Entertainment Weekly - 7/21/95, p.64"...even at his most run-of-the-mill, he's a miracle of modern music. After all, how many 67-year-old men do you know who can work a Harlem crowd into a frenzy singing songs like 'Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine'?" - Rating: B+

Is there no stopping James Brown? 33 years after the recording of his legendary 1962 performance at the Apollo Theater, Mr. Dynamite returned to tear the roof off the same venue with this incendiary 19-track set. Backed by the Soul Generals, a crack group of musicians that lends horns, voices, and full-throttle instrumental backing, Brown sets out to rock the joint and take no prisoners.
The track list reads like the soul and R&B hit parade of the last 40 years. Brown revisits "Try Me," "Please, Please, Please," "(I Got You) I Feel Good," "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag," "Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine," "Get Up Offa That Thing," and other signature numbers of unspeakable, stupendous funkability. Were this a case of Brown revisiting old glories and resting on his laurels, it would be easy to dismiss. But the Godfather churns it out harder than ever, making this performance as riveting as the 1962 set. If this show is any indication, the hardest working man in show business shows no intention of retiring.
