Product details

THE GODFATHER OF SOUL

2 ORIGINAL LPs ON 1 CD
 
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. He was also arguably the most influential African-American artist in the history of popular music. This quintessential collector’s edition includes James Brown & The Famous Flames’ seminal albums for the King label; consisting of their debut LP Please, Please, Please (1959) and their third album Think! (1960). These two masterpieces helped define the primal nature of soul. They offer a solid introduction into this man's special brand of musical feeling, his own passionate style, intense delivery and R&B innovation. In addition, we have included 3 bonus tracks, consisting of hard to find sides from the same period. The foot-tapping rhythms, spine-tingling stylings and sentimental mood renderings so typical of his early performances can all be heard here. This is the material upon which James Brown’s kingdom was built.

“Think! is one of his best original albums, in part because it has the highest hit quotient (“Think”, “I’ll Go Crazy”, “Good Good Lovin’” etc.) but mostly because it offers Brown’s most distinctive work to that point.” - Rolling Stone magazine
“He knew what was important. And he had the best players, the funkiest of all bands.” - Rick Rubin
