This Friday, October 1st, Daptone will be releasing a much-anticipated live compilation, The Daptone Super Soul Revue Live at the Apollo, a 20th-anniversary celebration of the record label. The album features performances by Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Charles Bradley, Saun & Starr, Antibalas, The Budos Band, Menahan Street Band, and the Como Mamas at New York’s Apollo Theater.
The performances were originally recorded in a three-night stint at the historic venue, and while the recordings showcase the enormous talent that helped establish Daptone’s reputation, it also acts as a fitting tribute to those who are no longer with us, like Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, and Naomi Shelton & Cliff Driver.
The physical live album includes a 3xLP gatefold with 48-page booklet featuring both on-stage and backstage photos by Isaac Sterling and Jacob Blickenstaff.
