The Godfather of Funk,
This review is from: Make It Funky - The Big Payback: 1971-1975 (Audio CD)
James Brown got me into funk in the first place. After years spent looking out and listening to lots of other stuff in the genre, some pretty rare and obscure...I can honestly say NO-ONE does it better than the man himself. With his backing band the JB's behind him he made some of his best music in the late 60's to the mid 70's, with some of the best tunes in this compilation. Seriously addictive head nodding and feet tapping stuff, catchy is an understatement. Everyone knows his big hits but this is where his real groove lay. Do your feet a favour and give your ears a funk injection and get this. If this is up your street, the JB's anthology 'Funky Good Time' should be next'
