Good Times indeed, bad times who knows?!
Elston Gun, with the help of their friends Andrew Moore and Sven Adams.
Getting back into posting I will ease myself and you gradually into it: one clip at a time. Keeps you coming back for more, hopefully!
Here’s the next clip of Charles Bradley at the St.James cabaret in Wellington.
and here Misty Mountain Hop by Led Zeppelin is given the treatment!
At the beginning of this year I had the wonderful opportunity to see Charles Bradley live in Wellington. The year before I had seen the documentary about him and really got into his music. And while discovering his music I found a lot of new favourites: Menahan Street Band (his recording band), Antibalas and Sharon Jones. All with Daptone records, a NY based outfit.
I REALLY enjoyed his first record ‘No Time For Dreaming’ and wondered what a live performance of these songs would be like. So when the gig came up I didn’t hesitate to buy my tickets.
What a night! I’m a live gig kinda girl, when I go to a show I don’t expect to hear the sound as immaculate as on the record, but want to see some sweat and tears. Some emotions, interactions with the audience, the live feed between artist and audience that can make a room feel electric and make everyone feel alive to the point of exploding.
Well, considering his heavy touring schedule and age, he did deliver what I had expected! I loved the night and even though some of the stage antics proved a tad too much for some, and personally I was glad I wasn’t dead center in front of the stage, I was more than happy for having organized this particular night out and seen the man in person.
As for video footage, I was only able to record with my little point&shoot, which means light control and sound recording is more than mediocre and I couldn’t keep it as steady as I would’ve liked. But here it is anyway.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
