The mural is one of many going up around the US and Europe to celebrate the release of Black Velvet, and the life and music of Charles Bradley. Black Velvet is the final album, a collection of 10 songs by the late, great Screaming Eagle of Soul, recorded during the sessions from each of his three albums. Lovingly assembled by his family and family at Dunham Records / Daptone Records.
