Product Description

I Got the Feelin': James Brown in the '60s is the definitive look at JB's on-stage prowess, including an acclaimed documentary, two previously unreleased concerts, and more. With full-length versions of many classics, including"I Feel Good," "Out Of Sight," "Cold Sweat," "Try Me," "I Got The Feelin'," "It's A Man's Man's Man's World," "Bewildered," and "Please, Please, Please," I Got the Feelin': James Brown in the '60s is an essential part of any music lover's collection.

Features the director's cut of the acclaimed VH1 film The Night James Brown Saved Boston, which tells the story of a 1968 concert that not only averted riots in Boston in the aftermath of MLK's assassination, but also set James Brown on a revolutionary new path. Includes additional interviews with members of James Brown's band, friends and colleagues, plus a panel discussion from the film's premiere in Boston.

Features the historic 1968 Boston Garden concert as originally broadcast by WGBH. Contains additional audio from the radio simulcast of the concert.

Features Man to Man: James Brown Live at The Apollo Theater 1968, a TV special taped the week before the Boston show and unseen for 40 years! Plus bonus performances from 1967 and 1968 shows at L'Olympia in Paris, AND the legendary version of "Out of Sight" from The T.A.M.I. Show (1964).

May I respectfully say, "James Brown Live At Chastain Park", take a rest.
Here we have two transcendant excursions into Soul Music history, 1968 concerts made within about two weeks of each other, one at the Apollo, the other at the Boston Gardens, and whether or not the proverbial floodgates will be opened, at this point it doesn't matter. The concerts are amazing: Soul Brother Number One at the very top of his form, a singing, dancing, band-directing, audience mesmerizing phenomenon. His renditions of the ballads "Try Me", "Bewildered", the gospel-jazz expositions like "Get It Together", "There Was A Time", and "Cold Sweat" are of course the best out now on DVD.
The earlier TV Special called "Man To Man" appears to be the final TV cut, no extras. The video quality is not what it should be for an artist of his stature, though let's remember that it was done on videotape by Metromedia in New York, not by a network. The viewer should not be upset with some of the trendy kaleidoscope effects, and some hard edits.
We have the much-discussed, much-requested concert from Boston, telecast one day after the assassination of Doctor Martin Luther King. The atmosphere is naturally tense, involves Mayor Kevin White, who delivers a powerful speech.
As ticketholders were offered a refund so as to stay at home and watch the taping, the audience is comparatively sparse. Yet the consummate showman is still able to elicit audible screams on his passionate, intense, sometimes whispered, sometimes belted "It's Man's, Man's, Man's World". He's also able to excite those patrons...the initiated already know the story of those who rushed the stage on a night that all were asked to remember Doctor King and enjoy James Brown in Peace. It was on outpouring of Love but the camera lens can distort.

Que pasa people que pasa HIT ME! JB fans rejoice! At long last here are (authroized) DVDs of The Godfather at the peak of his powers!

DVD#1 is "The Night JB Saved Boston." The story of how on April 5, 1968 (the night after Dr. Martin Luther King's murder), the Godfather gave a concert in Boston and literally stopped a riot. Lots of good interviews along with some scenes of the famous concert. Similar to Bob Marley bringing warring factions in Jamaica onstage a decade later to declare peace (See Marley's "Time Will Tell" DVD).

DVD#2 is the concert itself. Having seen an, ahem.."unauthorized" DVD of this, I can tell you this is not the entire concert as advertised. Missing are solo performances by JB's stable including Marva Whitney, Bobby Byrd (and a duet with JB and BB), and Maceo Parker MCing and doing standup comedy. This is some really good stuff and we get to see the Godfather do all the dances he narrates in his classic "There Was a Time". We also see where JB stops the show and takes control to stop the riot.

DVD#2 is a rare color TV special from March 1968 with the Godfather at the Apollo. These are pretty much the same songs as the Boston show with a few exceptions, but we get better views of JB relating to his audience and we see him walking in the ghettoes of Harlem, Watts, and Southwest DC talking and relating with his followers along with some of his commentary. "My goal is to make the Black Americna into an American." (Important to consider that this was shortly before he stopped the riots and recorded "Say It Loud I'm Black and I'm Proud").

However, we only get a few minutes of another legendary JB sixties moment.

I just received my set today, and so far watched Disc Three in it's entirety. I can't add much more than the other three reviewers (so far) have stated, except that Disc One is timed at 175+ minutes! I watched the special "The Night James Brown Saved Boston" when it was originally broadcast on VH-1 (and there are FEW performers that I would tolerate 15 minutes worth of commercials per hour for...), so we are getting about 85 additional minutes of content. While watching the original broadcast I felt that bits & pieces seemed missing, some transitions were too abrupt and some aspects rushed, so this version should fill in the blanks. The only other feature that no one else has mentioned, and to me the most exciting and promising, is that THE FOOTAGE OF "OUT OF SIGHT" FROM "THE T.A.M.I. SHOW" IS IN THE ORIGINAL WIDESCREEN ASPECT RATIO ENHANCED FOR 16:9 TV's!!! When the clip came on, and I noticed that the picture seemed "squeezed" on my widescreen monitor, my fingers began to shake as I reached for the P.Size button on my remote, but VIOLA!, THE T.A.M.I. SHOW and James Brown in glorious widescreen (and the picture quality was pretty darn good too). Maybe I WILL live to see this semi-rare, but unavailable legally in it's original form HISTORIC concert in my lifetime...

This boxset is a long awaited collection of footage documenting one of the most important decades of Brown's career.

David Leaf's documentary, The Night James Brown Saved Boston, is a stunning account of how Brown halted riots in the wake of Martin Luther King's murder. Featuring commentary from band members, managers, backing singers, city officials and many more, Leaf lets those involved tell the story from each of their perspectives and in doing so presents an even handed and holistic picture of Brown at that time.

The documentary special features are superb, featuring almost 90 minutes' worth of extra interview footage with commentators such as Dr Cornell West and Reverend Al Sharpton. It is all supremely interesting and highly watchable.

The second disc, featuring the concert in full, shows Brown's powerhouse performance in pristine condition for the first time in four decades. brown is on fire and his band are impeccable. His performance of There Was A Time is absolutely stunning, as is the extended medley of Man's World/Lost Someone/Bewildered.

The third disc may seem a little superfluous to some. The setlist is nearly identical to that of the Boston Garden concert. Brown completists will value the third disc but casual fans may find it a little repetitive. It does, however, contain three stunning bonus performances.

Overall, this set is fantastic value for money and a must have for any soul or funk music fan.
