#608 :: LIVE Recording Wednesday :: Charles Bradley Tribute (Nov 5, 1948 – Sept 23, 2017)

This episode is dedicated to the 'Screaming Eagle Of Soul', the one and only Charles Edward Bradley (November 5, 1948 – September 23, 2017). A soul icon, a rare talent, a beautiful man. 
Charles Bradley was an American funk, soul, and R&B singer, signed to the Daptone Records label under the Dunham Records division. His performances and recording style were consistent with Daptone's revivalist approach, celebrating the feel of funk and soul music from the 1960s and 1970s. One review said he "echoes the evocative delivery of Otis Redding".

Bradley was the subject of the documentary, 'Soul of America', which premiered at South by Southwest in 2012. I totally recommend you see if, again, if you're already seen it.

Bradley died of stomach cancer in Brooklyn, New York, at the age of 68. He was surrounded by family and friends, including members of all the bands he worked closely with.

This is a two part episode. The first part was broadcast on The Blues Room, and the second part was broadcast on GO FEET! Radio. The songs selected for this tribute were mainly from LIVE performances on KEXP by Charles Bradley and his band.
