Daptone hits 20 years and releases massive 3LP live album

Recorded in 2014 at New Yorks Apollo

In honor of the label’s 20th anniversary, Daptone proudly announces The Daptone Super Soul Revue Live at the Apollo, a 3LP set of performances at the famed New York theater. The live album arrives this fall on October 1st and features performances by  Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Naomi Shelton, Antibalas, The Budos Band, Menahan Street Band, Sugarman 3, Saun & Starr and the Como Mamas.

Singles "Introduction by Binky Griptite - The Dap-Kings,” "Let Love Stand a Chance" by Charles Bradley, and "Get Up and Get Out" by Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings offer an early taste of The Super Soul Revue. 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.

Now celebrating 20 years as the #1 source for today’s soul music, Daptone will showcase the very best performances from three sold out nights at the legendary theater. On the surface the album is a clear demonstration of the sheer talent that helped put Daptone on the map, but with the passing of their beloved brothers and sisters, Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Naomi Shelton & Cliff Driver, a bittersweet duality befalls the release in that it must not only serves as a commemorative keepsake of the joyous affair but also as a fitting tribute to the legacies of their most cherished artists.
