5.0 out of 5 stars 24-Carat-Solid-Soul-And-Funk-Nuggets!, 2 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daptone Gold (Audio CD)
I got just about everything from Daptone, and this is a mighty fine
collection from the label that bring you soul and funk that's so
juicy it GOT TO be squeezed!
Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings takes centre stage with seven songs, and you
get modern soul/funk classics such as "How long do I have to wait for you",
"Got a thing on my mind" and "Stranded in your love".
Sharon Jones! WHAT A WOMAN! The Dap-Kings! WHAT A BAND!
Miss Jones is a masterful soul vocalist with impeccable control, and she
got that raw, sweet gospel-trained voice that hit you somewhere deep.
This mama is cookin' with ease!

Some tracks are on CD for the first time, and amongst them you'll find
fantastic songs from Charles Bradley, Binky Griptite, Sharon Jones and
Lee Fields. Other outstanding songs by Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens
and Menahan Street Band makes this an essential buy for funk, soul and
groove merchants.
The only thing I hold against it, is that I would have choosen other
titles by The Budos Band. I think songs like "Origin of man", "T.I.B.W.F"
and "Aynotchesh Yererfu" are a lot stronger than the ones picked here.
You could say the same about a couple of the Dap-Kings tracks, but
that's minor criticism, because this is a regular goldmine, so you could
just as well shoot cotton bullets at the moon.

Famous last words:
If you are unfamiliar with Daptone, and for some strange reason find it
hard to trust a man who entitles himself Dr. Funk Alligatoor(heh heh!),
here are some other stuff I love: James Brown, Fela Kuti, John Lee
Hooker, Nina Simone, Ann Peebles, Tom Waits, Pavement, Pixies, PJ
Harvey, Bill Callahan, Sparklehorse, Wu-Tang Clan & Beck.

Well, if that didn't make it easier your taste is too expensive to repair!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 30 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daptone Gold (Audio CD)
I bought this album for my boyfriend as a stocking filler for christmas. we are a young couple who loves that whole funk/soul/jazz/blues type of music which is very hard to find these days since dub and lady gaga has taken over the music scene.
This is for old souls who enjoy listening to something a bit different to repetitive pop and diva wannabes competing with each other to get to number 1. This album has alot of character and soul.
It has a whole range of earthy beats. The Budos band are amazing as is Charles Bradley. it is the type of music you would enjoy if you had a long journey in your car, turn up the volume and be transported to another world of lush sounds that fuse modern muscians and old bluesy instruments beautifully. Track 8 is my boyfriend's favourite and I would have to agree as it has this awesome feel good beat to it that runs through your body like an electrical current and you can't resist having a bit of dance and a smile to.
I really do recommend this album to anyone who loves soulful sounds that reminds them of the old music of howlin wolf, etta James, BB King and Muddy waters.

If you like funky bass lines, and a certain `southern soul' sound, you'll like this compilation; this CD is remarkable, in that each track is so good, when compared to the next. A worthwhile purchase for any fan of funk or soul.
