Now while I don't consider myself to be a 'philistine' when it comes to music, I had NEVER heard of Oscar Brown Jr before. That was until August last year, when I heard a song on Craig Charles' Funk and Soul Show (on 6 Music) which just completely captivated me - it turned out to be 'Ladiesman'.
On the strength of that song I bought this album (plus the earlier 'Sin and Soul'), and whilst I wasn't immediately taken with many of the tracks on it (probably because they weren't like 'Ladiesman'), I still gave it a few listens and I started to get into it. I am now completely smitten and throughly enjoy all 33 minutes and 16 seconds of it.
This is truly a very good/ excellent album, and one I would recommend if you like to broaden your musical horizons.

As for Oscar Brown Jr, he seems to have been somewhat forgotten for his contribution to changing the type of music black American artists recorded during the 1960's and 70's. A real shame. (although as he isn't easily 'pigeon holed', it's perhaps not all that surprising)

Dolemite Deep ! 27 May 2009
By Eddie Landsberg - Published on Amazon.com
The late great Oscar Brown Jr. was a one of a kind original Jazz hipster poet/singer/songwriter artist - -
A slick smooth talker, before Gil Scott Heron and Melvin Van Peebles, he wasn't afraid of being controversial...
and emerging after Babs Gonzales, he was one of the few who could really could be said to walk in the hipster tradition long after it was hip to be hep (and he was !)

This album presents the FUNKY SIDE of Oscar Brown circa 1972, and woe daddy, was he DOLEMITE funky...

As for the sound... actually sounds like an Allen Tousaint production... I think there's a lot of Crescent City funk in the groove, say similar to what Dr. John and LaBelle were doing at the time... however, credits reveal that actually it was produced by the great Joel Dorn and the rhythm section includes Bernard Purdie, Cornell Dupree and David "Fathead" Newman to name a few... Needless to say, all the tracks bump... however, the catch is that its not just the music that makes the album great is that Brown was a street poet first and foremost... one with a biting sense of humor and reality... so what you get is an album that's sharply produced, funky, and full of lyrics that you actually find yourself following from the beginning to the the end of each tune - - my favorite being Ladiesman, about an aging hustler lamenting the gradual loss of his sexual prowess. - - If you dig this album, besides checking out Gil, The Hustler's Convention (Lightening Rod), you might also like Eugene McDaniel's HEADLESS HEROES.

Note: As funky as this one is, he's got an even funkier one: Dig FRESH !

Trailblazer! 2 May 2008
By Star Thrower - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Before Marvin Gaye or Curtis Mayfield there was Oscar Brown Jr. One of the sharpest wits to employ his talents to pen and song. When it comes to clever lyrics and vocal delivery, Oscar Brown Jr was second to none. This early 70s release is a funk filled affair featuring a host of great players such as David "Fathead" Newman, Bernard Purdie, and Richard Tee. Brown's caustic portrayal of women in "Walk Away" may be out of vogue in the age of political correctness, but it's all in good fun. Mr. Brown obviously loves women. He'll tell you all about it in his satirical self tribute "Ladies Man". Some of the other songs deal with the rigors of a life teetering on the brink of poverty. Commercial success eluded Brown throughout his long career. The album closes with Young Man, a heartfelt tribute to a fallen friend. Thanks to the late Joel Dorn and now to Collectable Records for rescuing this fine album from obscurity.

A good example of Oscar's work for Atlantic 3 Aug 2002
By Roger Rebec - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't find Oscar's Atlantic recordings as easy to listen to as his Columbia or Fontana work. The heavier soul style arrangements do tend to obscure the lyrics somewhat. I must give it another play; I've never noticed the objectionable language referred to in other reviews. That said, Oscar's observations on life are always worth a listen. This certainly isn't my favourite Oscar Brown Jr album but I do get something from it when I play it.

Let me introduce you to Oscar Brown Jr. - the God-Father of Rap 22 Nov 2014
By Duane L Lumpkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Hey Folks, you may not have ever heard of Oscar Brown, Jr. but let this be fair warning - you've been missin' the origin of rap the way it was intended to be put down. The truth of the matter is all you have to do is listen to "A Ladiesman" and you're caught up. This brother is soooooo smooth and captivating in this song you'll wonder why this wasn't on your radio today. He weaves a story about an old ladies' man schoolin' a youngblood about his journey as player and how to run the game until he can't run it anymore. It's a priceless and timeless rap that is backed up by a smooth jazz groove. It's soulful and sexy without being too forward; it's strong and manly without being too vain; the women will smile in approval and the brothers will nod quietly with a chuckle in agreement as this soul rap lays down the 'sweet science' of seduction. The rest of the tunes are playful and witty as this old player play on words and experience of the timeless game of love and tomfoolery. You'll love this old-timers' history lesson, it's full of good old jazz music and R&B grooves. Check it out. It's one of my favorites and I'm sure it'll become one of yours too.
