SJDK - "There Was A Time” (Live at the Apollo)


This live video is just phenomenally good. Sharon Jones backed by an expanded Dap-Kings, at the Apollo. Rocking a James Brown song. Boom. Off the forthcoming live album out Oct 1st.

Daptone say "Of all the tunes played over the 3 sold-out nights at the World Famous Apollo Theater, SJDK's rendition of the James Brown classic, "There Was a Time", is a jaw-dropping example of how a band in their prime can take a classic and respectfully breathe new life into it, creating a spiritual connection with the crowd.

"It served not only as a fitting tribute to the godfather of soul and the house that put soul on the map, but also as a testament to the utter brilliance of the Baddest Band in the Land and their reigning queen, Miss Sharon Jones."
