"James Brown, like Johnny Cash, has more greatest hits albums than actual studio albums. So when you can find an actual studio album, you should get it. And this is an actual studio album. And it happens to be filled with some of his greatest hits, some of which are actually different versions than you may have heard already. One of the tracks, Funky Side of Town, isn't a greatest hit, but should be. It may be one of the first "shout out" songs ever recorded even. JB even gives a shout out to Johnny Cash ("Nashville Johnny Cashville"). If you love James Brown and old school JB's, then get this."

"With a Monster like the title cut to contend with, it made sense to capitalize on it with a major release, and here it was and is. Although the tired cliche "It would have made a GREAT single album" does apply, there are four exceptionally fine ballads which sound even greater 28 years later: "Your Love Was Good For Me" (also a 1968 Marva Whitney recording which should have been a smash single); "Nothing Beats A Try But A Fail" and two Sammy Lowe-related ballad recuts "Lost Someone" and "I Know It's True" (aka "I Found Someone"),the latter originally left off the domestic issue. The remainder are very well-produced and are still required listening."

"James Brown isn't really considered in terms of the studio albums he recorded; as another reviewer pointed out, the average CD with his name on it is a collection of hit singles, rather than an organized, preconceived single album.
I can't imagine why this is the case, since every studio album I've heard from him is excellent, especially There It Is and Hell, but most of all this one, 'Get on the Good Foot', my personal favorite, which features a twelve minute version of his signature ballad, 'Please, Please, Please', involving Mr Brown narrating part of his life story and singing snippets of songs from his own favorite artists.
'The Whole World Needs Liberation' and 'The Funky Side of Town' are other highlights."
