Entertainment Reviews:

Record Collector (magazine) - p.86
4 stars out of 5 -- "It's Brown's maverick nature, combines with his foibles and idiosyncrasies, which makes his career so fascinating. This fourth instalment is every bit as enthralling as the previous three volumes."

Audio Remasterer: Seth Foster.
The singles included on this collection represent the period when the Godfather of Soul was coming fully into his own. By 1966 he had definitively cast off all remnants of the '50s-style R&B that influenced him and cropped up in his early-'60s recordings. On such tunes as the immortal "Cold Sweat," "Get it Together," and "Ain't That a Groove," one can hear the sound of James Brown as we know and love it today coming into full flower. The percolating, polyrhythmic, on-the-one grooves, the modal song structures, and of course Brown's unfettered vocal exhortations (not to mention his fabulously funky organ work)--it's all here in one neat package, vital funk for the ages and for your ears (and feet).
