5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired 13 Jan 2014
By Angel Delta TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are the ultimate in retro funk and soul recalling the classic sounds of sixties R & B but with a contemporary edge. With a little less funk and a little more soul "Give The People What They Want" is the band's 5th studio album since 2002 and Jones seems to get better with every outing.

From the soaring, soulful and sublime "Making Up And Breaking Up" and the wistful beauty of "We Get Along" to the horn infused balladry of "Slow Down Love" and the lilting, staccato of "Get Up And Get Out" this is the sound of Jones at the top of her game and nobody plays it better.

The band has backed Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse (on her first US tour) and it delivers the essential sounds of funk and soul without ever descending to being just a copy cat outfit. This is a confident and dramatic band delivering a fresh, crisp and faultless backing to ten original songs and Jones' peerless voice.

It's a big band in every sense with organ, glockenspiel, piano, baritone sax, trumpet, trombone, tenor sax, drums and congas and the production values ensure a tight sound that complements the soul in Sharon's voice to perfection.

The penultimate track, "People Don't Get What They Deserve" is the essence of this beautiful album: brash, brassy, sophisticated, stylish and exciting. It is a powerful reminder that Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings is an inspired act that combines voice, rhythm, harmony and musical excellence and cuts to the very heart of sweet soul music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The latest serving from ms Jones and the Boys 27 Jun 2014
Format:Vinyl
I heard a review and interview from Sharon jones on BBC radio Scotland for this Her latest LP I hadn't heard of her up to this point but was struck by the quality of music from a bygone time I have managed to get 4 of the 5 albums realised on vinyl so far all for £10 each which is great as iam sure vinyl junkies out there know most now cost between£15 to £35 which to me is a lot to fork out for new works or old releases. I do recommend this album to anyone into 60s soul and r&b a new slant on classic dance music

It was not as good as anticipated but I'm sure it will grow on me. I have been impressed with the Dap Kings live but I had hoped for more polished production values.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharon Jones at her best 8 Feb 2014
By PJS
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Whatever problems beset Sharon Jones during the past year have been shaken off, dusted down and blown away by this fabulous album. You know what you get with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings but this seems a little sharper, she is more powerful than ever and the orchestra/band simply slick and cool. Recommended listening at a loud volume, be prepared to jig about too.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!! 12 July 2014
By Fee772
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
A breath of fresh air! A wonderful, soulful and energetic album. Highly recommended! Sharon Jones has a powerful and charasmatic voice that exudes confidence, personality and experience ... Yet it does not detract attention from the beautifully arranged instruments and unique composition of these tracks. My heart has been yearning for music like this for a long time - at last I have finally found fulfilment!!! 5 stars all the way*****
