True soul singers are tough to come by. So when we finally heard about Sharon Jones and her Dap-Kings, we were a bit skeptical. “Yeah,” we thought, “but can she really sing the part?” Thankfully, she can. Sophomore album “I Learned the Hard Way” is coursing through with soul, body, too, and is the kind of album we were dreaming of since Motown had its day. It’s tough to pick only a few highlight tracks, considering the whole album truly is fantastic, but try on “Mama Don’t Like My Man” and the title track. If you’re still not convinced after listening to those tracks, then maybe you should have your ears checked. Seriously. Great, authentic soul music that’ll always have a home in your collection.
