"Greetings, soul fans!" Within the opening seconds of Daptone Records's first retrospective, Daptone Gold
, one knows this will be a unique listening experience, especially coming at the end of the decade in which MP3s and iTunes were created. Daptone Gold
is a 23-track compilation of classics, rarities, and previously unreleased tracks from some of the soul revivalist label's acts, such as Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, The Budos Band, and Lee Fields, among other soul, funk, gospel and afrobeat musicians.
