Mojo- James Brown’s Funky Summer

We have a number of classic JB recordings, some of which were released under James Brown's own name, some of which featured artists that he championed or has worked with over the years. Also included in this collection are a couple of tracks by acts that influenced the great man himself, namely Roy Brown and The 5 Royales ...." The other tracks are: Funky Women by Maceo And All The King's Men; If You Don't Give Me What I Want (I Gonna Get It Some Other Place) by Vicki Anderson (according to Nrown, the best female vocalist he ever had in his renowened Revue); You Can't Love Me If You Don't Respect Me by Lyn Collins (the uncharted flip of her 1974 hit Rock Me Again & Again & Again & Again & Again & Again); Between Two Sheets by Fred Wesley & The Horny Horns; What So Never The Dance by Bootsy Collins; I Know You Got Soul by Bobby Byrd (a # 30 R&B and # 117 Hot 100 "Bubble Under" in July 1971); What A Good Man He Is by Tammi Terrell; Please Please Please by The Soul Survivors; Cold Sweat by Albert King (which had been the uncharted B-side of his 1971 hit Can't You See What You're Doing To Me?); Love Don't Love Nobody by Roy Brown & His Mighty-Mighty Men (a # 2 R&B in the fall of 1950); Tell The Truth by The "5" Royales; and Antenna by Braille. The sound quality is excellent. A decent mix of funky stuff.
