Make It Funky: The Big Payback (1971-1975)

"Stoned to the Bone" James Brown started his funk strong in the '50s, scaled it to heights thentofore unknown in the '60s, and continued strong into the '70s. The latter is nicely documented on this baker's two dozen package. The jams are not only longer, they're more nuanced and textured, and the rhythms never get out of your body or head. Transfixing and transcendent. Funkerrific. Some of the greatest music of all time. The privilege is entirely yours.
