Editorial Reviews

A lotta funk power, a lotta soul power-and some gems you won't find on other collections. Joining I Got You; Papa's Got a Brand New Bag; Get on the Good Foot; Cold Sweat; Soul Power; Prisoner of Love , and It's a Man's Man's Man's World are his early ballad Try Me ; his often overlooked 1968 hit America Is My Home , and more.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Want My Funk Uncut... June 10, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This collection of James Brown's best "pop" moments is too limited in its scope, and too limiting in its depth. Yes, it has the essential (and played out) trio of pop classics, "I Got You," "It's A Man's World," and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag." And a plus is the inclusion of the long version of "Cold Sweat," which many rate as THE most essential James Brown cut. But James Brown, the REAL James Brown, is not about being restricted to 3 minutes. Since less than 40 of the cd's 75 minutes are used, Universal could have done us all a favor by a) using the same songs in their long versions, or B) adding more of James' essential cuts, like "Please, Please, Please," "Out Of Sight," "I Got The Feelin'," or, yes, "Say It Loud, I'm Black And I'm Proud" (which was a top 10 pop hit, not that it's ever played on oldies OR old school stations). What's the sense of finally releasing "America Is My Home" on this set, and limiting it to part 1? This is one of the rarest of James Brown cuts ("World" is the other), and with all the extra room on the cd, it should have been issued in full length. Come to think of it, "World" was top 10 R&B. It could have been here, too. This set is not only a poor value, it is exceeded by every other James Brown collection out there. If you are a James Brown novice and think 20 Greatest Hits might be going a bit deep for you, pick up "In The Jungle Groove." In just 8 cuts (9 if you count the bonus beats), you'll have an introduction that should leave you salivating. All in all, even with the inclusion of "America Is My Home," this is a pretty lame excuse for a James Brown retrospective. I want my funk uncut!

Get 20 Greatest Hits or 40th Anniversary Collection instead. This one is not worth your time or money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great record with some of his best music. December 23, 2013
By azpics
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought it for "its a man's world" and the rest was a bonus.

When I want to feel "good" this does the trick.

2.0 out of 5 stars You can do SOOOO much better... November 21, 2010
Format:Audio CD
...than this mediocre '20th Century Masters' entry. James Brown is legend. When he died on Christmas Day in 2006, it was like a part of my childhood died. Brown had this amazing range, and without him, R&B, funk, and soul music (as well as some forms of jazz) would not have evolved. He truly pushed the envelope, and that is why this entry is so disappointing.

Sure, 'I Got You (I Feel Good)' and 'This is a Man's Man's Man's World' are here, but why stop in the '60s? Why not move into some of his '50s and '70s sides? And, why was this necessary (except as a cash cow)? '20 Greatest Hits' has been out for years (since the early '90s), and 'The CD of JB' is also available for the fan that wants to dive in beyond the hits, as well as 'Greatest Hits of the Fourth Decade,' which covers his Scotti Bros. years of the '80s and early '90s.

Buy all of those instead. Please, not this. This is nothing but a cash cow, and it shows. It's so lackluster. There's no way JB approved of this. Buy yourself a real James Brown compilation and get up offa that thing! Just not this.

NOT RECOMMENDED. 2 stars is ***VERY*** generous.
