Liner Notes
EIGHTEEN GOLD RECORDS AGO THE LEGEND OF JAMES BROWN BEGAN. IT ALL STARTED WITH "PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE" RECORDED IN 1952 AND "SOUL MUSIC" TOOK ON A NEW EXCITEMENT. JAMES BROWN WAS LAUNCHED INTO STARDOM AND WAS DESTINED TO BECOME THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE "SOUL BROTHER". FEW SINGERS REACH THE COVETED PLATEAU OF A MILLION SELLING RECORD AND EVEN FEWER CAN RETURN THERE TWICE, YET EIGHTEEN TIMES JAMES BROWN HAS PROVEN HIS DYNAMIC SOULFUL RENDITION OF SONGS LIKE "I GO CRAZY", "PAPA'S GOT A BRAND NEW BAG", "YOU GOT THE POWER ", "GET IT TOGETHER" AND "COLD SWEAT." THE JAMES BROWN SHOW, FROM WHICH THIS ALBUM WAS RECORDED LIVE AT THE APOLLO THEATRE IN NEW YORK, IS LIVING PROOF OF THE UNFAILING LEADERSHIP AND DEDICATION OF JAMES BROWN IN THE PRESENTATION OF THE MOST EXCITING MUSIC SHOW IN THE WORLD. THE EXCITEMENT AND REALISM HAS BEEN CAPTURED AND PUT INTO THIS ALBUM. JAMES BROWN HAS PIONEERED IN THE FORMATION OF WHAT SOUL MUSIC IS TODAY. HE HAS SO INFLUENCED THE MUSIC WORLD THAT HIS STYLE IS OFTEN COPIED BY OTHER PERFORMERS BUT NEVER DUPLICATED, PERHAPS BECAUSE OF HIS METICULOUS PRODUCTION, THAT UNMISTAKABLE, DRIVING, PULSATING POWER THAT HE SO SKILLFULLY WEAVES INTO EACH SONG. THE JAMES BROWN LEGEND IS GROWING WITH SUCH FURY TODAY THAT OFTEN HIS CONCERTS ARE "SOLD OUT" DAYS IN ADVANCE OF HIS APPEARANCE AND IN SOME CITIES A MATINEE AND TWO EVENING SHOWS ARE NECESSARY TO ACCOMMODATE THE HUGE CROWDS. THE SHOW IS NEVER THE SAME TWICE BUT IT IS ALWAYS THE MOST DYNAMIC MUSICAL SHOW ON EARTH, WITH JAMES BROWN MAKING THREE APPEAR-ANCES IN EACH SHOW AND EACH PERFORMANCE EXCITES THE AUDIENCE TO SUCH A PITCH THAT SOMETIMES THE MUSIC CAN HARDLY BE HEARD ABOVE THE CHEERING, APPLAUDING FANS. THE MERE ENTRANCE OF JAMES BROWN ONTO THE STAGE OFTEN BRINGS HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE FROM THEIR SEATS PRESSING FOR A CLOSER LOOK, UN-ABLE TO HOLD BACK THEIR EMOTIONS OF BEING COMPLETELY INVOLVED IN THE TOTAL EXCITEMENT OF A HAPPENING AS FANTASTIC AND SOULFUL AS THE JAMES BROWN SHOW. NOT ONLY DOES HE LIVE UP TO THE TITLE OF SOUL BROTHER NUMBER ONE BUT ALSO TO THE TITLE OF ONE OF THE BEST DRESSED MEN IN THE WORLD. HE DESIGNS HIS OWN CLOTHES FOR BOTH STAGE AND STREET WEAR, AND IS OFTEN RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING NEW TRENDS IN MEN'S WEAR. THIS JOB ALONE KEEPS FOUR DESIGNERS BUSY FROM NEW YORK, FLORIDA AND CALIFORNIA. IN ALL, A TOTAL OF OVER 60 PEOPLE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PRODUCTION OF THE JAMES BROWN SHOW, BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE JAMES BROWN � SOUL BROTHER ONE. . . . . . ROGER MCELYCZ
