Black Caesar by James Brown
Released: Feb 1973
Label: Universal Motown Records Group
The pride of Georgia applied his scrappy funk to the urban squalor of classic gangsta flick Black Caesar and, for the most part, came up with winners. James Brown delivered some of his top grooves on "The Boss" and "Make It Good to Yourself," and the epic "Down and Out in New York City" captured the titular character's impoverished origins and hustler's drive. Meanwhile, backing band the JB's stretched out on excellent instrumentals like "Blind Man Can See It." Even weaker cuts like "Sportin' Life" and Lyn Collins' "Mama Feelgood" burst with ideas from a legend at the top of his game.
