Album Review - Various Artists, "Daptone Gold"

The rawest, funkiest, most soulful label since Stax went under - Brooklyn-based Daptone Records - releases a best of collection that really earns the title. It's all good: jaw-dropping instrumental and vocal talent, tight arrangements, sterling recording; I'll just point out the previously vinyl-only/unreleased/rarities here.

Play: 2++(great, insane sax), 6+++(amazing ballad, will break you), 7, 10++(horn hit), 12++, 14+, 18+++(unbelievably great instrumental), 19+++(cover), 22+
