This is a solidly, downright nasty-groovin' compilation of tracks associated with James Brown. the JB's, the Flames, Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley and Sweet Charles are here, laying out A- and B-sides of Brown's tunes, as well as solo issues recorded during the '70s. Anyone who could seriously consider this as filler material has no imagination, and no backbone for slipping and sliding. The music here is 100-percent killer and no filler. Brown wrote some of the cuts here, but even those he had nothing to do with, such as tracks by the Flames, or even the Curtis Mayfield-penned "Future Shock" recorded by Parker, have a firm funk footprint all over them, trademarked by Brown. Issued on CD by Japan's excellent P-Vine label, this one is well worth seeking out. Break a sweat, y'all. ~ Thom Jurek
