The "revolution" in the title is certainly well-placed – because right from the start, James Brown was out to forever change the face of music in America! If you only know James from his later funk recordings, or even his big 60s hits, you'll find plenty to be amazed at here – as these early King/
Federal recordings have a really raw sound that blends together 50s R&B styles with all those unique vocal, instrumental, and rhythmic twists that James was experimenting with at the time – sometimes with backing vocals from The Famous Flames, sometimes just with the Godfather out front on his own! The collection brings together a few dozen titles from these great early years – with titles that include "No No No No", "Hold My Baby's Hand", "Begging Begging", "I Want You So Bad", "Got To Cry", "Good Good Lovin", "I Know It's True", "I'll Go Crazy", "You've Got The Power", "Wonder When You're Coming Home", "That Dood It", "I Walked Alone", "Love Or A Game", "Chonnie On Chon", "Just Won't Do Right", and the classics "Think
" and "Please Please Please".
