In a six-decade spanning career James Brown moved American urban music out of the chitlin circuit forever and established R&B and soul as mainstream fare for clubs, halls and eventually stadia. His influence on the development of deep groove and rap is as profound as his mastery of the call and response hit or the lengthy multi-part singles that kept him bubbling through the charts. He enjoyed sixteen number one Billboard smashes and walked into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame with his head held high. Rolling Stone magazine has named him the seventh most important of their greatest artists of all time. Some would demur that that is too low!

The esteemed producer Rick Rubin sums him up thus: “In one sense James Brown is like Johnny Cash. Johnny is considered one of the kings of country music, but there are a lot of people who like Johnny but don't like country music. It's the same with James Brown and R&B. His music is singular — the feel and tone of it. James Brown is his own genre. He was a great editor — as a songwriter, producer and bandleader. He kept things sparse. He knew that was important.... And the music always came from the groove, whereas for so many R&B and Motown artists at the time it was more about conventional songs. James Brown's songs are not conventional... they are ultimately vehicles for unique, even bizarre grooves.”

Originally released in 1968, this album features live performances by James Brown recorded in 1967. This expanded live set Includes a 19-minute version of "It's A Man's Man's Man's World".
