Soul-singer Charles Bradley made a big splash a few years ago with his album NO TIME FOR DREAMING. You might recall that album got a lot of attention due in part to two really interesting covers. One was a version of Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold” and the other was a fantastic rendition of Nirvana’s “Stay Away.”
Well Bradley is back and so are his oddball covers! This time he chose Black Sabbath’s “Changes.” I’d love this guy for nothing else but his song choices were it not for the fact that every single time he does one of these covers he knocks it right out of the park. His version of “Changes” is amazing. I’m not even sure it’s fair to call his version a cover because he damn near makes the song his. Charles Bradley’s latest album VICTIM OF LOVE came out and I sorely need hear it, even though this song isn’t on it. Apparently his version of “Changes” was a Record Store Day exclusive single. Either way, more attention needs to be given to this guy, he’s great.
