12 Songs, 39 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

From Rikers Island prison guard to queen of the throwback soul-funk scene, Sharon Jones sang for her entire life. She got her big break in the mid-'90s by collaborating with The Soul Providers, a group that eventually morphed into The Dap-Kings. After several much-loved 7-inches, they dropped Dap Dippin' with Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings in 2002, and the rest is history. With their righteously funky sound, they enamored fans around the globe, transcending language, race, and age differences thorough the power of good music. Soul Time! is their fifth album together, and it continues their tradition of ultra-soulful jams that transport you back to a simpler time when real singing and musical chops actually mattered. Every song here is great, bubbling with tight horn arrangements, gritty drums, roughneck guitar lines, and smooth organ vamps backing up Jones' timeless vocals. Check out "When I Come Home," "Inspiration Information," and "What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes?"
