7" Series 730: Charles Bradley & Menahan Street Band - No Time For Dreaming

This single came out as an appetiser for the album of the same name. Unbelievably enough, both tracks are on the LP, so no “extra value” here. Well, apart from the fact that it’s a delicious slab of 7″ wax, of course.

Charles Bradley’s got quite an interesting story, making his recording debut after several decades of performing on the side, making a living as a chef. They even made a film about him: Soul Of America. Can’t wait to see that one.


7-inch series, part 695 – 3 Titans

3 Titans – College
label: Dunham
year: 2010
side a: College
side b: The Life Of A Scholar

3 Titans - College

Fifth graders rapping about life in college. Sounds like something that is funny for about five minutes, but 1. the boys can rap, 2. it’s on Dunham, which is a subsidiary label of Daptone, and 3. the backing band is the Menahan Street Band so this is fantastic.

See the boys in action in this video for “The Life Of A Scholar”:
