James Brown has been an R&B giant ever since "Please Please Please" (1956) first propelled him to the top of the R&B charts. This set caught him at the peak of his early years, at the quintessential showplace for African-American musicians: The Apollo Theater in Harlem. This set is, for many, one of the greatest concert recordings of a pop performer. Ultradiscs are mastered from the original master tapes using Mobile Fidelity's proprietary mastering technique, then plated with 24 karat gold and housed in a stress-resistant lift-lock jewel box. Editorial reviews Ranked #30 in NME's list of the `Greatest Albums Of All Time.' NME (10/02/1993) 4 Stars - Excellent - ...remains Brown's finest recorded document... Q 5 Stars - Excellent - ...without James Brown's brilliant insight into how to foreground rhythms, music from funk to reggae to rap to Afro-pop would be totally different, if it existed at all... Down Beat (09/01/1990) 5 stars out of 5 - A serious candidate for greatest live album ever, this was the first and best document of Mr. Dynamite's numerous appearances at the Harlem hotspot. Q
