In the Great Encyclopedia of Soul, one should find James Brown cross-referenced with the Apollo Theater, since that legendary Harlem venue was the source of much of Brown's finest recorded material. Brown's famed LIVE AT THE APOLLO recordings are only part of the story. REVOLUTION OF THE MIND was culled from several nights of shows at the Apollo in 1971. The version of the JB's Brown was working with at the time had only been together for a short time, and their playing is infused with a sense of urgency and discovery.
Brown's social consciousness was in high gear at the time, as evidenced by the positive political message of "Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved." Classic Brown funkfests like "Sex Machine" and "Hot Pants" are churned out with unprecedented power and energy, the band running on all cylinders. Brown's unstoppable spirit is reflected in his enthusiastic, shouted intros to the songs as much as in the music itself.
