HELL was released at an interesting juncture in Brown's career. This 1974 album came in the wake of the highly regarded PAYBACK, and the unusual decision was made to include re-recorded versions of seven previously released songs. The packaging of the album leads one to believe that this is Brown's big social statement about the plight of those living in American ghettoes. Only the title song seems to address these issues, however powerfully. That's not to say HELL isn't full of captivating cuts, though. From the unrelenting '70s funk of "Sayin' and Doin' It" to the Latin feel given to "Please, Please, Please" this recording is full of obscure treasures. A few of the tracks feature the JB's, but most include killer session players like Gordon Edwards and Jimmy Madison. Interesting trivial note: almost all the songs are inexplicably separated by the crash of a gong.
