This is the new digitally remastered 2015 expanded edition of Soul Jazz Records' biggest ever selling release, 100% Dynamite!Ska, Soul, Rocksteady and Funk in Jamaica.
Since the album's original release nearly twenty years ago, 100% Dynamite has become a cornerstone of reggae: eighteen killer tracks that show the influence that American Jazz, Funk and Soul music had on Jamaican Reggae.
The proximity of the West Indies to the USA meant that many Jamaican musicians were influenced by American styles of music whilst at the same time defining new styles of their own such as Ska, Rocksteady and Dub.
100% Dynamite features some serious Jamaican funk by Jackie Mittoo,
The Upsetters and Toots & The Maytals, the cream of Jamaica's jazz
musicians such as Tommy McCook, Cedric Brooks and Lennie Hibbert. Also
included here are heavyweight Reggae versions to Soul classics by
Marlena Shaw's 'Woman of the Ghetto', Aretha Franklin's 'Rocksteady',
Syl Johnson's 'Is It Because I'm Black', William DeVaughan's seminal 'Be
Thankful' and more. 2 x LP.
