CD of the Week from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
Give The People What They Want is the fifth album from soul and funk revivalists Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. Sharon Jones was born in Augusta, Georgia, but moved to New York at an early age. A professional singer for many years, she found breakthrough success in middle age with the Dap-Kings. The group's heartfelt devotion to soul music is apparent on this eagerly-awaited new album, as it has been throughout their career on Brooklyn's Daptone Records.
