Soul Jazz Records' 200% Dynamite! set the benchmark for reggae meets funk compilations that has never been bettered. Out of print for over 15 years this new 2023 edition with new tracks and is being released in a one-off limited-edition heavyweight special-edition coloured vinyl pressing + download code exclusively for Record Store Day 2023.
Jam-packed with reggae tunes that crossed over to become dancefloor hits, such as Tenor SawÕs sound boy anthem ÔRing the Alarm,Õ K.C. WhiteÕs classic cut of the seminal "No, No, No", and Augustus Pablo's ÔRockers RockÕ, 200% Dynamite explores the links between reggae, jazz, funk, and soul.
Carrying on perfectly from 100% Dynamite, this second compilation continues to trace the history of Jamaican reggae and the influence of American styles such as funk and jazz had on this music.
Featured here are serious funk and rocksteady tunes from the likes of The Skatalites and Johnny Osbourne through to Jamaican jazz from masters such as Tommy McCook and Byron Lee, as well as some serious dub from the likes of Augustus Pablo, King Tubby and Jackie Mittoo.
New bonus tracks on this new 2023 edition include seminal dancehall party cuts Sister NancyÕs ÔOne TwoÕ and Chaka Demus and PliersÕ ÔMurder She WroteÕ, alongside classic soul to reggae covers including cuts of Marlena ShawÕs ÔWomen of the GhettoÕ and OdysseyÕs ÔDonÕt Tell Me Tell HerÕ."
