In the new millennium, soul has become big business again. But despite succulent re-issues from labels like Astralwerks and Light in the Attic, the resurgence of seasoned soul sisters like Bettye LaVette, and the volcanic popularity of new-soul crooners like Amy Winehouse, the champions of the new generation's purist strain are Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. After the often upbeat, always exciting sounds of 2005's Naturally, the band's next outing comes off as a slightly more tempered affair. The title track opens with an indefatigable statement of purpose, dropping into a late-stage, sub-halftime groove so Jones can fully "take [her] time" lamenting her missing man. Elsewhere, her voice effortless treads the heights and depths of its range with timeless aplomb ("Be Easy," "When the Other Foot Drops, Uncle," "Answer Me"). The Dap Kings themselves have reached a pocket-digging near-perfection, recent collaborations with Kanye West, Lily Allen, and the aforementioned Winehouse, yielding the sounds of a band at the top of its game. At times, these tracks court the uninspired flavor of the wholly derivative, but in all, 100 Days, 100 Nights makes for a very welcome addition to any avid listener's contemporary soul music library. --Jason Kirk

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have put together an amazing record. You may know the Dap-Kings for their work with Marc Ronson on his recent "Version" album or as the backing band for Amy Winehouse - both on the recording and on tour. Their influence is so great on Ms. Winehouse's record, that should have been billed as Amy Winehouse and the Dap-Kings.

"100 Days, 100 Nights" is a complete throwback to late 60s and early 70s R&B with no reservations. When I first heard this, I thought it came from that era until my friend said, "No! This comes out next week!" You can definitely hear the Winehouse/Ronson connection (Ronson produced Amy's "Back to Black"). The baritone sax is the signature instrument here and I love it. Sharon Jones sings with such conviction, which luckily is not lost through overproduction like some other recent throwback soul recordings. This is obviously due to the band's insistence of recording on vintage, analog equipment.

This is Sharon and the Kings' 3rd album, so you can grab this one and then pick up their previous 2 efforts. Which you should. Really.

Some years ago Memphis opened shop in Brooklyn NY as Daptone records. The label grew out of the Desco label, a short lived collaboration between Philip Lehman and Gabriel Roth. When they fell out Roth continued the work Desco started at Daptone. Desco (and later Daptone) was dedicated to bringing you that authentic Funk & Soul sound from the sixties. Their first releases came so close to that sound that collectors were tricked into believing that "The Revenge Of Mr Mopoji" was actually a long lost Blaxploitation gem from the seventies. The confusion was fueled by the omission of recording dates and studio information on the records when they were originally released. This was done deliberately as Desco successfully tried to get the collectors interested for the label. Ironically with Desco's demise those first records would eventually become just as collectible a the genuine product from that era.

Daptone went on to operate as a genuine Soul studio complete with a house band, the Dap-Kings. As a band they were so successful in recreating the sounds of the late sixties and early seventies that I even hesitate to call them a retro act. The Dap-Kings weren't inspired by music from that era, they were an exact carbon copy. Some of the hooks on the records Daptone issued came awful close to familiar grooves from the JB's or Booker T & the MGs. With that authentic Soul sound Daptone placed itself so far from the mainstream market that it hardly got any sales in their first few years. The artists on the roster, most notably Daptone flagship Sharon Jones, survived by the live reputation they soon gained as a live act. Because of the Punk sensibility Daptone had in their way of doing business, the label gained a strong following in the Punk and Garage scenes.

I absolutely love how authentic this album is. Everything is kept organic and real. The style of the art direction (the fonts, photography) will have you thinking you've picked up something that was released circa 1963 - what a GREAT touch! The latest music video for the title track takes it there even further (go check it out on YouTube and see what I mean). As terrific as the album is, the real stunner for me is the bonus disc that is included. The "WDAP Binky Griptite [what a name!] GhettoFunkPowerHour" sampler is mind blowing in it's power to evoke that time long ago. Everything about it, from the vocal effects of the "host", to the all the various songs (which are incredible) sampled from the Daptone Records catalog will amaze you. It is truly like stepping back in time. Amazing! One of the year's best - no question.

And Sharon Jones is no retread, either. Okay, she sounds a lot like the Old School I grew up with, but she's got an edge and power of her own.

"100 Days, 100 Nights" is a great opening anthem about how long it takes to learn a man's heart with a POW ending that'll leave your jaw dropped.

"When the Other Foot Drops" is about payback time when that person who's been taking advantage of others has to pay up--and do they ever! "You better pack up and run" is Sharon's advice and considering what the person's got to run from, that's not such a bad idea.

"Answer me" is a gorgeous gospel song about hard times with strong horns backing.

There's really not a bad song on this CD. It's solid, soulful, and well worth the money if you love R&B of any school.

It's real sad that it took an overrated faker like Amy Winehouse to use Sharon Jones' backing band in order to make people recognize her, but still it's great that she's finally getting the attention she deserves. At 50 years of age, Sharon Jones is the sound of classic soul and funk. She's not trying to churn out some throwback junk. This is the real thing. And the same goes for her band, The Dapkings and pretty much anything on Daptone Records is good. I personally would have liked this album to be a bit funkier, but overall, there are no skips so you really can't complain. Buy this album, then check her out live to be really blown away.
