Charles Bradley – I Hope You Find ( The Good Life)

clash-83-charles-bradley

For Record Store Day 2014, soul singer, Charles Bradley, released a four-song 12-inch titled “I Hope You Find (The Good Life).” It’s a super chilled, dub-flavoured soul ballad with Bradley’s pleading vocals backed by The Menahan Street Band and The Sha La Das. Bradley is one of my favorite artists recording for New York’s Dap Tone Records right now.

Also, if you don’t know about Bradley’s fascinating life story, check out the trailer for a documentary about him below.  The film is from 2012 and tells the story of the former James Brown impersonator who was homeless at one point and didn’t get his break in music until he was in his sixties.
