Last Sunday at Steady Sounds, a locally owned record store, located at 322 W. Broad Street, had an exclusive release of the new Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings record, Give the People What They Want. The new record, which is scheduled for release on January 14 is highly anticipated from fans of the amazing soul singer since it’s been put on hold for nearly a year while Sharon had courageously fought cancer. She has gone through a series of treatments and now is hopefully headed to a wonderful and steady recovery.

I stopped by Steady Sounds to photograph some of the scene. I chatted briefly with Steady Sounds co-owner Marty. He said, Steady Sounds was honored to have the opportunity to get the new record early. It came to the store through Dap-Tone Records, Sharon’s label. I have to think to myself that a solid brunch and playing of the new record is so my better than a failed renegade projection on the side of the wall (Kanye) but maybe I’m just getting old. WE LOVE SHARON – WE SEE IT!
