A Quick Musical Interlude

I found the record label called Daptone Records, based out of California, which records bands in a very 60s sort of way, particularly via its Penrose imprint. I’m enjoying what I’m hearing and thought you might as well. Here’s a couple tracks for you.
Love Daptone and its artists (RIP Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley).
Daptone is wonderful, and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are phenomenal.
The Dap Kings played a lot of the music for Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black album as well.
(Also, HBOMax currently has the Miss Sharon Jones documentary if anyone is interested. Easily one of my favorite music docs)
Wow. They managed to hit exactly those qualities of 1960s music that I like the least.
I’m swaying & swooning…
As a child of the 60’s I have to say that this is what I still listen to and am glad to hear that there are still those who can appreciate the style and do it justice.
