Miss Sharon Jones! [OST] CD)

You could look at the soundtrack to the new documentary about soul front-woman Sharon Jones the same way you could look at "I'm Still Here," the exclusive single to the compilation: a chilling reminder of the incredible singer's recent fight with cancer, as well as the long and arduous road to her success. With a backing track reminiscent of Superfly-era Curtis Mayfield, Jones recounts that journey with piercing, chill-inducing directness that certifies her place with the all-time greats of R&B/soul (as if it were even a question). But ultimately, this track, along with the rest of the album, is a celebration of Jones' talent, perseverance, and the power of the soulful expression of oneself. Collected here are some of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings' hottest singles, and best loved tracks from the band's full-length albums.
