James Brown was one of the figures most responsible for turning R&B into soul and he was, most would agree, the figure most responsible for turning soul music into the funk of the late '60s and early '70s. 'Soul Brother Number One', 'the Godfather of Soul', 'the Hardest Working Man in Show Business', 'Mr. Dynamite' - those are mighty titles, but no one can question that James Brown earned them more than any other performer. Other singers were more popular, others were equally skilled, but few other African-American musicians were so influential over the course of popular music. And no other musician, pop or otherwise, put on a more exciting, exhilarating stage show. Brown's performances were marvels of athletic stamina and split-second timing. Through the gospel-impassioned fury of his vocals and the complex polyrhythms of his beats, Brown was a crucial midwife in not just one, but two revolutions in black American music. In The Many Faces of James Brown we will explore a different side of him, by digging into his lesser known works, his collaborations, live performances and his unparalleled legacy. With fantastic artwork and remastered sound, The Many Faces of James Brown is an essential addition to the Many Faces collection, and remember that this collection is not available on streaming platforms!
