered ''House of Soul'' Studios, No Time For Dreaming is the inspired sound of an awakening.

Another fantastic entry in the Daptone/Dunham catalog, and this time it's Charles
Bradley's time to shine, backed up by Dap-Kings guitarist Brenneck and his
supersoulsolid Menahan Street Band.

A voice doesn't come much rawer than Bradley's. The man has definite soul power,
sometimes he hits like a roll of thunder, and it's easy to understand that he
once fronted a James Brown tribute band. The man sure can holler!

In the end I think it sounds a bit too similar to get top honours, and maybe
The Menahan Street band could have taken a more adventurous approach to
some of the songs, but that is a negligible complaint, as you will find a lot
of truly great songs on it.

Standouts: the soul classic The World Is Going Up In Flames, I Believe In
Your Love(with sweet horn stabs, and backing vocals from The Gospel Queens),
No Time For Dreaming, the truly amazing How Long and the album closer,
Heartaches And Pain, a sad, autobiographical tale about a family member
killing his brother.

Put in in the basket. Payday is long overdue for Charles Bradley. Amazon should
even charge you over prize for this one, so we can be assured the man drive
according to his class, in a golden limo soulsmobile.

I can't believe how few reviews there are on Amazon for this fantastic CD.
Real, authentic soul. Gets better with each listen.
You can hear the trials of Bradley's life in every note. This surpasses anything by James Brown in my opinion.
There's Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Al Green and now Charles Bradley is ready to take his place alongside them.
Buy this and you will not regret it.

I was introduced to this record by a former colleague of mine. This is classic soul from a wonderful talent. You can tell Charles Bradley sings from the heart and means every word he sings. What is delivered is a classic sound full of feeling. Credit is also due to the incredible backing band and producer that recreate the sound and vibe of some of the best albums of the 60's / 70's.

Real sixties Stax/Atlantic soul has been pronounced dead for a few decades now but with the meteoric rise of Daptone that claim can be shoved back into the ground for hopefully a long time. Charles Bradley is the latest perfect offering coming out of their studios. The man's soulful voice seems lifted out of the Memphis studios into the cradle of the warm Dap King sound. Horns that soulfully blow on `Golden Rule', a female chorus gospelling the chorus on `I Believe In Your Love' or the hammond's staccato riff on `Trouble in the Land' that also features a beautiful hornriff making you wish they would have made it a 5 minute instrumental and not a 1 minute interlude. `Lovin' You Baby' is the real classic 60's song which could have been sung by Percy Sledge. Soul is still coming back!

I had never even heard of Charles Bradley when i noticed his CD was in the Rolling Stone's list of the top 50 in 2011. I read their review and decided to take a chance on his CD. A great decision. This guy can really sing with emotion. Plus his back-up band knows how to play many different instruments. Which is something u don't hear often enough.
