While many artists have come and gone, why have Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings only continued to grow steadily in popularity around the world? How can they continue to sell-out huge theaters, headline festivals, and sell hundreds of thousands of records year after year with neither major label support nor a single radio hit? The reason is simple: There is no other band around today that plays with the rhythm, feeling, or explosive power of the Dap-Kings, and there is no other singer that can match the energy and honest soul of Sharon Jones.
The culmination of these soulful attributes has never been so meticulously manifested as on their latest waxen treasure, 'Give The People What They Want'. It's all here, from "Retreat!", the lushly orchestrated barnstormer, to the feel-good cruiser "We Get Along", and the floaty balladry of "Slow Down Love".
'Give The People What They Want' is an exercise in Soul Music of the highest order, but more than that, it's a document of what happens when you fill a studio with some of the finest musicians and songwriters in the world and let the tape roll.
