"Carrying on perfectly from 100% Dynamite,this new compilation simply features more funk -- soul -- rocksteady -- jazz -- dub and ska tracks tracing the history of Jamaican Reggae and the influence American styles such as Funk and Jazz had on this music. 200 % Dynamite features some serious Funk and Rocksteady from the likes of The Upsetters and Toots and The Maytals through to long out-of-print cult club classics such as Tenor Saw's mighty 'Ring The Alarm' and the Skatalites much in demand funk classic'Candlelight', 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 and Jackie Mittoo. Whereas 100% Dynamite took tracks mainly from Studio One, 200% Dynamite delves further into Jamaica"s classic labels such as Treasure Isle, Techniques and the Upsetter label. Taking music primarily from the Sixties and Seventies, 200% Dynamite takes you further into the Jamaica"s music such as Ska, Rocksteady, Dub etc showing at the same time how the proximity to the USA meant that Jamaican musicians were still being influenced by US styles such as Funk,Jazz and Soul."
