Jamiroquai - The Funkin Site

Dynamite

Dynamite is the sixth studio album by Jamiroquai, and was produced by Mike Spencer. The packaging for the album is I believe the first Jamiroquai release with www.jamiroquai.com used as the website URL (Feels Just Like It Should printed the .co.uk address).

UK release

UK release

In addition to the "regular" 11 tracks, the UK release of Dynamite includes Time Won't Wait as track 12.

In the sleeve notes for the album Jay writes the following (oh, in addition to thanking me ;)

"I'd like to thank Jamiroquai fans worldwide for their seemingly never ending suport of this. I promise you, it's still genuinely humbling. Thank you so much! I'd like to thank all the people who hail me out and say hello. It's very cool and I wish them every success in whatever they do in life."

After 14 weeks the album dropped out of the top 80 album chart.

In the official UK "Top 10 R&B Albums" chart, the album had the following weekly chart run: 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 7, 5, 4, 1, 2, 3, 8, 10.
