Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings - "Got To Be The Way It Is Pt. 1 & 2"
"Got to Be the Way It Is." That's what Ms. Jones will say if you ask why she and the Dap-Kings won't let up with these hit records. It just got to be the way it is! Sharon Jones got to be the baddest! And man, is she BAD! This, her third single on Daptone Records is without a doubt the strongest to date. With horns, bass, drums, guitar, organ, and conga drums all locked into an exciting new rhythmic pattern, the Dap-Kings lay down a solid foundation for the legendary Sharon Jones to do her thing. I mean she comes on Strong and Funky! Try this record out to start your next dance party. I guarantee you it will be a smash! If that's not enough then flip it over for Part Two and check out how the Dap-Kings really cut loose! The Queen Mother of Funk has come with a message: No matter what comes her way, this Soul Sister is gonna work it out! That's just the way it's got to be!
