The Singles Volume Two: 1960-1963
by James Brown
Released: Mar 2007
Label: Hip-O Select
In Vol. 2 of this essential series, we find our hero trying to capture his incredible live performances on wax and develop what would become known as funk. Brown didn't reach his goal here: Vol. 3's "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" features that moment. However, this collection includes plenty of high-energy rhythm and blues, including concert staples "Night Train" and "Mashed Potatoes U.S.A." He wails like a down-South Jackie Wilson on "I Don't Mind," turns the Isley Brothers' "Shout" into "Shout and Shimmy" and channels his inner Little Richard on "Love Don't Love Nobody."
