Interview: Charles Bradley is a “Victim of Love”

If 2011′s No Time For Dreaming was the dark soul introduction to the world of Charles Bradley, this year’s Victim of Love is the light heart of the matter, a raw and psychedelic look at soul from the vintage perspective of “The Screaming Eagle of Soul.” More than merely a soul revivalist, the former James Brown impersonator delivers a deeply honest and straightforward project, backed by his highly capable Menahan Street Band and slathered with the now trademark Daptone retro-soul sauce. Victim of Love is meant to be taken literally, a rare and continued opportunity for a sexagenarian to finally get his chance in the soulful sun – something the album proves that he’s both appreciative of and not taking lightly.
