100% reggae radness! The compilation that started it all, one of Soul Jazz Records biggest selling releases of all time, and all around badass listening. 100% Dynamite compiles Reggae, JA Soul / Funk, and Ska rarities from some of the greats and some of the lesser known but well respected. The compilation showcases the inspiration taken from the American side of music and how it effected those on the island. There are covers like 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 as well as OG revoltionary tunes. This is flava central, hands down one of the best comps to own for any music head that has a soul.
