Charles Bradley - Black Velvet
Vinyl LP pressing, includes digital download. This 10-track album pulls together previously unreleased material from sessions for each of Bradley's three albums, 2011's No Time for Dreaming, 2013's Victim of Love, and 2016's Changes. The songs include a duet with LaRose Jackson called "Luv Jones", an alternate full band take of "Victim of Love", and a trio of covers: Nirvana's "Stay Away", Neil Young's "Heart of Gold", and Rodriguez's "Slip Away". The title track is an Menahan Street Band instrumental for which Bradley never got the chance to record vocals.
