Killer funk from the prime early 70s years of James Brown – that time when it seemed that each new single pushed the boundaries of funk even farther than before! The set follows Brown's last few years with King into his monumental time with Polydor – a really groundbreaking batch of work that set the world on fire even more than Brown's best grooves of the 60s – cuts that are harder-edged, harder-hitting, and harder-jamming than anything anyone would have imagined a few years before – thanks to help from an ever-improving lineup of the JBs who jam so much that some tracks extend past a "part 2", into parts 3 and 4! Like other volumes in this amazing series, the set presents full details on each track – plus some great historical details and even some vintage photos – all of which make the 2CD package essential to have, even if you own some of these original 45s. Plus, there's some rare mixes here, promo versions, and even a "Fight Against Drug Abuse" radio announcement – nestled alongside classics like "Sex Machine (parts 1 & 2)", "Super Bad (parts 1 & 2)", "Soul Power (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Escape-ism (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "My Brother (parts 1 & 2)", "I'm A Greed
y Man (parts 1 & 2)", "Get Up Get Into It Get Involved (parts 1 & 2)", "Hey America (voc, inst)", "Santa Claus Is Definitely Here To Stay (voc, inst)", "Hot Pants (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Talking Loud & Saying Nothing (parts 1 & 2)", and "My Part/
Make It Funky (parts 1, 2, 3, & 4)" – plus "Just Won't Do Right" by Lyn Collins.
