The very first recording by Miss Sharon Joens out on 45 soon!
Okay, Record Store Day has devolved to be a poor excuse for major labels to clog vinyl pressing plants reissuing endless crap that nobody wants to hear (Africa by Toto on picture disc? NOPE). But then Daptone drop a gem like this, with a beautiful cover design that doubles as a picture frame. WANT!.
"Presenting the very first recording by Sharon Jones! Original composition and lead vocals by Miss Jones, "Heaven Bound" and "Key to the Kingdom" is a soulful slice of 70's era gospel-funk recorded with E.L. Fields Gospel Wonders.
In addition, the 45 comes in a picture frame style sleeve with easel-back, which boasts a two-sided print of Sharon's High School photo, backed with a group shot of the Gospel Wonders and released on our reissue imprint, EVER-SOUL Records. A must have!"
Sharon Jones with E.L. Fields Gospel Wonders - "Heaven Bound" b/w "Key To The Kingdom" 45 - available at your local record store on Record Store Day - April 22nd, 2017.
