100% Dynamite explores the links between Reggae, Jazz, Funk and Soul.

The album is jam-packed with Reggae tunes that have crossed-over and become cult dancefloor hits in clubland such as "Greedy G", "Rocksteady" and "Granny Scratch Scratch". Fourteen tracks of music that show the influence that American Jazz, Funk and Soul music has had on Jamaican Reggae. The proximity of the West Indies to the USA meant that many Jamaican musicians would continue to be influenced by American styles of music whilst at the same time continuing to define new styles of their own such as Ska, Rocksteady and Dub.

100% Dynamite features come serious Jamaican funk by Jackie Mittoo, The Brentford All-Stars, The Upsetters and Toots & The Maytals, the cream of Jamaica's jazz musicians such as Tommy McCook, Cedric Brooks and Lennie Hibbert and also features revolutionary tunes such as "Armageddon Time", "Drum Song" and "Cuss Cuss", songs which helped define a unique sound for Jamaican music in the sixties and seventies. 100% Dynamite is also the name of a club Soul Jazz Records ran for 15 years!

Collected here are fourteen killer tracks that have rocked the crowd!
