RIP Charles Bradley

Daptone Records released this two-track 7″ on random colored vinyl last month. It features Mr. Charles Bradley & The Inversions performing Whatcha Doing (To Me), b/w just The Inversions performing Strike Three. Some yahoo is selling this 7″ on Discogs for $74.99, and it was just released some 12 days ago. Some people… am I right?! Regardless, RIP Charles Bradley.

Complete Budos

BudosAll hail a complete discography! Save for the 7 inches, that is. Paying full price these days for a new record is something of a scarcity among my close-knit community, but when it comes to The Budos band and their shadowy brand of afro-funk, price is no object. So far The Budos Band (their first) gets the most spins, but The Budos Band III is not too far behind. For deep, dirty, diabolical grooves, one could argue, it doesn’t get much better than The Budos Band.
