Get Funky! Note-Perfect Emotion! Soulful Writing! Upbeat!

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are a funk/soul band. They are signed to Daptone Records, where the Dap-Kings are the house band. They are widely thought to be spearheads of a revivalist movement that aims to capture the essence of funk/soul music as it was at its height in the mid-1960s to mid-1970s. Part of the way this is achieved is to shun modern digital recording methods in favour of using traditional analogue recording equipment. The type of instruments used by the band may also be considered limited to those that would have been available up until the mid seventies.

As the top featured act in the Daptone Funk & Soul Revue, Sharon Jones has earned a reputation as the Baddest Soul Sister on the circuit, electrifying audiences from coast to coast with her Funky Dynamic Soul Energy. I mean she comes on Strong and Funky!

The funkier side of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings. The indisputable reigning champions of Soul give 12 blazing hot tracks – made famous in their infamous Soul revue – their long overdue album debut. Majority previously unreleased including exclusive 45-only tracks such as "Genuine Pts. 1 & 2", "He Said I Can", "When I Come Home", and "Longer & Stronger."

"Having cemented their reputation in the UK as being Mark Ronson’s house band and featuring strongly on Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black album, their albums have never quite captured their full force as a live act. Soul Time!, a compilation of singles, B sides and live favourites of the past decade comes pretty close though, and serves as a perfect introduction to the band. Showcasing bandleader Bosco Mann’s soulful writing, Soul Time! scores with its note-perfect emotion and keening brass arrangements. Genuine (Parts 1 and 2), a single in 2004, opens here, complete with its fade and return; it sounds like something from James Brown’s People label, and sets the album’s relentless, upbeat tone. New Shoes, written by guitarist Binky Griptite, is a pounding northern soul-influenced stomper... The lone cover on Soul Time! is a beautiful, tender reading of Shuggie Otis’ Inspiration Information that fills out the sketchiness of the original without losing any of its tentative, fragile wonder." - Daryl Easlea, BBC Review
