Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens – “You Got to Move” (audio)

Daptone Records usually delivers the goods, and this is no exception.

Chris Gerard: This fantastic cover of the gospel/blues standard by Fred McDowell first appeared in 2011 on the Mojo Magazine curated Sticky Soul Fingers, an R&B tribute to the Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers album. The recording is getting another lease on life as part of the upcoming Daptone Gold II compilation, and it’s great that more people will have the opportunity to hear it. Naomi Shelton is a national treasure that too few people know about. Her deeply soulful voice captures the essence of the song, and the funky retro accompaniment is tight and groovin’. Daptone Records usually delivers the goods, and this is no exception. [9/10]
