Fourth and final album from late soul legend. Daptone / Dunham celebrate the life of Bradley with a lovingly assembled chronology of Charles' career. Capturing the breadth of the musicians appeal, the album features deep cuts of previously unreleased scorchers such as "Can't Fight the Feeling," "Fly Little Girl" and "I Feel a Change", recorded during the sessions from each of his three albums, as well as single-only covers of Nirvana's "Stay Away" and Neil Young's "Heart of Gold", among others. While the album isn’t as tight as earlier releases, it makes up for it by showcasing Bradley’s ability to segue to any soul style, and this album will keep you moving along to the Screaming Eagle of Soul. Fans of Sharon Jones, Lee Fields, Leon Bridges already know.
