Stumbled across this by complete accident over the weekend. Im familiar with Micahel Buble but must admit i’m not really a fan, however as soon as I saw that Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings were involved I thought it must be worth a listen.

Michael Buble feat. Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – Baby (You’ve Got What It Takes)

I’m very familiar with the Dinah Washington/Brook Benton original, and I also love Deborah Cox’s cover on her Destination Moon album, however this dosn’t really add anything to the mix. Unsurprisingly Sharon Jones sounds great, as do The Dap Kings, however I find Michael’s voice a bit bland and middle of the road. This could have been great …. if Sharon had teamed up with someone else.

    Michael Buble is the it man back home in Canada, but I have never been fully sold on him. As you stated, he does come across rather bland at times. And this song needs to ‘souls’, to make it soulful. 🙂

    Agreed. This could have been so much more had it been Sharon Jones and another ‘soul’ singer … although as i write this i’m struggling to think of someone who would suit this.
