Product details

2 LPs ON 1 CD + 5 BONUS TRACKS

Through the gospel-impassioned fury of his vocals and the complex polyrhythms of his beats, James Brown became the single most important figure in the transformation of rhythm & blues into SOUL music. This quintessential release includes James Brown & His Famous Flames' two seminal studio albums which have been long out of print: Tour the U.S.A. (1962), despite the title, this is not a live record (although the set almost has the same feeling as some of the James Brown Show LPs), and the hard to find Night Train (1961).

The latter LP features Brown and his band performing on half of the tracks, plus some instrumental pieces by other artists on the King label. Both albums helped define the primal nature of soul and offer a solid introduction into this man's special brand of musical feeling, his own passionate style, intense delivery and R&B innovation. This remastered collector's edition also contains 5 bonus tracks from the same period, which weren't included on either album.
