I heard Ms Jones first on the Funk show on BBC6 music. I made a mental note that I should get something by her. I was shocked to find out this is contemporary take on the classic soul of the mid to late 60's. I thought she was some "lost artist". Sounds like something from King records or stax. I dont think i could give it a better compliment than that. It sounds very authentic and the musicians are top notch, particulary the rhythm section. Given their association with Amy Winewhouse and Mark Ronson, I see good things ahead for this great bunch of musicians.

Classic Soul at its best, sounding as it should but doing it naturally, this is not a product designed to sound retro, this is the real stuff. These people at Daptone records really knows how to make a record.
Sharon Jones sings better everyday, the production of Bosco Mann is superb and the songs are all originals and great compositions too.
From the great song that gives name to the album through the Funky R&B of "Nobody's Baby" to the Northern Soul Flavored sounds of "Tell me" and "Keep on looking", the Stax influenced southern ballad "Humble me" or the delicious melody and horns of "Something's Changed" this is a truly GREAT record.

We love it! We hope that this excellent CD brings more of their authentic take on soul to popular attention. Some of the tracks are reminiscent of vintage soul classics at their best. With the CD comes a bonus sampler of tracks from the same Daptone label; a happy unexpected extra! If you haven't listened to 'Naturally',the previous album, then it's well worth catching too. We saw Miss Jones and the Dap Kings at Womad and have been firm fans ever since.

I first heard about Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings on NPR and CNN. I was surprised to hear that they were Amy Winehouse's touring band; in retrospect, I should have ditched the Winehouse CD and bought 100 Days, 100 Nights since Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings are the enduring soul stars on the scene. Sharon's story is a rags-to-riches tale of a former corrections officer who gave up her goal of a solo career because she was told she was "too black" or "too fat" to succeed.

This is soul the way it used to sound: gutteral, saucy, and sassy, at times a hair's breadth away from gospel, spiced with Muscle Shoals-style horns and tambourine beats that bring to mind the Funk Brothers. This sounds like it could be right out of the '70s heyday, and the band uses analog recording equipment for a more authentic sound.

The ten songs start out with a bang on 100 Days 100 Nights, starting with Sharon musing on love with a hoarse, urgent delivery that slows down to a slow burn as a Hammond organ underscores the drama and a gospelish choir sings the title lyrics behind Sharon. Nobody's Baby is a self-empowerment ode to women that flirts with funk and brims with "don't mess with me" attitude. Tell Me sounds straight out of the Funk Brothers catalog, with staccato tamborine, bongos, and crisp snare smoothed with vibe, and Sharon's sassy search for love. When the Other Foot Drops, Uncle is a soundalike for a long-lost Al Green gem. The rest of the tracks are each distinct and at once familiarly comforting, closing with the gospel blockbuster Answer Me.

Run, don't walk, to buy this if you're a fan of '70s soul. Amazing performances and authentically retro sound make this a must-have.

This is truly a stunning piece of retro art.

The music is almost perfect, played by almost perfect musicians and sung by an almost perfect voice. There are distinct strains of Gloria Gaynor recorded in a manner that pays tribute to that great time in music. This could be the most perfect tribute album but, in it's own right, it is a fabulous piece of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. I'm so pleased I bought this.

Simply a great record, beautiful soulful voice, great band. Putting the soul back into music. You can tell they simply do what they do because they love it. Going to buy the earlier albums.

Great musicianship, great voice, very authentic.
Even the cd sleeve is made to look like a 60's record.

I saw her on tour before buying this and the show was mind-blowing.
Get at least one of this band's albums and BUY A TOUR TICKET !!

You won't be disappointed.
