Soul Time collects a few of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ many non-album tracks. Two of them are among the group’s best: “What If We All Stopped Stop Paying Taxes” is a convincing argument for civil disobedience in the tradition of Fred Wesley’s “You Can Have Watergate,” and “Ain’t No Chimneys in the Projects” includes a string section alongside Jones’ tale of Christmastime in the ghetto. Also worth a listen is a faithful rendition of Shuggie Otis’ “Inspiration Information” and the 2006 track “Longer and Stronger,” on which Miss Jones celebrated her 50th birthday.
