The Godfather of Soul is a fitting name, he has influenced so many, most notably Prince and Bootsy Collins.

James Brown taught every other artist how to perform. Nobody else put as much into it as the hardest working man in show-business.

LIVE AT THE APOLLO just may be the finest capture of a live performance ever. Listen to it and you'll feel as if you're there.
