James Brown At The Garden

LP (Item 30084) King, 1967 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Not as well-known as James Brown's live albums from the Apollo, but a really cooking set from the 60s that keeps up a plenty hard groove all the way through! As with most of James' live dates, the tracks here move at a clip that's often even faster than the studio work – played to perfection by the group with razor-sharp tightness that's simply breathtaking – possibly even more so in this environment. And although the crowd noise swells up at time, there's definitely less of the "fake" live sound of other JB albums of this nature – just a gritty little live party that blows the speakers out from all the action at the low end! Titles include versions of "Ain't That A Groove", "I Got You", "Bring It Up", and "Out Of Sight" – plus the groovy "Hip Bag '67" and "Let Yourself Go". Nice cover, too – with a back photo that has a picture of James and Hubert Humphrey, and a front cover that's a cool cartoony image of New York near the Garden!
