Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings' Retreat's a treat
When Sharon Jones was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year she and the band were just about to release a new album and head back out on tour. If you've ever seen her live you'll know this is a big deal. James Brown may have been the hardest working man in show business but in full flow Sharon makes him look a bit of a slacker. Let's just say that the girl can shake a tail feather or two. Happily the energy she unleashes onstage seems to have been put to good use kicking the big C and her record label, the fabulous Daptone Records, have just announced that she's been given the all clear. Hurrah! To celebrate they've popped up a new video and song from the delayed album (which'll finally see the light of day in January 2014). Enjoy.
PS: Oh I can't resist it, here she is shakin' what the good Lord done give her...watch and learn Miley Cyrus...watch and learn.
