Last week an exciting package arrived at my place from Daptone Records, Brooklyn, N.Y.C. courtesy companero Jon at The Vinyl District and one of his splendid vinyl giveaways.
It contained six Daptone 7" singles, a poster and a signed ("Love ya!") copy of the brand new Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings LP.
I was thrilled skinny with all this, and thought I'd share a tune from one of the singles with you here.
It's a reissue of an old Stax track from Darrell Banks (who's best known for the out-and-out solid gold Northern Soul classic 'Open The Doors To Your Heart'); a mid-tempo heartbreaker that's just right for midweek, baby.
Thanks again Jon and the groovy people at Daptone.
