Star Time by James Brown
Released: May 1991
Label: Polydor
James Brown's vast catalog could never be reduced to a handful of albums. He was a master of the single, whether it meant a three-minute soul masher like "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" or a 7-minute funk workout like "Super Bad" that took up both sides of the 45. Though its 74 tracks may seem excessive, Star Time is the most concise view of his oeuvre to date, moving from "Please Please Please" and "I Got You" to "The Payback" and "Unity." Some JB comps are too massive, while others omit key moments. This classic box set strikes the right balance in anatomizing a legend.
