Daptone selects soul gems from Helsinki's Timmion label on Bad Education

Bad Education Vol. 1 includes tracks by Nicole Willis, Willie West, Ernie Hawks, Pratt & Moody, Bobby Oroza and others. 

For the better part of 15 years, Helsinki's own Timmion Records has released some of the most exciting soul sides happening today. To help spread the Timmion love, Daptone staffers and brass made a list of their favorite Timmion tracks from the past couple years. Presented here is Bad Education, Vol. I, the culmination of weeks of deliberation and infighting – 10 tracks that best represent the eclectic wealth of soulful riches Timmion Records has to offer. We can only hope that Bad Education Vol 2 will focus on the label's fantastic instrumental backing tracks from the Soul Investigators and Cold Diamond & Mink.
Check the complete tracklisting following a few song clips below and pre-order a copy right here.
