Editorial Reviews

Two scintillating performances by the Godfather of Soul, packed on to one, 127-minute DVD! The first takes place in 1980 at Manhattan's Studio 54, right at the peak of that club's notoriety, while the second captures him on his own turf at Atlanta's Chastain Park Stadium, doing classics like Please, Please, Please; It's a Man's, Man's, Man's World and Papa's Got a Brand-New Bag as well as some more recent numbers. A big booklet accompanies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Historic shows from the '80s December 31, 2008
By Phil S.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The earlier show celebrates Studio 54 (on its' closing night) and the mid-'80s showcelebrates 40 years of James Brown in Show Business.
The show from New York, at this point for longtime fans and JB is the one *on* the one! An absolutely terrific performance with the new JB, if you will - riding high on the Yuppie-Club Circuit, with a new, scaled-down, "Disco Soul" approach, with a softer-edge on the vocals: much less emphasis on screams, moans, and other nonverbalisms. He's trimmed down and funky as he wanna be.
Opening number, "It's Too Funky In Here" and finale intro. version both cut on CD. Plus, this Reviewer hears a lot of over dubbed audience sounds, not well mixed. WE might wonder if some of that "camoulflage" was needed to cover some horn dissonance. Yes, at one point, JB (apparently detecting some stale horns, asks for five minutes to straighten things out).
Audio-Video quality (on the very uncommon video) below standard but no "pop" is lost.

The Chastain Park show has been recycled nearly into oblivion but the show is good > typical of the period - no surprises - but even at age 52 the superstar's energy level is amazing. It includes one of the greatest "Georgia On My Mind"(s) you'll ever hear. I've always said that Brown's arrangement is just as good as Ray Charles'; it's a shame it got lost on a B-side.
Disappointing that "Super Bad", and "Disco Rap" are not included.

It can be said that the '80 show is more guitar-driven, whereas the '85 mix showcases the horns (meaning that St. Clair Pinckney and Maceo "Father Popcorn" Parker have arrived early for the party).

For the brand new fans, you may want to choose something like James Brown, Live In Dallas 1968 or just go for the reasonably priced, DVD set of live in New York and Boston, the 1968 TV Specials, to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love James Brown October 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love James Brown so much!!! I was disappointed that the picture quality of this DVD was not great, and James Brown did not dance enough for me. I love watching him do the splits.
