These ARE JBs greatest hits. There are several other best of compilations out there but this covers all bases. James Brown was absolutely fantastic and unique. If you haven't listened to much of his music this is the perfect place to start, don't hesitate.
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 :)
