Description
Rhythm and blues is anything but a museum piece, as the well-deserved popularity of Sharon Jones and her 11-piece band of grooving gents proves. These 10 tracks of hook-laden, soulful funk include "Making Up and Breaking Up," "Get Up and Get Out," "Slow Down Love," "Long Time, Wrong Time," and "You'll Be Lonely."

"The singer dismisses old lovers ('Retreat!'), fake friends ('Now I See') and the idle rich ('People Don't Get What They Deserve') with stubborn assertiveness. Set, as always, against the Dap-Kings' characteristically springy horns, Jones growls and struts through 10 timeless songs … throughout an album that deftly and efficiently carries out the mission suggested by its title."—First Listen, NPR

"Her band's hard-pumping horns, flickering funk guitars, and 'River Deep—Mountain High' echo dives into retro-soul with unwavering zeal…. Song after song on 'Give the People What They Want' performs its title's function for anyone enthralled by the Stax, Philips, Motown and Okeh Records of old. The grand timpani has the melodrama of a Phil Spector teen-dream, while the brass mimics the brashness of a prime Muscle Shoals session. The backup singers echo classic 1960s roof-shakers like the Sweet Inspirations (who supported Aretha)."—New York Daily News
