No, this not a reissue from the 1960’s or 70’s. This is new. This is part of a revival movement, revitalizing soul and r’n’b of the good old days. Nevertheless, it is very contemporary music of our time. And, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings deliver an amazing album. Sadly, the release comes first after Sharon Jones died in 2016 after a longer struggle with cancer.

I simply love this collection of songs. “On her final, posthumously released album, Jones alternates powerful ballads with the upbeat dance numbers that were staples of her live shows, confirming her stature a contemporary soul-music icon.” (Pitchfork)
