The cover looks a bit cheesy – like some sort of Star Search graphic – but the album's a rock-solid gem from the second decade of Nigerian funk – recorded in Lagos with a great boogie vibe, and a groove that's as heavy on keyboards as it is on riffing guitar and percussion!

King/Orfeon (Mexico), 1967. Very Good+ ... $24.99
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!

King, 1967. Good ... $7.99
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!

James BrownReality ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the last great albums from James Brown! Not as totally sublime as Payback or some of the others from the 70s – but James is still working here with Fred Wesley and Dave Matthews – and many of the cuts retain the funk of a few years past.

Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s!

Elephant, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A pretty unusual record from Nappy Brown – very different than his earlier work!

Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth!

What can we say? Classic Vee Jay material by The Iceman, and some of the most sophisticated soul you'll ever hear.
