“Heart of Gold” – Charles Bradley

Video

This sounds like it came from Muscle Shoals circa 1967, but it was actually recorded in 2011. This is Charles Bradley’s Stax-Volt -style cover of Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold” and it is damn magnificent. From Bradley’s stellar album “No Time for Dreaming.”

“Stay Away” – Charles Bradley & The Menahan Street Band

One of my favorite covers EVER!  Imagine Wilson Pickett coming back from the grave and singing his a– off, covering a Nirvana song. Yes, this is as awesome as it sounds and THIS is how you cover a Nirvana song. Kurt is surely smiling (and dancing) wherever he is.
