Hereâ€™s a little advance notice of an upcoming re-release you might like. On June 3, Brooklynâ€™s own
R&B/Funk label, Daptone Records, is releasing a digital-only compilation of previously unreleased (i.e., never on an LP) 45s by greats like Lee Fields and Sugarman 3, the Mighty Imperials, and Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings.
Some key cuts include Sharon Jones’s cover of Kenny Rogers’s “I Just Dropped In to See What Condition My Condition Was In”â€”the classic tune best known to this generation as that tune from Big Leibowski, and a few really great Charles Bradley tunes like the one offered for download below and â€œThis Love Ain’t Big Enough for the Two of Us.â€ This is great BBQ music. Check it out. Oh, and donâ€™t miss the closing cut: â€œChe Che Cole,â€ a reworking of the salsa classic by Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra.
