He performed in NZ a few years back - not a very flattering review as I recall, more screaming than singing!?

Very much after my era, he had a fine voice.

RIP.

It's a shame, as his recording career, started when he was in his early 60's. I reckon, had he recorded 40 years prior, he'd be a household name. RIP. Sad

Some years ago BBC 4 show an excellent docu on Charles Bradley.

Seth, you're right in saying Charles Bradley could have a household name if he started his career 40 years earlier.
