“100 Days, 100 Nights”
On this title song to her third album, Sharon Jones is steadfastly a twenty-first-century woman: To not act the fool, she croons, a woman must know that she can know a man before he knows himself. Referring to herself and her band, retro-soul connoisseurs the Dap-Kings, Jones told Rolling Stone, "We sell all our vinyl before we sell all our CDs." After the Dap-Kings were hired to back Amy Winehouse on her wildly successful Back to Black album and tour, Jones was initially perturbed with people mistakenly thinking she got her sound — and her band — from the British neo-soul diva. "First, I feel kind of angry about it," she said. "Well, if it took Amy to get the Dap-Kings heard, then it's a good thing."
