Slaughter's Big Rip-Off

LP (Item 4226) Polydor, 1973 — Condition: Used
Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 11

Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s! James really outdid himself for this one – working at a hard burning pace that had the JBs cooking up some killer funk for just about every number in the set – and which also has James himself stepping out vocally for a few key tracks. The album features the massive groover "People Get Up and Drive Your Funky Soul" – a slamming track that beats nearly every number in the JB 70s catalog – plus other cuts that include "To My Brother", "Brother Rapp", "Sexy Sexy Sexy", "Slaughter Theme", "Transmogrification", "King Slaughter", and "How Long Can I Keep It Up". (Original pressing. Cover has seam splitting, some wear, and two small torn-off corners.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Phoenix10, 1982. Very Good
A lot less disco than you'd guess from the setting – still very much in that fast-funk mode that James was using at the end of the 70s – a style that was his answer to club music, but which was still largely forged out of a soulful funk-based groove! Titles include "Sex ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mighty Instrumentals
King, 1966. Very Good
Mighty is right! This tasty batch of non-vocal tracks is darn hard to find, and it shows the pre-JBs James Brown group playing with a raw raw raw soul groove that show how nicely James folded his R&B roots into a 60s soul tradition. Includes lots of obscure ones – like "The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Federal Years Part 1
Solid Smoke, Late 50s. Very Good+
An excellent compilation that brings together some of James Brown's earliest work – his late 50s R&B sides for the Federal subsidiary of King, ruffer tuffer sides than most of his 60s recordings. Most of the tracks on here have backing vocals by The Flames – and the set is a really ... LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1966. Good+
Quite possibly THE James Brown album of the mid 60s – a solid set of hard-grooving tracks, based around the monster title hit "I Got You (I Feel Good)"! The tune's one of those numbers that has been used a gajillion times over the years in commercials and promos – but which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gettin' Down To It
King, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold
A great little album by James Brown – and very different than his other work! He cut this one with the groovy Dee Felice Trio – a jazz-based combo that he recorded on their own for King, on another very rare, very excellent record. The band's in similar form here, although not ... LP, Vinyl record album

Showtime
Smash, 1964. Very Good
One of the odder James Brown records from the 60s – as it includes 11 studio tracks with overdubbed audience. James was under contract with King at the same time, and couldn't record new vocal material for Smash – so the record doesn't contain any JB originals, but covers of Louis ... LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1971. Very Good-
One of the wilder James Brown instrumental LPs from the late King period. The James Brown Band is fronted by a heavy fuzzy guitar sound, which gives the LP a sort of rock break feel, with nice fuzzy electric tones. All tracks are by James and Dave Matthews, and the record is sort of a second ... LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1970. Very Good-
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album

2 Hot!
Polydor, 1978. Very Good
A mega-hit from Peaches & Herb – best known for the crossover classic "Reunited", but equally great for a host of modern soul groovers! The duo first achieved fame at the end of the 60s – through a set of key pop soul tracks that had a warm and sweet finish. Here, though ... LP, Vinyl record album

Red Black & Green
Polydor, 1973. Near Mint-
Seminal early funk work from Roy Ayers! The record catches him at that perfect point when he was turning from a straight jazz player into a sinister force in 70s funk – and the group on the session includes super-hip soul jazz giants like Charles Tolliver, Sonny Fortune, and Harry Whitaker, ...
