Australian pressing of this 2011 collection of rarities and non-album tracks from the Queen Of Modern Soul. Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have developed an international reputation as the #1 group on todays Soul scene. Soul Time is an exploration of the full range of their dynamic sound through 12 songs handpicked by the Daptone Records gang, each one a precious exclusive. The needle drops on Genuine Pts. 1 & 2, a supercharged Funk arrangement that evokes the late Godfather not only with the spirited syncopation of the Dap-Kings rhythms, but also with the raw power of Jones voice. It is performances such as these that have earned her the moniker the Female James Brown. Though it has long been one of their best-selling singles, it makes its album debut here. Longer and Stronger, written for her 50th birthday, is a deep mid-tempo Soul celebration of the strength and determination with which Sharon Jones has earned her long overdue success. Whether youre a lifetime fan, or just getting turned on, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have yet again made a record that will blow your mind.
