Charles Bradley :: No Time For Dreaming

Lee Fields, Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley. All three of these names are grouped into what is collectively known in 2011 as the retro-soul movement.   Not that this style of music ever really went away, but on a commercial level it did find itself largely supplanted in the early 80s by slick production and a gloss that had little, of anything, to do with STAX, Muscle Shoals and the other seminal core scenes originally associated with the genre. But like anything, if one pulls the curtains back a bit, it's not hard to find the regional pockets . . .
