Live at 45 RPM – Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings

The next installment of Live at 45 RPM features the mighty Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings’ 7 inch release of Ain’t Nobody. If you follow Daptone Records you can tell this is a departure from the traditional blue and grey color scheme on the label artwork.

This single was released on January 5th for the Soul Brunch Listening Party, across the country at select records stores to promote their Give the People What They Want LP.

I saw Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings on their promotional tour for the new album last week here in Austin, and it was a truly stunning and inspirational night. Sharon had a recent bout with cancer which delayed the release of the album (I think the original release date was late Summer/early Fall 2013). She went through chemotherapy at the end of 2013, and has been kicking ass ever since. Her performance was truly amazing and after their encore she was on the floor with the crowd taking pictures and signing autographs with everyone. Her spirits were so high and she was so grateful to all of us for our support….a truly phenomenal night!
