I LEARNED The Hard Way is a blast from the past.
Following the success of 100 Days, 100 Nights, Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings don't rock the boat for this follow-up - they continue to funk and soul it.
The '70s-sounding funk band backing are the perfect vehicle for the Motown-esque pipes of Jones, who is a joy on grooves like Better Things To Do and Without A Heart.
So if you're not yet educated in the ways of these revivalists, let this be a lesson to you.
