SOME STUFFS: Daptone prepares second digital-only 7" compilation

As a vinyl junkie, it scares me a bit to think that Daptone Records are in support of digital-only releases, but if it means more people exposed to the Daptone way of life, it's a good thing.

Daptone is at it again with a 2nd volume that will be available for download on June 3rd. All of these songs were primarily exclusive on 45's, and aren't available anywhere else. Here is the confirmed track listing for Daptone 7 Inch Singles Collection, Vol. 2:

1. The Matador - The Mighty Imperials
2. Now That I'm Gone - Charles Bradley & The Bullets
3. Can't Stop Thinking About You - Charles Bradley

6. How Long Do I Have To Wait For You (Instr.)
