It is a privilege to present to you, our esteemed Daptone Family, a selection of fan-favorites by thee legendary Sharon Jones and her Dap-Kings available for the first time on 45! Over the years Daptone H.Q. has been flooded with suggestions and requests for certain album tracks to be available on 45, so we've pressed up a few that are consistently at the top of the heap. "Keep On Looking", a track that debuted on SJDK's breakout album 100 Days, 100 Nights subsequently became a staple in the groups live set.  The incessant backbeat and tight horn arrangement, coupled with Miss Jones' powerful plea to a lost lover makes for unadulterated dance-floor fuego!  On the flip is a new discovery of sorts. While digging through the tape archive we stumbled across a box labeled "Natural Born Lover - Instrumental with Strings". Much to our delight what we found is precisely that:  an unreleased instrumental version of the SJDK classic, featuring a string arrangement that was cut from its initial release. And as if the nasty drum break at the top wasn't enough to make this a shoe-in addition to Dj boxes and playlists alike, the quirky string arrangement places this one soundly into "must have" territory.
Next up we have a track that in recent years has been requested more than any other SJDK track. After it’s original release on the Soul of a Woman album, "Come and be a Winner"'s mellow, mid-tempo groove and positive message swiftly grabbed the attention of fans and critics - ultimately placing the song squarely at the top of year-end playlists across the globe. And for those of you want to keep the groove going
