Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings - "Genuine Pt. 1 & 2"
What's the best damned thing you can think of? Forget that. This is the best damned thing you can think of: BAM! Genuine. Some records make you laugh. Some, they make you cry. But before you drop the needle on "Genuine," you better strap on a diaper because this record will make you shit your pants! It's an out-of-sight popcorn syncopation that will have you gasping for air. The renowned Queen of Funk lays it down while the incomparable Dap Kings locks down on a strange jagged groove punctuated with surgical precision by the bap-bap-bap-BAP of the horns. This 45 should be tossed mercifully to any funk DJ floundering over a lethargic dance floor, because it's uptight, funky, and shaped just like a life saver.
