James BrownAin't It Funky ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer from James Brown – and one of his best instrumental albums of the King years! The record has James working with the pre-JBs James Brown Band – a tight assemblage of players who really know how to craft an off-kilter groove. The guitar's popping on the beat here as much as the horns, making for a syncopated groove that's utterly fantastic – as tight as a drum, and as funky as one too! Includes some great long cuts – like the 9 minute, two-part versions of "Ain't It Funky" and "Fat Wood" – plus some great shorter funky 45 type material, like "Nose Job", "Use Your Mother", "Give It Up Or Turnit Loose", and a version of "Cold Sweat". All the work here is tremendous – the kind of inspirational funky material that makes the album a lasting classic decade after decade! CD

James BrownAmazing James Brown & The Famous Flames ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
Amazing is right – because even at this early stage, James Brown was a killer – sounding harder and heavier than most of his pre-soul contemporaries – and busting out in a stunning sound that instantly put him on the map! This overstuffed early set features some great tracks that move past the more famous hits – 12 numbers that show James at a key point between R&B and early soul. Titles include "Just You & Me Darling", "Dancin Little Thing", "Lost Someone", "You Don't Have To Go", "And I Do Just What I Want", "Come Over Here", "Love Don't Love Nobody", and "The Bells". Reissued with the original cover too! CD

Polygram, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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)".

Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $1.99
Two tasty organ instrumentals, with Brother James at the funky keys. "Devil's Hideaway" is a good groover written by Nat Jones for James, and "Who's Afraid" is a cut that always sounds great on organ, which is why so many 60's Hammond Heroes covered it! 7-inch, Vinyl record

James BrownEscape-Ism (parts 1, 2, 3) ... 7-inch
People/Get On Down, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 10.98
A killer early funky track by James and The JBs – and one that has that perfect improvised funk groove that the band was honing at the time. The band vamps in the background with a nice choppy riff – while James raps over the top, goading them on, and driving them onto new funky heights. Classic stuff – and with three parts to the track, the whole thing's 50% funkier than other 45s that just have two parts! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A great double-length album from James – filled with a wide range of cuts that are brought together only by his genius, creating an insane mix of grooves that's totally entertaining throughout! Features a long version of "Get On The Good Foot", plus other excellent bits like "The Whole World Needs Liberation", "Nothing Beats A Try But A Fail", "My Part/Make It Funky", "I Got a Bag Of My Own", "Funky Side of Town", "Dirty Harri", and the amazing "Recitation by Hank Ballard", in which Hank talks about how great James is, and how much he saved his career!

James BrownGettin' Down To It ... LP
King, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
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 necessarily as funky – and they do a great job of giving James' vocals a jazzy twist that they don't have on other albums – proving yet again that The Godfather can handle just about any sort of groove that he wants! Features a wonderfully groover version of "Sunny", which moves along very nicely – plus remakes of "There Was A Time" and "Cold Sweat", along with the tracks "Uncle" and "That's Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has an unglued bottom seam.)

King, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Part two's of two great James Brown tracks! "Gittin' A Little Hipper" is one of our favorite instrumentals from JB late 60's period, and it's got a great rolling groove to it, with a very tasty sax solo by Pee Wee! "Let A Man Come In" is a real stormer from James, and one that you don't see on wax that much. Plus, it's another part 2 – with a rolling open ended groove, and lots of shouting by James! 7-inch, Vinyl record

James BrownGrits & Soul ... LP
Smash, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Reissue of one of the grooviest of the James Brown instrumental albums recorded for Smash. Unlike some of the other weaker albums on Smash, this one's got a great batch of material, most of which are originals, and not weak covers of pop stuff. Plus, the tracks are longer than usual, which gives the band a lot of time to stretch out and get really groovy. Tracks include: "Grits", "There", "Wee Wee", and "Mister Hip". Very groovy.

James BrownHell ... LP
Polydor, 1974. Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
JB's wildest album, with a crazy cover that shows him running away from the devil, and great gatefold inner photo with him standing amidst a bunch of declarations of "Hell". The record is a double album filled with lots of different styles from James' funky bag. Nicer bits include "My Thang", "Hell", and "A Man Has To Go Back To The Crossroads" – but the real highlight is the epic 13 minute version of "Papa Don't Take No Mess", as tight and jamming as any cut from Doin' It to Death or The Payback!

James BrownI Got The Feelin' ... 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 Got You (I Feel Good) ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
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 never sounds better than here, on James' original version – one of those cuts that never gets old! The hit's also nicely offset by a number of other more obscure numbers that make the album really worth tracking down – titles that include "I Can't Help It (I Just Do Do Do)", "Good Good Lovin", "I've Got Money", "Three Hearts In A Tangle", "You've Got The Power", and "Love Don't Love Nobody" – all on the rougher side of the JB spectrum.

You can easily get about 30 singles in the box – and the square, hard design offers a lot more protection than a softer record bag, too. It's a beauty! Misc

An excellent early Nat Adderley record that has the funky trumpet player groovin' in the company of a number of bright young players from New Orleans, including Nat Perrilliat on tenor, Ellis Marsalis (yes, that one) on piano, and James Black on drums. Sam Jones plays funky bass, and brother Cannonball joins on on alto for a nice set of groovers that includes "In The Bag", "Sister Wilson", "Low Brown", and "New Arrival". Nice stuff, and we don't really see this one that much these days. CD

AkaCrazy Joe ... CD
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
