4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Richard Farr on 13 Nov. 2009
Format: Audio CD
These compilations of James Brown singles offer a fascinating, 'step by step' insight into the development of the music of this icon of soul & funk. Save for James' 1960s/70s live appearances at the Apollo, his legend has probably never been bettered served.

Concentrating on the the 3 later volumes [1967-72 inclusive : where my personal interest largely lies], here lie chronologically presented singles with both parts [e.g. 'Say it loud - I'm black & I'm proud', 'Hot pants'], with different mixes [e.g. 'Licking stick'] & in alternate takes [e.g. 'I guess I'll have to cry, cry, cry'] together with rarely heard 'oddities' [e.g. the upbeat, yet poignant 'Santa Claus goes straight to the ghetto'].

With some artists, hearing 2 or more versions of the same tune follow each other can be held as a criticism, but the way the sequencing is set to a virtual segue here, they are heard as an almost seemless extension of the same track. Almost early versions of that 80s phenomenon - the 12 inch extended mix. Infact, so clever is this element of the discs that perhaps without realising it, 4 versions of 'Licking Stick' pass by on Disc 1 of the 1967-69 volume. Any listener not simultaneously studying the sleeve could be forgiven for assuming this to be a single early James Brown funk workout.

And with around 40 tracks per volume, the sets represent terrific value for money for fans looking for more than just another greatest hits. I agree with the comment made by the first reviewer regarding the strip placed at the top edge of the jewel case & the resultant 'stickiness' in that area. It is an irritation, although something that seems to frequent a number of American produced discs on import.

I've bought all 5 volumes so far and they're all great. Really nicely presented with loads of information. A couple of minor criticisms though. The print in the booklet is really small so quite a challenge for an old codger like me. The second thing is more to do with the packaging. For some inexplicable reason Universal insist on sticking the Bar code and Title on a sticky label attached to the top of the CD case. Each one takes about 10 minutes to peel/scrape off and annoyingly leaves deposits of sticky glue on the case. Universal, please desist from this annoying practice! Having said that, these are minor gripes and Alan Leeds and Harry Weinger are to be congratulated for presenting James Brown's musical legacy with the care and attention it deserves.

Another must-have....for everyone! 26 May 2008
By Phil S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Another "dream collection" from Universal/Hip-O Select and the great reissue Producer Harry Weinger.
For the initiated - mostly the fans who paced the floor wondering what the next James Brown (or Bobby Byrd or Marva Whitney) single would sound like, this is a stone-keeper. For those here for Orientation, listen and learn. And dance.
Yes, we wondered what the next JB King single from Soul Brother Number One, might sound like, and although some said, well, roughly like the one before, we studied them and noticed that each release was more complex and creative than the one before. This was the Soul-to-Funk transition period, and it was exciting.
The alternate, overseas pressing of "I Guess I'll Have To Cry, Cry, Cry" is ofcourse one of those proverbial worth-the-price-of-admission; as is "You Got To Have A Job", a great uptempo duet with Marva, who, as always, injects so much emotionalism tempered with artistry that it's impossible not send a signal to that CD-deck to play it one more time. Back in the late '60s, I'd make that jump from red courduroy covered bed to the turntable and with a surgeon's touch, ease the needle down again.
Those memories are great, before "portability", when listening was at home...and very personal. Now with digital enhancing we can really hear that otherworldly yet earthy band deliver on original studio sides...long before they got disco-fied.
Right now I'm pacing the floor in my computer room in happy anticipation of Volume 6 and..."World, Part Two".

By MAXIMILLIAN MUHAMMAD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this is Prime time James Brown the Sho Nuff, Sho Nuff. James Brown is one of the Greatest Musical Forces Ever and this Hits collection of Singles showcases this and so much more. this is Prime time JB. Great Production, SOulful Singing and Arrangements strong Instrumentation and at the heart of it all James Brown bringing the force and Power leading the Grooves. this is a Must have. JB changed the sound of Music and paved the way for so many Artists thereafter. the Godfather is well represented on this Collection.
