100 Days, 100 Nights

100 Days, 100 Nights is the third full-length studio album by American funk band Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. Recorded in 2006, it was released on Daptone Records October 2, 2007. Daptone Records, a Brooklyn based record company, is an indie label owned and run by its contributing artists. The band,The Dap Kings, is the house band for Daptone Records. With influences from sixties era funk and afrobeats, 100 Days, 100 Nights was recorded by Bosco Mann at the in house studios of Daptone Records, using a completely analogue system as well as releasing 45's on vinyl - with the intent of creating an old school sound reminiscent of the original funk of the 1960s. The first track, also titled "100 Days, 100 Nights" is written about love, making reference to this being the number of days needed for a man's heart to unfold.- Singles tracks are available on 7 inch vinyl.

The music video for "100 Days,100 Nights" was shot exclusively using authentic vintage cameras from the 1950s, and in a simple style likened to a performance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

On the vinyl pressing of the album, Side One has the message "This is a hit!" written in the matrix, or the run-off groove. This is a reference to James Brown and what he had said during the recording sessions for "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" (as heard on the Star Time box set). Side Two of the album honors Brown with the message "For the Godfather".

The CD pressing of the album includes a promotional bonus disc of selected material from the Daptone Records catalog, presented as a radio program called "Binky Griptite's Ghettofunkpowerhour". This bonus disc runs an additional fifty eight minutes and introduces the fictitious WDAP radio station, featuring an additional 27 tracks of music and dialogue. This promotional disc was never released for individual sale, but was later available as a free download for MP3.

The song Nobody's Baby was used in the pilot episode (titled Lori Gilbert) of the Canadian TV police drama series King.
