Ain't Nothin' But A Party!


Like down in the basement. Cocktails. Dancing. Old school soul & R&B. Download all three Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. Call the neighbors. Have a party on a Saturday night til Sunday morning. Then go to church.

Great Find


I downloaded every album I could find with these guys. Talk about good stuff. BE CAREFUL AND DON'T DOWNLOAD #11. Its not 10 minutes long, its only three mintes with 7 minutes of silence. You can find another version on one of their compliation disks.

Sharon Jones is Gonna Be Just Fine

By Amanda Petrusich, Contributor

Sharon Jones paws through her handbag and emerges with a pocket-sized, navy-blue vaporizer that vaguely resembles an up-market ballpoint pen — the kind a mid-level executive might get as a retirement gift. "Amanda, look, no smell," she says, taking a tiny puff. I mumble that I'm vaguely familiar with the technology. What I fail to tell her is that I do not possess the balls to smoke weed in the middle of a half-empty pub… more »

They Say All Music Guide

It’s hard to believe that Sharon Jones’ debut LP is a product of the year 2002, for several reasons. Given the excellent singles she recorded for Desco beginning in the late ’90s, it seems like she would have gotten the opportunity for a full-length sooner; plus, her brand of raw, heavy, hard-driving funk is such a throwback to the ’70s, and she pulls it off so well, that you wonder how she could have escaped that decade without at least a few rare, classic 45s (in the vein of labelmate Lee Fields). It’s not hard to believe she once made her living as a prison guard, based on the tough-as-nails, no-nonsense performances she belts out on Dap Dippin’ With Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, the first full-length release on Desco’s descendant, Dap-Tone. Backed by the Dap-Tone house band (a conglomeration of studio pros with connections reaching back to the Desco orbit), Jones delivers a storming set of tunes that would have sounded perfectly at home on the James Brown’s Original Funky Divas compilation. The style and quality are pretty consistent all the way through, but it’s hard not to single out the nearly unrecognizable cover of Janet Jackson’s “What Have You Done for Me Lately,” which is transformed into a churning blast of funk full of biting guitars (and nary a synth or drum machine in sight). Other highlights include the chunky leadoff track, “Got a Thing on My Mind,” the would-be dance-craze “The Dap Dip,” the slow-burning “Make It Good to Me,” and the trials-and-tribulations tale “Ain’t It Hard.” Plus, label head Gabriel Roth throws in his usual “authentic” trappings — the fake live introduction running down Jones’ “hits,” the intentionally dated copy on the back cover — that make the whole package even more fun. All in all, a terrific debut. – Steve Huey
