✨✧ Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsNaturally ... CD
Daptone, 2005. Used ... $6.99
The long-anticipated second album from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings is a stunner – undoubtedly stronger than the group's fantastic debut – and a record that not only transcends the late model funk revival genre, but stands on footing as solid as the best hard funky soul of the late 60s and early 70s! If you're expecting a rehash of the heavy funk jams that burned on the Dap Dippin' album you won't be disappointed, but get ready for a deep, natural (hence the title) soulfulness that not only caught us off guard, but really forms the big, hard-beating heart of the album. The frothing, frenetic funk is as tight as ever, and in spots just as furious, but the attention to songcraft this time out is just as searing and indelible. The eight piece Dap Kings continue to be the best band in the land – with El Michels on baritone sax, Neal Sugarman on tenor, Homer Steinweiss on drums, not-so-secret weapon Bosco Mann on bass, vibes and piano. Guest appearances include fellow Daptone powerhouse vocalist Lee Fields on the the duet "Stranded In Your Love", and strings courtesy of the Bushwick Philharmonic, but make no mistake, this is the band's album. Amazing stuff from in indispensable group – an album that'll keep spinning in our circles for as many years as the great albums by the gritty soul forefathers do! Tracks include "How Do I Let A Good Man Down?", "Natural Born Lover", "My Man Is A Mean Man", a soulful reading of Woodie Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land", "Your Thing Is A Drag", "Fish In A Dish" and "All Over Again".

VariousSoul Men – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... CD
Stax, 2008. Used ... $3.99
Classic soul and contemporary cuts – but mostly all numbers that have an older soul mode that fits the spirit of this Stax-styled film! The package is put together in support of the Bernie Mac and Samuel Jackson Soul Men film – and it features some great remakes of older Stax/Volt numbers, done with a surprisingly deep soul groove – plus a few older cuts from the label mixed in for good measure. We're honestly surprised how good most of the new recordings sound (we'll admit we were suspicious at first) – and although we've yet to see the film, we're guessing there may well be more lasting power here in the soundtrack! Titles include "Soul Music" by Anthony Hamilton, "I'm Your Puppet" by John Legend with Samuel Johnson & Bernie Mac, "You Don't Know What You Mean" by Sugarman 3 with Lee Fields, "Water" by Meshell Ndegeocello, "Never Can Say Goodbye (Soul Men redux)" by Isaac Hayes, "Boogie Ain't Nuttin But Getting Down" by Samuel Jackson & Bernie Mac, "Private Number" by Leela James & Chris Pierce, "Just Dropped In" by Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and "I've Never Found A Girl" by Eddie Floyd.
