Phenomenal compilation of Mr Brown's finest works.
From the moment the ubiquitous horns blast in the intro of 'Papa's Got a Brand New Bag', you know it's a mutha.
Classics such as 'Funky Drummer'- with that long-sampled drum break -and 'The Payback' are here, and cause me to shake my tush. Plus anthems such as 'Say It Loud (I'm Black and I'm Proud)' and 'It's a Man's World' jostle daily for position in my CD player.
A funkin' great album from a funkin' great artist :)
