Live At The Apollo Volume II [Deluxe Edition] (Bonus Tracks)
by James Brown
Released: Aug 1968
Label: Universal Motown Records Group
Just listening to the drum track on "Think" is reason enough to canonize this record. It's not the full-on statement of his first record at the Apollo five years prior, but it just shows how innovative and brilliant James Brown and his entourage were. Maybe twenty minutes of "It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World" is a bit much, but Bobby Byrd's "Sweet Soul Music" is on fire.
