20 All Time Greatest Hits, by the late “Godfather of Soul” James Brown, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.
Although he has been dead for a few years now, the presence and soul of James Brown still permeates and penetrates in the public fabric. A master class showman, who had fever pitch passion for everything he did in his musical crafts, which included R&B and supernova hot funk which literally poured sweat and groove from the speakers, the level James Brown ran on kicked everyone’s ass, shook it as well on dance floors globally, and dazzled just about everyone else. The music, style, and attitude of what James Brown did to American music remains an absolute standard and zenith in many ways, his concoction of electrophonic tonic was a drink that went down smooth and bubbled over with moneymakers shakin’ all over town.
This greatest hits collection grabs 20 memorable slices of the Brown cachet and every one of them remains a sonic nugget: the sly horns and quiet thunder funk of “I Feel Good,” the out and out of the same thing with “Sex Machine,” “Mother Popcorn,” and “Make it Funky,” with the constant, consistent bassline driving smoothly across the musical terrain like a landspeeder, “Papa Don’t Take No Mess,” the revengeful and opus “The Big Payback,” and the aching and tender, yet still with the Brown panache and infectious bravado “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” and “Try Me,” this is essential American music which spans tastes all across the universe and beyond.
