Editorial Reviews

Smack in the middle of James Brown's extensive catalog is a nearly forgotten release from May 1967: Live At The Garden. Like so many other live records of the era, it was overshadowed by Brown's blazing landmark album Live At The Apollo, then further eclipsed a year later by another Apollo LP. Adding to the obscurity is that, although intended to highlight Soul Brother No. 1's groundbreaking ascension to headlining status at New York's Madison Square Garden, the album was actually recorded over several performances at a nightclub in Cherry Hill, New Jersey - then doctored in the studio with fake applause and arena ambience, and edited in a fashion that truncated the show's best moments.

Hip-oSelect.com now tears the roof the sucker to reveal the original show from the famed Latin Casino, in the 2-CD set Live At The Garden: Expanded Edition, which also includes the U.S. CD debut of the original mono album. The collection's unreleased material, newly mixed from the original four-track master tapes - and sonically rescued from the venue's haphazard recording techniques - captures the raw excitement of James Brown Experience circa January '67, resulting in a soaring, searing revue of emerging funk and hit ballads. This Expanded Edition is also unique to all other James Brown live albums, as it features JB and band in a nightclub, not a theater or arena, with a delightfully casual pacing unheard anywhere else.

We've got two hours of straight-ahead JBE: the opening instrumental set, with the boss leading his incredible orchestra from behind the organ, including 10 minutes of "Night Train," and, for the first time, the full Star Time portion of the show - highlighted by an unedited version of "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag," tracks left off the LP including "It's A Man's Man's Man's World" and "Come Rain Or Come Shine," and some alternate versions of what was included on the album.

Also included is the full version - as well as a revealing instrumental warm-up - of the hit single "Let Yourself Go," recorded in an empty Casino after one of the shows that weekend. (It had been included on the LP with more of the fake applause.) Special mention must go to Alfred "Pee Wee" Ellis, holding it all together from the bandstand. One of the JB Orchestra's newest sax and keyboard players, he was made its leader literally the first night of the engagement.

Alan Leeds, a former Brown employee and Grammy® Award winner who's also the set's co-producer, lays out the whole story in a fascinating essay. The 24-page booklet also contains show memorabilia, rare photos, and a roster of the tour staff that winter. The Expanded Edition cover art is a slightly tweaked version of the original cover - a fitting souvenir of a great night from the never-ending James Brown Experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tour De Force From Start To Finish! December 5, 2009
By rollo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'll never know why this record was ever named 'James Brown Live at the Garden', it was recorded at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill New Jersey in 1967. That being said, this cd is an expanded edition which contains the original mono LP (12 tracks) plus another (19 tracks) in STEREO. The band is on fire throughout the show playing medleys and songs like 'Night Train' at the speed of light. James Brown is not in rare form here, he gives this music all he's got as usual, screaming, screeching and wailing like a madman. The liner notes are interesting and contain ALL THE MUSICIANS NAMES. This cd I would consider to be of his greatest live recordings second only to the original 'Live at the Apollo' of 1962. The only thing missing from this show are the opening vocal performers like Anna King, James Crawford, Baby Lloyd Stallworth, Marva Whitney or Bobby Byrd. What a show. 99 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars Live at the Latin Casino July 25, 2007
By Phil S.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Surely one of James Brown's most mysterious opuses: apparently never even reissued on *vinyl*, despite an impressive chart placement. Of course, the somewhat misleading packaging ("somewhat", meaning check out this review box title for the actual venue, another great landmark, though quite different in scale!), and subway station post-production effects, presumeably to make it sound like a huge auditorium event, added to the confusion. [The slow-running master tape didn't help either].
Then again, it's James Brown, who always found a special way of making order out of "chaos" - who else can keep a one-chord riff going for days, with mostly non-verbal emanations ("Hip Bag '67", track four)?
Yes, all of James Brown's live album have good audience sonic inreraction, and here the crowd is up in the mix, which adds to the excitement, although, in a sense, it also is a reminder that a big aspect of the live experience is in the visuals, and typically, though we can hear the crowd, there are no stills from the actual event. One can imagine the beatific glow on the on the receiving end of the funk (though that came a few months later).
I say, without hesitation that this is Brown's most exciting live album (the Live in Dallas set has that heart-pounding and foot-stompin' "pop", but is *paced*). Following the greatest vocal introduction in recorded history, we're right into nearly-manic renditions of "Out Of Sight" and "Bring It Up", and the audience is already close to being emotionally spent. Cut five has a tremendous "Prisoner Of Love", his best on record. The take recorded at the Apollo about five months later does not have the Soul or warmth this one has - he sounded a bit tired and distracted on that much better-known performance on "....Apollo, Vol. Two".

5.0 out of 5 stars The Unique and Fantastic James Brown At His Best December 13, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I bought the original record when it came out. The sound quality was so muddled, but it was possible to appreciate the live performances of "Bring It Up" and "Prisoner of Love" in spite of the phony crowd and ridiculous bass vs. treble stereo. I had seen James perform these in person several times, and when this package was released I was thrilled.
IMO this his the absolute best live recording of JB, as he evolved through the mid sixties. It gives us a great feel for the polished James Brown Show as it was presented by very early 1967. The great band, led by Pee Wee Ellis, is steaming throughout.
The original release is cleaned up a bit, and takes up the first 12 spots. Starting with cut #13, we get the real thing. There is a relaxed intro from Levi Rasbury, as the band plays a few measures of "Vonshelia," after which James joins them for some good warm ups. The band is absolutely dead on it. The only difficult minutes on the disk are during "Night Train," with the "time wasting" comedy routine. (Perhaps the star of the show was changing his outfit.) There were never any real breakdowns or intermissions in JB's Show, in the days, although moments such as these could be quite obviously extended. What follows is a masterful, wild, sizzling performance. "Bring It Up," "Prisoner of Love" and especially the all out gutbucket "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" are outstanding in a tremendous effort.
At the conclusion, we are treated to a few workings of "Let Yourself Go," with commentary from JB, present and "future" rhythms, etc. three times around.
This is a terrific album, and has great documentation on the times, the moment and all the players

4.0 out of 5 stars original release (3.5*) July 7, 2012
By Phil S.
Format:MP3 Music
The most exciting James Brown album ever released (LIve in Dallas, a close second). Other live JBs have far better audio but this one is the one: JB in the raw.

The recent "deluxe" edition gave us the "real" sound captured at the Latin Casino in 1967..and so quickly the first fans had to adjust their imaginations away from a 25,000 seat experience at Madison square Garden but a small supper club in New Jersey.

Yes, the first vinyl was not exactly something to marvel about, regarding a state of the art effort. Some very harsh edits and the ridiculous injection of a current studio hit single (when a chance for a live "Papa' Got a Brand New Bag" was not taken).

interestig that with all the crass post-production, we still have such a moving and exciting recording. Some spots are decidedly "over the top" in the sex machine arena ("Hip Bag", really part two of the unused "Papa's..Bag", and "Prisoner of Love", are not really for Granny) ...the "deluxe" edition seems to have mixed away most of the delirius audience reaction.
