James Brown was not an albums artist. That’s a bad sales pitch. We’re here to talk about Brown’s best albums, after all. But any statement to the contrary would be a lie. Brown released nearly 70 albums and most of those came between 1959 and 1976. But paring down Brown’s career to the indispensable highlights misses something essential about the accurately self-styled Hardest Working Man In Show Business. More than anything, Brown was a striver. Brown kicks off the album by dropping an anthem for the entire Black Power movement and just over 10 minutes later, he’s singing Mama, come here quick, and bring me that licking stick over Jimmy Nolen’s trademark chicken scratch. But even Brown’s less fleshed-out songs and slow-burning covers like Let Them Talk managed to reach out their tendrils and find important folks to inspire.
The two CDs feature more than two hours of unprecedented riveting riffs created by James Brown and his core of multi-talented band members taken from a decade's worth of their work together. the instrumental music behind "ain't it funky" should continue to awe listeners with its sophistication and unadulterated appeal to "take 'em to the bridge".
