Daptone, 2018. New Copy ... $5.99
Raw soul from the James Hunter Six – right up there the best of his recordings for Daptone! "I Don't Wanna Be Without You" is stripped down really nicely, letting James's sweetly gritty voice carry the vibe, as it should for an intimate song, but it's backed by the coolest vintage ...

Daptone, 2008. New Copy ... $4.99
A very cool remake of this cut from Sharon Jones – produced by Ticklah here with a sweetly dubby vibe!
