Charles Bradley “Heartaches And Pain”
from No Time for Dreaming (Daptone Records 2010) —Written by Charles Bradley & Thomas Brenneck (who also produced this album) and found on his 2011 debut release. Easily one of my Top 10 releases of 2011, so far, and he is an absolute force of nature to see perform live.
