James Brown inverted rock ‘n’ roll (only the smart kids will understand this one) and sang soul to it, and funk was born. Funny enough the bad recording only adds to the funk, Sly even started doing that on purpose on There’s a Riot Goin’ On.

Please, please, please forget the hype of its reputation: this LP shines. James & the Flames' performance maintains today all that's exemplified by the audience response in '63. He got the power.

Mezz'ora di concerto posto così com'è suonato, cioè strepitosamente. Sarà una musica oggi datata ma la sua voce ti inchioda al muro oggi come allora. DINAMITE.

All time classic. Yes it's great. Obviously, it's James brown live. But it's not the best live album ever. In fact I'd rate it his 4th best live cd. So please please please (ahem) consider checking out his other classic live CDs like love peace power in Paris and the Dallas one. For me two of the best of any genre from when he was at his funk peak.

Not as good as I expected it to be. It's okay though, I just felt a little disappointed after hearing it, I expected a bit more considering it's reputation.

Not the best recording but the man's passion shines through.

Cocaine anyone? I wish this was recorded better. I mean it's still great, but it would just be that much better. Great crowd interaction though.

From swhaze
Let me just start out by saying this isn't the greatest live album. It is influential, and proved that people would pay money to own a live recording, which is the main reason why it's often considored the best. However, there are many subsequent live recordings that are much better than this.
