James Brown
Get On The Good Foot

Get On The Good Foot by James Brown was originally released in 1972. As you might expect, it’s funky as hell. The title track was released as a single, split into two parts for some reason, and has been sampled numerous times. If you think you haven’t heard it before, you probably have.

James Brown
Say It Live And Loud: Live In Dallas 08.26.68 (Expanded Edition)

Say It Live And Loud: Live In Dallas 08.26.68 sees James Brown and his band in powerful form. It was recorded with the recent assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy fresh in people’s minds. His protest anthem Say It Loud, I’m Black And I’m Proud had just been released, and to rightly hammer his point home, he performs it twice. Classic stuff! Double LP on Polydor.

James Brown
Slaughters Big Rip-Off (Original Soundtrack)

The amount of huge artists from the funk/soul continuum who’ve soundtracked blaxploitation movies is just crazy. Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes and Marvin Gaye are just three of the all-time greats that produced scores for films of the genre during its early-’70s heyday. Even the Godfather himself Mr. James Brown got in on the act, teaming up with on-off compositional partner Fred Wesley to produce a typically high-wire set of tunes for 1973 flick Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off. Out of print for a minute, Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off (OST) has now been reissued by Polydor.

James Brown
Motherlode

Motherlode by James Brown is a  compilation that was originally released in 1988. It was re-released in 2003 as an expanded edition. This is the first vinyl version of that expanded version - ya get me? It concentrates on The Godfather Of Soul’s funk output from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. For good measure there’s a few remixes and live performances thrown in too. Double 180g vinyl LP on Polydor.

James Brown
Black Caesar (Original Soundtrack)

Black Caesar was the James Brown’s first stab at a film soundtrack. A 1973 blaxploitation gangster film and funk sound like a pretty cool match. The soundtrack also includes tracks by The J.B.’s and Lyn Collins. Songs from this soundtrack have been sampled by Ice-T, Nas and Trick Daddy. 180g vinyl reissue on Polydor.

The Grodeck Whipperjenny
The Grodeck Whipperjenny

The Grodeck WhipperJenny is a perfectly executed psychedelic funk rock masterpiece. It is the brainchild of James Brown’s bandleader David Matthews, who at the time, was relatively unknown. It was originally released in 1970 on James Brown’s People label. This is it’s first reissue since those heady days.

James Brown
It’s a Mans Mans Mans World

There’s nothing more I can say about Mr James Brown. Simply a true legend, Brown’s influence knows no borders, with his distinctive vocal style and soulful funk forming the sound of bands all over Africa, South America, Europe and beyond. It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World was Brown’s 16th studio album from 1966 and is now reissued.   

James Brown
Love Power Peace

• First release of 3-LP set as envisioned by James Brown • Includes deluxe jacket with rare photos and liner notes by Alan Leeds • Mastered from Brown’s 1971 mixdown reels, unused until now! James Brown’s magnum opus! Love Power Peace is the sound of the Godfather and his youngblood J.B.’s (including Bootsy and Catfish Collins) electrifying a crazed Parisian audience on March 8, 1971. Sequenced and mixed by Brown himself for a planned triple album, the set was shelved when key band members departed before it could be issued. Here, for the first time, are the sides as intended, exactly as delivered by James Brown Productions to his label in 1971—a 3-LP set with each disc mastered from the original mixdown reels, and each with a unique name, Love, Power and Peace! Brown and band rip through recent singles like “Sex Machine,” “Super Bad,” “Give It Up or Turnit a Loose” and “Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved” with a metronomic precision laid down by bassist Bootsy Collins and drummer Jabo Starks. Interspersed with just the right amount of slow numbers like “Georgia on My Mind,” and including tracks from the show’s supporting acts that were not included on the 1992 CD (which was a remixed, incomplete show), this document of the funk revolution features rare photos and liner notes by tour director Alan Leeds. The way to jump on board for a trip through James’ world at the height of his career!
