Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
After the legendary Live at the Apollo and the even better Love Power Peace: Live at the Olympia, James Brown could be forgiven if this 1970 live set disappoints. But this is Brother James, so skip the forgiveness. Sex Machine is the bomb, capturing a thrilling moment in Brown's funky revolution. The disc features 12 hot and sweaty, and sometimes slinky, live cuts recorded with the James Brown Band in 1969, plus three more studio jams (including a 10-minute title track) with his next band, the great JB's. "Can I get into it?" James shouts at the top. Oh man--does he even have to ask? --David Cantwell

CD Reviews

The real thing - totally hot, genuine and funky
Charles Cecil O'meara | guilford, CT United States | 12/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Maybe the reason i don't like hip-hop is because i heard this album (and many others) by the master of minimalism and soul. James Brown released a lot of hot albums, but this one oozes sweat and energy. That simple. Listening to this album is like standing at a primordial swamp at the dawn of creation: a TON of contemporary black music is directly indebted to and descended from J.B and especially this album. Just *$^@+++$&&!&!~ing buy it already"
Ah, James....

"James, you let me down, brother...I thought out of all the people in the world, you were gonna be the one that lived forever. I thought you were immortal, super-bad, and impervious to death. That's okay, man, I forgive you. You will continue to live on in my heart, my mind, and of course, in my soul with your great recordings. I know that wherever you are now, James, you are makin' it funky.

Thank You for blessing my life...

"James Brown-Sex Machine [Live] *****

Okay first off, this is by far the best live album the Godfather ever released. Yes, even better than Live At The Apollo(1963), in fact it is much better. That was never one of my favorite live albums, I never understood what the big hype about it was, sure the story is cool but that doesn't make the performance any better. Now this, this is a live album.

All the intensity of Brown's legendary performances is captured. The vocals are audible 100% of the time, the band sounds just plain amazing here. That is the one thing the Apollo album had though was one amazing band, they never sounded so good as they did on that album, but they sound just fine here. Songs like 'I Got That Feelin' and 'Get Up I Feel Like A Sex Machine' come to life like you have never heard them before. Simply amazing performances. 'Give It Up Or Turn It Loose' is powerful. 'Its A Mans World' and the classic 'Please, Please, Please' are the best I have ever heard, and in fact this is the only version of 'Please' I can bare. But what seems to be the best on the album is the closer. 'Mother Popcorn' captured here is easily the best version of the song. Long been my favorite Brown song I have always felt that it would always make the best song to end a concert, and this why.

Sex Machine is a fantastic live, one of the very best of all time. The proof is in the pudding so take a bite."
