Record Store Day, as you may know celebrates the culture of the independently owned and operated record store by bringing together music fans, artists and thousands of independent record stores through live, in-store events and singles specifically released for the occasion and many times those singles include rare or unexpected collaborations – or unusual covers. The internationally known, purveyors of funk and soul Daptone Records released a 7 inch single which featured the “Screaming Eagle of Soul” himself, Charles Bradley being backed by two different Daptone acts, the fantastic Afrobeat band, Budos Band and the Bullets. Side A has Bradley being backed by the Budos Band as they do a slow-burning, mournful and extremely soulful cover of Black Sabbath’s “Changes."
