Daptone Records Mark 10 Years w/Special Releases & NYC Shows


Daptone Records has been delivering the New Sound of Old Soul since the turn of this century and has established itself as a place where quality, heart and feeling are the staple of every on of their releases. The label is celebrating 10 Years of Daptone with a series of intimate shows in New York and Brooklyn -- four sold out Sharon Jones & The Dap-kings shows in Brooklyn and New York with labelmates Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens and The Sugarman 3 alternating the opening slots. As well as a December 3 Charles Bradley headline show at The Bowery Ballroom and a New Year's Eve blowout with The Budos Band at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

A series of special releases will also accompany the label's 10th anniversary celebrations, including SOUL TIME!, a compilation of singles, B-sides and live tracks from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings out on November 25 as a Record Store Day Black Friday exclusive.

Reissues of Charles Bradley's debut album No Time For Dreaming featuring two additional tracks—covers of Neil Young's "Heart of Gold" and Nirvana's "Stay Away"-and El Rego featuring 12 of the African soul legend's greatest recordings from the late ’60s and early ’70s are out now.

Also available now is the digital release The World of Daptone sampler featuring one song from every Daptone LP. Limited quantities of the CD version of the album will be distributed for free at select independent record stores on Black Friday.
