Thanks for pointing to this. It’s a great tape, and all the better for going back to the originals. I’ve been wondering, though, about recent attempts to recreate the sound of 60s/70s soul. Sharon Jones just passed through my town and I have to say, it was a great show. But it left me wondering, is this just nostalgia or is this about reconnecting with the spirit of those years? Maybe you have something to say about Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.

I don’t want to put any non-positive energy out there, but J.Period I give props to. The REMAKES…I don’t. Give me Marvin, Teddy P’s, Ray Charles/Beatles, etc. versions on a scratched 45′ any day over the “new” interpretations.
