Making Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ “Answer Me”

With the revival already in progress, Sharon Jones’s 100 Days, 100 Nights brought the Dap-Kings vintage brand of rhythm and blues, funk and soul to growing numbers and growing attention, list wankery aside. The album’s closer, the funked up gospel of “Answer Me,” sends the LP out on the good foot, the pleas to Jesus somehow less desperate, more celebratory coming through Sharon’s pipes. Watch the Kings and their queen set the testimonial to tape, thanks to some captured-for-posterity cam work:

Sounds like a record to us, too. 100 Days, 100 Nights is out via Daptone Records. And some bonus, Sharon working up the gospel chops, in church, after the jump.
