Album of the Day – 01.31.14: Give the People What They Want

We end the week with Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings most recent release, Give the People What They Want, released on Jan. 14, 2014.

The album marks their fifth release, but is also a triumph for the group. The album was scheduled for release last August, but after being diagnosed in early 2013 with Stage II Pancreatic Cancer just after the album was finished, things were put on hold. Sharon has fought and overcome and is determined to do a tour for the album after her final treatments are finished up.

Give the People What They Want is a short 10 song album, with a powerful punch and proves that Jones is unstoppable.
