While this is not ideal picture quality, (but really not that bad!) it has Fantastic performances of many of BJHs most important songs. It also has an extra track (Rock & roll lady) not credited on the cover. And by the way, the audio is spot on.
One reason this is a 'must have' is that it has a live version of 'Play to the World' included - one of the great songs of all time. However, the entire 50 minutes is fab - and a record of BJHs first 25 years, recorded back in 1992. Mockingbird, Medicine Man, Play to the world, Life is for Living, Rock and roll lady, Poor Man's Moody Blues, Stand Up and Hymn…. how can you go wrong?

' This is one of the great albums of all time, and is by far the most coherent, interesting and powerful album that James Brown was involved with. With Maceo Parker back on board to work with Fred Wesley and the gang at the height of their creativity, the album comes together as a coherent whole, exploring a number of funk and jazz themes. The album gives extended solo time to the horn players, while the guitar and bass players set up rock-solid foundations. The drumming and percussion are all superb. Even the mellow numbers on this album don't succumb to dullness, kept crisp by the sharpness of the band. The longer songs also challenge funk conventions, particularly since most of them don't even have vocals. This is a crucial album that every funk fan should have.' [email protected]
