Soul and r&b that'll have you on your knees shouting please please please...
Label: Daptone Records / The Orchard

For years, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have been experts at recreating the sound and feel of vintage soul and funk — so much so that when producer Mark Ronson wanted something in that vein for Amy Winehouse's Back to Black, he went to the Dap-Kings. But if Dap-Kings bassist and main songwriter Gabriel Roth has a command of older styles, it's as much due to the material he writes as knowing which equipment sounds… read more »

I could hear her 1000 days, 1000 nights!

Mexi-Vic

This album although not her best was still vocally good. She reminds me of the good old days of when soul was soul and it came from the heart! If you ever have a chance to se her live PLEASE DO SO!

Why? Why Not?

kathymiller

Why download? Who's keeping the old school soul, funk & R&B alive for today's generation? Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings. The title song stands up proud alongside Etta, Aretha, sisters Irma & Caroline too. Mavis would agree.

Lovely...but why?

KPP

On its merits, this is a great record. Nice songs, good vocals, superbly recorded. But you're left thinking, "Why?" The previous records are better, certainly, but so are James Carr "You've Got My Mind Messed Up" and Mavis Staples "Only the Lonely" (both on emusic). Download those, then this.

Good but could have done better

podunk.holler

This album is good but it does not match their previous one (Naturally) for overall quality. The opening song is great but after that the album is not as strong, whereas Naturally has great tracks throughout. If you're looking to find out what SJ & the DKs are about then start with Naturally.

Pretty good

Blueberries

I wanted to like this. I really did. And there are certainly things I enjoy about it (such as the opening track.) The recording quality alone has to be appreciated....they took the absolute best elements of 60's recordings and updated them with the latest improvements. Job well done. All the elements are there for some slam-bang 60's soul songs to drive it home. Sadly, these never emerge. The songwriting sound like B-sides from older soul singers, nowhere near as good as what you can find in old record bins. However, I commend Sharon & her Dap Kings for making this record. A Job well done.

Totally retro, but totally fun

TheScar

Mark Ronson's secret weapon is revealed. So skip him and go straight to the source: a great, great fun album. Can't wait to see her live.

The Real Thing!!!

R&B has found its true champion. No drum machines or artificial additives just pure butter!!!

Sharon Jones is Gonna Be Just Fine

By Amanda Petrusich, Contributor

Sharon Jones paws through her handbag and emerges with a pocket-sized, navy-blue vaporizer that vaguely resembles an up-market ballpoint pen — the kind a mid-level executive might get as a retirement gift. "Amanda, look, no smell," she says, taking a tiny puff. I mumble that I'm vaguely familiar with the technology. What I fail to tell her is that I do not possess the balls to smoke weed in the middle of a half-empty pub… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Sharon Jones, the big-voiced lead singer of the Dap-Kings — a band that recently began making its name known outside those enthusiasts of the Daptone label and the reaches of the soul community thanks to appearances with Amy Winehouse and work for Mark Ronson, including a version of Dylan’s “Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine)” — is no music-world neophyte. 100 Days, 100 Nights is just her third full-length with the Dap-Kings, but Jones has been singing on and off since the 1970s, without much of a break until she began working with her current label. Meaning, she’s certainly paid her dues, and she has enough life experience behind her voice to make the words she sings sound that much truer. Because soul music — and this isn’t neo-soul, or contemporary R&B, but straight-up Stax and Motown brassy soul — is so much more than the actual lyrics themselves; it’s about the inflection and emotion that the vocalist is able to exude, and Jones proves herself to be master of that, moving from coy to romantic to defiant easily and believably. The album is much smoother, even gentler, than her previous releases, and though the Dap-Kings still power their way through the ten songs with bright horn licks, inspired drumming, and staccato guitar lines, there’s a deeper, bluesier edge to the record, heard in “Let Them Knock” or the slower “Humble Me.” “Don’t let me forget who I am,” Jones croons in the latter, her voice rising to a sweet falsetto at the end of the phrase. It’s a very clean record, not over-produced but well produced, with a lot of great pop moments tucked in between the brassier, funkier bits. The title track relies on a sultry organ and a minor vamp to make its point, while “Something’s Changed” uses strings and punctuated sax and bass as the singer drops a bit of her lungs out, bringing a kind of immediacy to her words, as if the actuality of the situation around her hasn’t quite set in enough for her to wail about it, as if she’s just realizing it and listeners are right there to hear about it. But that’s the magic and power of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings: their ability to convey passion and pain, regret and celebration, found in the arrangements and the tail ends of notes, in the rhythms and phrasing, and it is exactly that which makes 100 Days, 100 Nights such an excellent release. – Marisa Brown
