2.0 out of 5 stars Super Bad? Not Quite, 12 May 2014
By 
This review is from: Super Bad (Audio CD)
Originally released in 1971, Super Bad is another "live" album by James Brown compiled in the style of the first half of the previous year's Sex Machine. In other words, it's a collection of studio tracks edited together with applause to give the impression of it being a live show.

It's an alright album for what it is, but it's worth bearing in mind that some of the material is easily available elsewhere in better quality - for example, the title track has added reverb, presumably with the intention of making it sound more live, but a clean version of exactly the same recording can be found on the more modern Funk Power compilation.

The CD is currently only available as an expensive Japanese release, so I'd say its probably only of interest to James Brown obsessives or completists.

I'll give Super Bad two stars. The music is good enough, it's just a shame it was edited into being a fake live performance.

Tracklist;

Super Bad
Let It Be Me
Sometime
A Man Has To Go back To The Crossroads
Giving Out Of Juice
By The Time I Get Back To Phoenix

One final quick point about the reviews so far given for this product; Every review except mine has been given a bunch of "helpful" votes. My review has been voted down into minus numbers as being "unhelpful".

Those "helpful" reviews are all for a completely different product, not the listed album. They are for the wrong album. This review is for the actual product, the listed album, the correct album.

I don't review products because I'm seeking votes, but with things like that happening I am left wondering why I bother trying to provide people with useful and accurate information.
