James Brown - Live At The Apollo

In 1962 (one year before the release of the album), James Brown was known, but not owwwww (well known)! Frustrated at his inability to break through, the ever savvy J.B. asked his label to record one of his acclaimed live shows and release it as an album. When the label refused, Brown bankrolled the recording himself.

"Are you ready for star time?" the emcee asks the Apollo crowd on the night of October 24, and for the next 40 minutes Brown puts on a flawless show of dynamism that lost nothing in the transfer to vinyl. Only a few thousand copies of the original were pressed, but demand became so great (it ultimately sold well over a million) that DJs played the album in its entirety, and the legend of the hardest working man in showbiz was born...

There are too many hits in this album. "I'll Go Crazy", "Try Me", "Think", "Please Please Please", "I Don't Mind", "Night Train" and more. If you have seen the Live of James Brown, that's OK, i don't need to say more. But in case you haven't, just buy the album!
