Charles Walker And The Dynamites Love Is Only Everything on LP
Charles Walker & The Dynamites, having cast their lot in 2008 with the head-spinning Kaboom! and in 2010 with the powerful Burn It Down, are now set to embark on Round 3 of their unfolding story with an ambitious new full-length album, Love Is Only Everything, their tightest set of soul yet!
Since their last release, The Dynamites & Charles Walker have spent two years in a furor of worldwide touring. Five tours of Europe, three of Australia, and virtually every weekend stateside spent “gettin’ up in the morning and making the world a funkier place,” to quote their nightly show-opening monologue mantra, account for their soul-sending whereabouts since their last long-player.
Also during that time, resulting from many seemingly destiny-laden chance meetings with Bettye LaVette on the festival circuit, Charles reconnected with his fellow soul music veteran, whose story had in many ways continued to unfold parallel to his. And now, both come together in this new century, for the first time on a recording, to display their incredible, ageless talents and powerful facilities as true soul music veterans in top form, on the leadoff single, “Yours and Mine.”
"Listening to Charles Walker & The Dynamites immediately whisked me back to Small's Paradise, 1964. It's so wonderful to hear Charles' voice is as strong as ever." - Bettye LaVette
“It’s not a nostalgia act, nor is it a tribute - it’s 100 percent genuine, all-original soul smoke and funk fire, every show turning whatever venue happens to be fortunate enough into an episode of ‘Showtime at the Apollo.” - Paste Magazine
