Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are an American funk and soul band signed to Daptone Records. They are part of a revivalist movement recreating mid-1960s to mid-1970s style funk and soul music.[1] In December 2014, the band was nominated for a Grammy, in the category Best R&B Album of the Year for Give the People What They Want.[2] The band has continued to perform together after the death of lead singer Sharon Jones in 2016.[3]

Sharon Lafaye Jones (May 4, 1956 November 18, 2016) was an American soul and funk singer. She was the lead singer of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, a soul and funk band based in Brooklyn, New York.[1] Jones experienced breakthrough success relatively late in life,[2] releasing her first record when she was 40 years old.[3] In 2014, Jones was nominated for her first Grammy, in the category Best R&B Album, for Give the People What They Want.[4][5]

...Snip...

During the screening of her documentary at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival,[34] Jones revealed that her cancer had returned,[35] and that she would be undergoing chemotherapy again.[36] She suffered a stroke while watching the 2016 United States presidential election results and another the following day.[37] Jones remained alert and lucid during the initial period of her hospital stay, jokingly claiming that the news of Donald Trump's victory was responsible for her stroke.[38][39]

2. Sharon Jones was a great talent.

I love her music. May she rest in peace.

There is a live version of This Land is Your Land at the Cafe Corsari on Youtube.

Sorry, I don't know how to get it posted but you can see it there. She sings it in a gold sparkly dress with matching shoes. Epic.

6. Thank you for the kind words, sprinkleeninow.

But you didn't have to delete on my account. I remember this song from the hootenanny days of the sixties. It is so nice to be able to remember a time when neighborhoods had gatherings to sing songs of patriotic peace and revolution. I miss those days.

9. 'Twas the exact same rendition. Showing the album cover.

Your selection is more better with all the pertinent pictorial.

Hootenanny. Ah, yes. Now everbody knows my 'circa' age. 😄

7. I love this woman - my brother and I took a flier one weekend and went to see her cold

Neither of us had heard of her back then ('06)

We both became lifelong fans by the end of the 1st set.

This is my favorite version - from a French TV appearance in April 2010
