Charles Bradley & The Menahan Street Band :: Stay Away

Yup, kids, that’s Charles Bradley covering Nirvana’s Stay Away.”   To say I had reservations about this pairing would be an understatement, thankfully my friend Matt would have none of it and threw it on a couple of weeks back while playing records at his house one night. In the hands of Bradley and the Menahan Street Band, “Stay Away” morphs into a swampy psychedelic soul jam — one totally indiscernible from the original. Trust me when I say “Monkey see, monkey do” never sounded so right.

The cover is culled from Spin magazine’s tribute to the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind.
