✨✧ James BrownBest Of Live At The Apollo – 50th Anniversary Edition (with unreleased tracks) ... CD
King/Universal, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Not just a "best of" from James Brown's legendary recordings at the Apollo Theater – but a set that also unearths two rare tracks from the never-issued album Get Down At The Apollo With The JBs! The core of the set presents the best moments from Live At The Apollo Volumes 1, 2, and 3 – all records that not only helped set the tone for 60s soul to come, but which further went onto elevate the place of live recordings in pop music in general – and really illustrate the way an artist could be even more exciting live than in the studio! James is completely on fire here – working with sharp energy and amazing dexterity – as are his backing bands – completely mesmerizing throughout, and showing us that funky soul at its best hardly relies on any tricks in the studio or production techniques. The set features the previously unreleased live versions of "Hot Pants Road" and "There It Is" – plus "I'll Go Crazy", "Sex Machine", "Get Up Get Into It Get Involved", "Soul Power", "Cold Sweat", "There Was A Time", "Try Me", and "Please Please Please".

James BrownBlack Caesar ... CD
Polygram, 1973. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s! Nearly every cut's a winner, and James gets some very funky help from The JBs, who groove hard on the best instrumental cuts, plus Lyn Collins, who sings a sock version of "Mama Feelgood" that's worth the price of the record alone! Includes the classic "Down & Out in New York City", plus "Blind Man Can See It", "Sportin' Life", "The Boss", "Dirty Harri", and "Chase". CD

✨✧ James BrownCold Sweat ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
A stone classic from Brother James – a wonderful 60s album that not only includes the incredible title track – one of James' best groovers from the time – but a set that also showcases his talents in so many other styles too! There's a few wonderful ballads – but completely recast by James into songs of pride and power – and some older R&B-styled numbers that hearken back to his earliest years at King – all of which makes for a really rich demonstration of that unique James Brown energy that nobody else in the 60s could ever hope to touch! The Godfather's vocals burst out nicely with some wonderfully soulful overtones, no matter what the tune – and titles include "Fever", "Good Rockin Tonight", "Back Stabbin", "Mona Lisa", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "Nature Boy" and "I Want To Be Around" – as well as "Cold Sweat (parts 1 & 2)".

James BrownGet On Up – The James Brown Story ... LP
Polydor/Universal, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $27.99 34.98
A set put together as the soundtrack for the James Brown bio-pic – but one that features mostly original recordings by The Godfather himself, and a few older cuts altered a bit for the film! The groove runs from early 60s soul to early 70s funk – and there's a fair bit of live tracks, which go well to display James at his vibrant concert best. About a quarter of the material seems to be vintage recordings, augmented with some new performances or vocals to fit the scenes in the film – but these fit well alongside the classics, to a point where there's hardly much discernable difference (as well as little in the notes to explain them as well.) Tracks include "Sex Machine", "Mother Popcorn (part 1)", "It's A Man's Man's Man's World (live)", "I Got The Feelin (live)", "Soul Power (live)", "Try Me (live)", "Please Please Please", "Get Up Offa That Thing", "I Can't Stand Myself (live)", and "I Got You".

James BrownHot Pants ... LP
Polydor, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
James Brown really opens up on this early 70s classic – really showing the world the amazing groove he was crafting with his band – who were let loose to jam in the studio, spinning out some really long grooves – which were then cut down to make this sweet little record! The title cut was a big single for James at the time, but it's presented here in its full 9 minute version – a monstrous jam that's equal to anything on the Payback record, or the JBs albums too – and the album also includes the long two-part take of "Escapism", and another funky gem – "Blues & Pants", which snaps along for a solid 9 minutes too! The album's filled with heavy funk, and the longer tracks allow for plenty of instrumental flourishes from Fred, Maceo, and the other JBs – and honestly, the record is more of a People Records session than a Polydor record from James.

✨✧ James BrownI Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
A great lost album from James Brown – and totally funky! The record's got a super-hip cover that shows James standing in a blue room with three fine foxy ladies, and the words "I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me" are emblazoned across the top – and the whole thing's as super funky as it looks! The record features many obscure King singles from the mid and late 60s, great little tunes that we always enjoy on funky 45s, and which are sewn together into one of the rawer James Brown LPs from the decade. James and the band are playing Vox instruments – as you can tell by the shameless ad on the back cover – and the record has a garagey funk sound that reminds us of the best Desco work by artists like Lee Fields & Joseph Henry. A prize in any funk collection – and with the cuts "The Soul Of JB", "I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Get It Together (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky Soul #1", "Why Did You Take Your Love From Me", and "Baby Baby Baby Baby". Also features the funky hit "There Was A Time" – always a treat! CD

King/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
Funky funky funky! A nice one on King that shows the direction James Brown would take in the 70s – a bit harder and more funky than before, with even more of a focus on the instrumental talents of the ensemble! The band here is super-sharp – playing with that tightly focused, highly funky groove that James virtually invented at the time – ringing out with pride and boldness that are undeniable! The album mixes a few older obscure numbers with the best newer ones – and the set's a no-filler package that's filled with great cuts! Titles include "Stone Fox", "Maybe Good – Maybe Bad (parts 1 & 2)", "Here I Go", "I Got The Feelin", "You Got The Power", and "Just Plain Funk". CD

✨✧ James BrownI'm Real ... CD
Scotti Bros, 1988. Used ... $4.99
James Brown gets a new injection of life at the end of the 80s – thanks to a collaboration here with Full Force, who wrote, arranged, and produced the album! The groove here is often more in a Full Force mode than you might expect from James – a full-on 80s urban sound, filled with plenty of beats at the bottom, yet still allowing The Godfather plenty of space to do his thing vocally! In a way, the format's almost a bit like some of the James Brown remix work that was showing up around the same time – except that the tunes are all new, and somewhat different territory for James. Titles include "I'm Real", "Static (parts 1 & 2)", "You & Me", "Time To Get Busy", "She Looks All Types A Good", "Keep Keepin", and "Can't Git Enuf". CD

James BrownIt's A Mother ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
A definite mother from James Brown – the kind of all-funky album that few of his contemporaries could ever hope to match! If you've ever doubted the sheer raw power of James at the end of the 60s, the first few notes of this one will definitely make you a convert – and the stretched-out grooves as the album rolls on will pull you even further into the fold. Most tracks roll on with that improvised studio jamming style that James was hitting at the time – a pre-JBs mode that's not as long as later years, but which still makes you feel that there probably was plenty more recorded on the dates that didn't make it into the two-part versions of the tracks! And although James is singing on most numbers, the real focus is more on the band – hitting hard, vamping sharp, and grooving massively under shouted calls and directions from Brown. Titles include two great instrumentals – "Popcorn With a Feeling" and "Top of the Stack" – plus "Little Groove Maker Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Mother Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Mashed Potato Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Any Day Now", "You're Still Out Of Sight", and "I'm Shook" – as well as the great mellower number "If I Ruled The World" – redone here as an African-American anthem of pride and power!

Uptempo funky James from the end of the 70s – aimed at the discos, but with that funky sound of earlier days still pretty much in place! In other words, there's plenty of funky instrumentation in the cuts – a bit faster than in earlier years, but still quite nice – plus occasional flourishes of strings, to give the cuts a bit more of a disco approach. 7-inch, Vinyl record

James BrownJames Brown At The Garden ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
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! CD

King/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record! The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in any setting – as it brings together funky bits with more straightforward soul numbers. Tracks include the great funky numbers "Money Won't Change You" and "Bring It Up", both of which show the new hard sound of James coming to the forefront – plus the tracks "Stone Fox", "Tell Me That You Love Me", "Money Won't Change You (parts 1 & 2)', "Let Yourself Go", and the hip message cut "Don't Be A Drop Out".

Polydor, 1962. New Copy ... $2.99 9.98
A landmark album that forever changed the face of live recordings! As has been told and retold often, King records not only had the genius idea of bringing recording equipment into the Apollo Theater to catch James in a smoking live setting – but they also went out of their way to record and re-record the audience, creating a wonderful interplay on the record between James and the crowd. The result is the stuff of legend – and the record's filled with loads of nice tracks like "I'll Go Crazy", "Try Me", "I Don't Mind", "Lost Someone", "Think", The massive medley featuring "Please, Please, Please", "I Want You So Bad", "I Love You, Yes I Do", "Strange Things Happen" and more, and "Night Train".

King, 1968. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $16.99
James Brown's great second album recorded live at the Apollo Theater in Harlem – a set we like even better than the first famous volume – because it's much more stretched-out, harder-hitting, and full of fire! You'd be hard pressed to find a better example of Brown's showmanship on record – as James urges the band through these triple-time takes on some of his classics, and turns in some amazing work in the process! The set includes a killer long version of "There Was A Time" – almost the blueprint of the James Brown funk sound to come – and other titles include "Bring It Up", "Let Yourself Go", and a wonderful duet version of "Think" – plus "Prisoner Of Love", "Out Of Sight", "Try Me", "It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World", "Lost Someone","Thanks", "Cold Sweat", "I Feel Alright", and "Please, Please, Please".

James BrownLove Power Peace – Live At The Olympia Paris 1971 (3LP set) ... LP
Polydor/Sundazed, 1971. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $47.99 49.99
A lost treasure from James Brown & The JBs – a vintage live performance from the early 70s, and one that captures the group at the height of their powers! The format here is very similar to the excellent Revolution Of The Mind set – a totally funky, totally righteous live performance that has James and the group even more energized than in the studio – working with the kind of razor-sharp intensity that made them a legendary funk act – leaping from tune to tune with nary a break at all! Bobby Byrd acts as the MC, and joins James for a bit of vocals – and the group at this point still includes Bootsy Collins on bass, plus loads of great guitar from Catfish Collins, and Fred Wesley on trombone and Jabo Starks on drums. Dave Matthews handled some of the arrangements – and titles include "Soul Power", "Sex Machine", "Bewildered", "It's A New Day", "Ain't It Funky Now", "Brother Rapp", "Super Bad", "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose", and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag/I Got You/I Got The Feelin". Note – this is the first presentation of the material exactly the way that James Brown intended – as a 3LP set, without the remixing from the previous CD – pulled right from the original reels!

James BrownPayback ... LP
Polydor/Universal, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $27.99 34.99
A masterpiece of funky soul – and one of the greatest albums of the early 70s! It all comes together on this one – funk, soul, politics, and production – and the record is still one of the clearest examples of James Brown's genius that you'll ever find! Recorded during the same sessions as the JBs album Damn Right I Am Somebody – Payback has the group backing James with amazing intensity, playing on and on for very long stretches, improvising jams that perfectly match the vocals, which are often as improvised as the music. The most famous example of this style at work is "The Payback", which begins with a simple head arrangement, then has James riffing off on politics and power, letting the band come in at just the right moment, dropping solos that are still some of the best ever recorded on a funk album. The rest of the album's equally great, and even though most tracks run close to 10 minutes, and the album's a 2LP set, most of the material stays fresher than any 3 minute funk record we've ever heard. Some tracks are separated by these cool voices that rise up as seques – and titles include "Stone To The Bone", "Mind Power", "Take Some Leave Some", and "Shoot Your Shot". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James BrownPrisoner Of Love ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
A classic early 60s set from James Brown – one that showcases the mellower side of his talents on a host of easygoing ballads! The approach is a bit like that used with Etta James over at Chess – as James rough-edged vocals are mixed with sweeter string arrangements from Sammy Lowe and Gene Redd – never too overdone, but filled with a great sense of sadness and loss that unlocks a whole new side of Brown's talents! "Prisoner Of Love" is a gem from the time that's almost James' equivalent to Etta's "At Last" – and the rest of the album follows in a similar mode, but also picks up the pace slightly near the end. Titles include "Prisoner Of Love", "Try Me", "So Long", "Waiting In Vain", "Lost Someone", and "Can You Feel It" – plus the groovy instrumental "The Thing In G", which is an early JB organ showcase!

Granadilla (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Aka are really opening up their bag here – starting off with the wonderful funky title cut "Crazy Joe", which has a rock-solid James Brown inspiration right from the start – then moving off into a range of different styles that really show them deepening their sound! The group were legendary in their Indonesian homeland – famous for tripped-out performances and some really heady sounds – and we can really see that legend live up to itself here – on an album that filters together so many hip modes, and almost feels like some of the coolest South American rock of the early 70s – which groups from that scene were making equally unique inroads! Some of the mellower tracks have this cool way of flanging out the vocals next to organ or keyboards – and the harder moments almost show a heavier style than the group's first two records. Titles include "Crazy Joe", plus "Maafkanlah", "Skip Away", "Bidadari", "Raja Jalan", "Kenangan Beku", and "Batu Nisan". CD

Virgin (UK), 1990s/Early 2000s. Used ... $9.99
An incredible collection of work by Brit soul legend Carleen Anderson – born of American parents (and James Brown bandmates) Bobby Byrd and Vicki Anderson, but a key figure in the London soul revival of the 1990s and beyond! The set brings together work from a wide array of sources – not just Carleen's initial solo records for Virgin, but also her more recent indie soul efforts, a few rare singles, and work with groups that include Young Disciples, Brand New Heavies, and Full Flava! Carleen's got an incredible voice that's easily one of the best bits of UK soul in the past 25 years – and the set list really features some of her best work ever, all tied up in one tidy package! Titles include "Apparently Nothin (Circa mix)", "Nervous Breakdown (radio)", "True Spirit", "Sights In The City (with Guru)", "Fortune's Drive (edit)", "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Let It Last", "Mama Said", "Leopards In The Temple", "Swinging Big Tom" and "Saturday Nite" (both with Brand New Heavies), "Stories" (with Full Flava)", "Dance In The Rain", and "Don't Look Back In Anger (live)".

Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 (with download) ... LP
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring".

A swirling blend of soul, funk, and jazzy grooves – and a super-rare album that we've never seen in the original! Supposedly, backing on the record is by the British Afro-Funk group Assagai – which sounds right to us, because there's a nice rolling conga groove on many of the tracks. Lead vocals are by Charles Hilton Brown, in a nicely raw soul style that reminds us a bit of Otis Redding, and a bit of Mike James Kirkland on some of his early 70s material. The record features vocal covers of a number of soul hits – like "Try A Little Tenderness", "Love Train", and "Ain't No Sunshine" – plus some originals that are even better, like the funky instrumental "GRF", and the tunes "Maddox" and "Tell Me Once Again". Nice and raw, and with a sound hip enough to match the record's cover! CD

A rarity from the early 90s funky underground by Bus People Express – who were alternately working as Soul Saints during this period – and they would soon trailblaze the contemporary funk scene as Poets Of Rhythm! "Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)" starts out with stripped-down drums and some gritty call and response group vocals, before the guitar and bass come storming in. Reminiscent of James Brown at his rawest and grittiest, ala Motherlode! "South Carolina" has a slower cooking style with some southern funky soul swagger, as you might guess from the title. A prescient blast of modern funk to come! 7-inch, Vinyl record

The stunning only album ever from the great Bobby Byrd – know to many as a longtime associate of James Brown, and finally getting his chance to shine here in the spotlight! Bobby was in the game before James, and always continued to change his groove in all the right ways with The Godfather – so this late 60s recording has Byrd coming across just like the best last James Brown material on King – with production from James, and backing from the same group too! There's loads of classics here that went onto become huge funky 45s over the years – and big sample cuts too – and titles include "I Need Help (I Can't Do It Alone) (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky Soul", "My Concerto", "You Got To Have A Job (If You Don't Work, You Can't Eat)", and "Hang Ups We Don't Need (The Hungry We've Got To Feed)".
