Featured Release This Week From Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

Sep 11, 2016

Brooklyn-based Sharon Jones and her longtime backing group The Dap-Kings (along with other artists on their Brooklyn label, Daptone Records) have a lot to do with the soul revival of recent years.  Miss Sharon Jones! is a new documentary film, telling the story of the singer's 2013 battle with cancer, and her triumphant return to the stage around the time of the 2014 release of the Grammy-nominated album Give The People What They Want.  The soundtrack album of the film is our Featured Release this week.  It functions as a kind of "Best of Sharon Jones" record, with early singles and tracks from several of her previous albums, plus the inclusion of a new Sharon Jones song- "I'm Still Here."
