Foundations of Funk: A Brand New Bag (1964-1969)

"Mother Popcorn (Live)" When the history of 20th century music is written a hundred years from now, James Brown is going to be on the short list. He worked at a continuing high peak for practically 30 years, innovating, experimenting, discovering. Fresh as a farmer's market, the music he produced is also demanding, for performer and listener alike. They're not kidding when they call him the hardest working man in show business. But the rewards unfold and unfold and unfold. Here is the essential core, as good a starting point as any. As necessary as anything in his canon. Worth it at twice the price. Really, words fail.
