CD Reviews

Essential
W. Todd Dominey | Decatur, GA United States | 12/14/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This disc is one of the many odds and ends that floats around Brown's mammoth CD catalog. For most core listeners the "StarTime" box set is probably enough, but for true fans (and old school rap and hip hop freaks) this CD is the mutherload of beats and funky grooves. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, can compare to the instrumental jam "JB's Monorail," a psychedelic funk jam that's out of this world. Lyn Collins is superb throughout. James pops in and out with yelps of encouragement, but for the most part it's Fred Wesley, Maceo and Collins laying down some serious groove."
6 stars of funk ....... at LEAST
Magic Mike | Metro Atlanta, USA | 03/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is beyond describable, if you're a TRUE old school, funk fan that can appreciate the down home soul of James Brown's genius (and the talent of the JBs). My favorites slower funk grooves are "Same Beat" (smooth and awesome) and "Damn Right, I Am Somebody" (the bassline is unbeatable, it sounds great playing through speakers with an acoustic suspension cabinet) - favorite fast track is "If You Don't Get it the First Time..." (a hip, head-bobbing track that just makes you want to get up and jam). This CD deserves 6 stars but you can only give it 5. Only thing I would change is to omit the Lyn Collins tracks - I'm just not a fan of her voice - and add in Bobby Byrds' two biggest hits "Hot Pants - I'm Coming" and "I Know You Got Soul", and maybe "Doin' it To Death" (Funky Good Time). Then it would be a ten star album for sure!"
This is da BOMB!

"If you can't get down and get down to it with this CD, you can't get down. JB is as superb a producer as a singer. These tracks--esp. "Think (About It)"--got it goin' on like a chicken bone!Lyn Collins puts all these modern so-called divas to shame, shame, shame. This girl knows her thang.And JB is the ultimate Greek chorus--you can hear him in the background in nearly every track, pushing it right along. If this one don't groove ya', you just don't have it in ya'."
