Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – Better Things To Do (2010)

YouTube – Amazon – iTunes – Discogs

I am partial to my soul music: Motown, Atlantic, Stax, Philly and the rarer stuff too. When I first heard this song, I thought that it was a new find from the 60s. And that’s a compliment in my book. This is no borrowing; this is pure revival. Apparently they used the technology of the day to get the sound. It’s a throwback and I like it a lot. Sharon Jones’s vocals are forceful, the band is tight and the tune is oh-so-catchy.
