On November 24th Daptone Records will release Daptone Gold, a collection of some of the label's rarest and most favorite singles and deep cuts on CD and a lovingly packaged double LP, which includes a poster, a sticker and some amount of gold foil. The recession is over! YAYYYY!! The always fiery Lee Fields appears three times: once on a duet with Sharon Jones, again on his own "Could Have Been" (Daptone founder Gabe Roth's all-time fave), and on "Stand Up," previously only available as a 45 RPM single. But since Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away and today is off-year election day in many cities around America, Daptone gave us the latter mpfree to get you in the proper state of mind for both voting and purchasing. Keep your eye on the Daptone store for pre-orders or wait until the 24th to buy in a dusty old vinyl shop.
