‘Daptone Gold II’ Comp Boasts Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Budos Band

 

Daptone Records will release Daptone Gold II, the soul label’s second greatest hits compilation featuring Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, the Budos Band, Antibalas and more. The follow-up to the label’s acclaimed Daptone Gold collection in 2009 will arrive on September 18th, and like its predecessor, the double-LP set features many of Daptone’s favorite tracks alongside rarities and unreleased cuts.

In addition to 16 of Daptone’s greatest hits from throughout the label’s 13-year history, the compilation also includes three non-LP tracks that were only released as 45-rpm singles – Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ “Little Boys With Shiny Toys,” Charles Bradley and LaRose Jackson’s “Luv Jones” and the Como Mamas’ “Out Of The Wilderness” – plus two unreleased cuts: The Dap-Kings’ “Thunderclap” and Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens’ “You Got To Move.”

Daptone Gold II will be available as both a CD and double-LP, with the latter packaged in a silver foil gatefold sleeve and comes with a poster, liner notes and iron-on. You can also preorder a digital copy of the album now through Amazon.
