This two-disc set brings together all the singles James Brown released in 1969 and '70, one of the Godfather's most prolific and artistically fruitful periods. By '69 Brown was deep into hard funk, and had mastered the tight-knit, polyrhythmic arrangements that characterize his best tracks. It's not only that the set contains "Mother Popcorn," "Funky President," and "Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothin'," it's that Brown and his infallible band play with ferocious energy and consummate skill on even the loosest jam tracks. Mr. Dynamite's yelps and screeches still have the power to rearrange one's molecules. The inclusion of discarded singles from the era and hard-to-find promotional mixes make this a must for collectors as well.
