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

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".

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!

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)".

One of the best of Brother James' instrumental records for Smash, and a record that has him out front, wailing at the organ. While James has never been one of the true virtuosos of the instrument, he plays with a sense of style and adventure that make his best LPs sing with energy. This one's got a lot of nice original cuts, including "Hot Mix", "Oh! Henry", "Get Loose", and "The King". Nice grooves, and a very solid backing by Nat Jones and the James Brown Band.

Polydor, 1974. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Reissue of 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 was originally 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 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

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". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

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 BrownIn The Jungle Groove – Expanded & Remastered ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s/1986. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Massive – and one of the best James Brown compilations ever, filled with rare and unreleased material! This completely essential set features tracks pulled from James' best years ever – the mighty early 70s, when he was working with the JBs, and laying down tracks that would forever change the face of funk! The tunes on the album are right up there with the best work on classic albums like The Payback, Doin It To Death, Hot Pants, and any of the other killer Polydor funk albums by James – and most of them were pulled from sessions for those records, and brought together in this format for the first time in the late 80s. The centerpiece of the set is a 9 minute version of "Funky Drummer", and other highlights include new versions of "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose (remix)", "Soul Power (mono re-edit)", and "Talkin' Loud & Sayin' Nothin (remix)". The set's also got bonus beats of "Funky Drummer", a long single take of "Hot Pants (She Got To Use What She Got To Get What She Wants)" (8:42 minutes long!), and the nice rare track "I Got To Move" – previously unreleased, and nice and long! Plus, this new version features the previously unissued extended mix of "Blind Man Can See It". CD

King/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
James Brown, proud and loud – a smoking 60s album that provides a great link between his earlier styles and his freer roots – with a brilliant blend of funk, soul, and a touch of raw R&B! Given the power of The Godfather at this point, there's no denying that even the older cuts have a punch that few others could match – making for a record that feels mighty darn unified, despite the stretch of time between a few of the recordings. Titles include the funky gems "Ain't That a Groove (pts 1 & 2)", "The Scratch", "Is It Yes or Is It No", and James' great version of "The Bells" that's always been one of our favorites – plus Just You & Me", "I Love You Yes I Do", "Come Over Here", and "I Don't Mind". The cover also comes with an "autographed" photo of James on the back with the text "James Brown Fans – Frame This 8 x 10 Picture" – and an image that says "Soul Brother #1 Is Peeking At You Thru The Key Hole"!

Virgin (UK), 1990s/Early 2000s. Used ... $6.99
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)".

Now Again, Early 70s. Used ... $10.99
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

Vicki Anderson's work is great too – hard funky diva sides that are right up there with the best Marva Whitney and Lyn Collins work of the time. The whole thing's great – and titles include "My Concerto", "Never Get Enough", "I Need Help", "Keep On Doin' What You're Doin", and "Hang It Up", "Signed Sealed & Delivered", "If You Got A Love", and "You've Got To Change Your Mind" by Bobby Byrd; "I'm Too Tough For Mr Big Stuff", "Sound Funky", "Don't Throw Your Love In the Garbage Can", "I'll Work It Out", and "In The Land Of Milk & Honey" by Vicki Anderson – plus "Once You Get Started" and "You're Welcome Stop On By", both recorded by Vicki under the name Mommie-O! 18 tracks in all – and a great companion to the James Brown Funky People sets!

Collectables, 1965. Used ... $8.99
This landmark live recording by the great Chicago soul singer Gene Chandler is one of the first-ever true live sets by a soul star, and a record that rival's James Brown's Live At the Apollo for true energy and excitement. Recorded live at Chicago's Regal Theater for the long-gone Constellation Records, this set's an amazing batch of tracks performed with more emotion and soul than Gene ever had in the studio, and the crowd's a wild batch of kids who are totally over the top with enthusiasm. The classic version of "Rainbow '65" on here is enough proof of that, what with it's stretched out harmonies, mind-blowing falsetto, and crazy crowd screaming – but there's lots more on here that will prove that Gene was one of the best-ever Chicago singers, including "Song Called Soul", "Just Be True", and "What Now". Great stuff, and totally worth having, even if you don't like Collectables. CD

At some level, it seems like Lyn's taking on the rest of the soul industry – showing them that she can kick some major booty on her interpretations of hits like "Backstabbers", "If You Don't Know Me By Now", "Try A Little Tenderness", and "Mr Big Stuff", which is one of her best funky tracks ever, and better than Jean Knight's original! She also shines extremely well on the original cuts, though – especially the funky classic "Rock Me Again & Again & Again", plus the often-overlooked mellow soul groovers "To Each His Own", "Put It On The Line", and "How Long Can I Keep It Up". Production by James Brown, of course! LP, Vinyl record album

Lyn CollinsThink (About It) ... LP
People, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The funkiest album ever recorded by Lyn Collins – a stone solid set that really lives up to the legacy of her funky 45s! Like those gems, this one has Collins working with James Brown on production and the JBs in the background – creating a razor-sharp groove that's probably the closest any female singer ever came in the 70s to matching The Godfather's groove! The album's got Lyn shifting between heavy funk numbers and mellower soul cuts – really pushing things to the max with an incredibly deep take on a few older favorites, plus some killer new numbers – all produced to funky perfection, with just the right sort of balance between the rough and the tight. Titles include her great version of "Think", a funky sample cut that never gets old – plus the cuts "Things Got To Get Better", "Women's Lib", "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Just Won't Do Right", "Wheels Of Life", and the funkiest version ever of "Fly Me To The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Think (About It) (with bonus poster & 7-inch single) ... LP 26.99
