Pure Soul

20 01 2010

I just got done setting up the What I’m Diggin’ page and thought this was a good way to introduce, well… what I’m digging. Here’s some Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings doing it right. Amy Winehouse used The Dap Kings for her Back to Black album. I never could quite get into that album and then when I heard Sharon I  knew why. It just lacked authenticity… which, once you watch, you will see that Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings are dripping with the stuff. It truly is pure soul, you just can’t fake that.  The first one is an original while the second is a really good cover of an old First Edition hit you definitely know.  Yes, that First Edition, the one with Kenny Rogers.  Check it out.

Also check them out live from a French performance.  Good tune… great bass line. You got to see them live.

Here’s a cool rehearsal video from Daptone Studios too. Who knew she could play the keys like that?
