5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best JB starter album for beginners., 12 Jan 2000
By A Customer
After playing this album to a mate of mine in the car the other day, I managed to convert him to the funky sound that is James Brown. Includes his `50's and `60's hits Please, Please, Please and Night Train aswell as his `70's disco anthem Sex Machine. The real treat is the final track - Soul Power "Live". Being strategically placed at the end of the album, it makes the listener beg for more thus resulting in the purchase of many live albums. Bobby Byrd backs the Godfather up as fantastically as he does, stepping into the limelight at just the right times for the right amount of time to make it all work. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars What you gonna play now JB?, 12 Aug 2000
I don't know, but whatever I'm gonna play it's got to be FUNKY.
The spoken intro to "Make it funky" defines the spirit of this album, and of Brown's whole life. Almost all the famous hits are here, with only a few slightly ropy 80s ones in the middle that are worth skipping. Still, with getting on for 20 tracks, over half of which are classics, there's no way this can't get 5*s.

This review is from: Sex Machine - The Very Best Of James Brown (Audio CD)
This is for me probably the best James Brown best of's out there.. and theres quite a few as im sure you've noticed and there'll probably be a few more i'd imagine too.. this has all the best ones pretty much for me and in a nice flowing order..

if your not grooving by the end of it - you should get an appointment with your doctor the next day, you've got a big problemo!

all good music collections need this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grunts and Screams Guaranteed, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There`s nothing more to add on the career of James Brown as it`s all been said before - the trick is to find a decent, reasonably priced compilation as a starting point if you`re curious but aren`t going to invest in a weighty box set. This is it. Play it loud in the car
