RIYL: Aretha Franklin, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, The Supremes

Label: Daptone Records

The announcement of Sharon Jones’ final studio album, Soul of a Woman, is as bittersweet as it gets.  Any kind of new music from Jones and her Kings is a gift that keeps on giving, but this one will be the last.  Expect soul-stirring arrangements from one of the genre’s best backing bands as the foundation to one of its finest vocalists.  This stuff is top tier, ladies and gents.  Grade A, blue-chip, first-class, five-star.  This one ain’t to be missed.

Daptone Records has a limited supply of the album on turquoise wax for the collectors.  No word yet on quantity, but I imagine there will be quite a few to go around.  Check out first single Matter of Time below and grab your vinyl after the ‘buy’ link.
