Over the years Daptone H.Q. has been flooded with suggestions and requests for certain album tracks to be available on 45, so we've gone ahead and pressed up a few that are consistently at the top of the heap. First up we have "Keep On Looking," a track that debuted on SJDK's breakout album 100 Days, 100 Nights, which subsequently became a staple in the group's live set. The incessant backbeat and tight horn arrangement, coupled with Miss Jones's powerful plea to a lost lover provides unadulterated dance-floor fuego!
On the flip is a new discovery of sorts. While digging through the tape archive we stumbled across a box labeled "Natural Born Lover- Instrumental with Strings." Much to our delight what we found is precisely that: an unreleased instrumental version of the SJDK classic, featuring a string arrangement that was cut from its initial release. And as if the nasty drum break at the top wasn't enough to make this a shoo-in addition to DJ boxes and playlists alike, the gorgeous quirky string arrangement places this one soundly into "must have" territory.
