Editorial Reviews

The Singles Vol. 11: 1979-1981 closes a chapter on a successful in-depth series on one of the towering figures in popular music. Through the previous 10 volumes, Hip-oSelect.com has documented the many classic--and some not-so memorable--singles issued by Mr. Dynamite, the Amazing Mr. Please Please Please Himself, the Hardest Working Man In Show Business, the Godfather Of Soul. From "Please Please Please" to "Try Me," "I Got You (I Feel Good)" to "Cold Sweat," "The Payback" to "It's Too Funky In Here," and all of the B-sides and rare cuts in between, the series now delivers on its promise: every single issued by James Brown from 1956-1981, in a run of meticulously presented 2-CD sets. Disc 1 of Vol. 11 features 19 tracks from Brown at the end of his Polydor tenure and includes all of the 7-inch singles issued by Brown on Polydor that followed "It's Too Funky In Here," his chart return from 1979. Among them are "Let The Boogie Do The Rest," a B-side that could have been a hit, while "Regrets" is a country-flavored ballad that JB turns autobiographical. JB also released a fiery live album, Hot On The One, during this period, and stomping stage versions of "Get Up Offa That Thing" and "It's Too Funky" were issued as singles. Also included is "I Go Crazy," a cover of a previous hit that was only issued as a single in the U.K. Incredibly, with time left on his Polydor contract Brown was allowed to record an independent album for the TK label, and from that session came "Rapp Payback," a stinging performance that hit the international charts and is included here. Disc 2 of Vol. 11 features an additional nine songs: rare 12-inch singles from the man who created the extended jam, including long versions of "Get Up Offa That Thing" and "Rapp Payback." As with previous volumes, The Singles Vol. 11: 1975-1979 includes a thick booklet with liner notes from James Brown staffer Alan Leeds summarizing every track, an introductory essay and epilogue, a detailed recording timeline, rare photos, and reproductions of memorabilia.

Having diligently collected all 10 Volumes in this truly incredible series of American CDs (I've reviewed 8, 9 and 10) - I baulked at Volume 11 because of the dates. Bit of a mistake that!

Why? What Volume Eleven's subtitle '1979 to 1981' doesn't tell you is that on Disc 2 there is a far wider range of dates and therefore better stuff - namely the rare and hugely desirable American 12" Promo singles from 1976 to 1981. And in my book that puts this otherwise workmanlike compilation into an altogether different stratosphere. But let's get to the details first...

Released October 2011 (November 2011 UK), "The Singles Volume Eleven 1979-1981" is on Hip-O Select B0016037-02 and breaks down as follows:
(Release dates and catalogue numbers below are for US 45's unless otherwise stated)

Disc 1 (77:22 minutes):
1 and 2 are "Star Generation" b/w "Women Are Something Else" - released August 1979 on Polydor PD-2005 [A-side was also issued as a 7" Promo on Polydor PRO 100]
3 is "The Original Disco Man - Short Version" - US Promo-Only 7" DJ-single version (no catalogue number)
4 and 5 are "The Original Disco Man" b/w "Let The Boogie Do The Rest" - released November 1979 on Polydor PD-2034
6 and 7 are "Regrets" b/w "Stone Cold Drag" - released January 1980 on Polydor PD-2054
8 and 9 are "Let The Funk Flow" b/w "Sometimes That's All There Is" - released April 1980 on Polydor PD-2078
10 and 11 are "Get Up Offa That Thing (Live)" b/w "It's Too Funky In Here (Live)" - released October 1980 on Polydor PD-2129
12 and 13 are "Rapp Payback (Where Iz Moses)" b/w "Rapp Payback (Where Iz Moses) (Pt. II)" - released November 1980 on T.K. Records TKX-1039.
[Note: also issued as a 12" single on T.K.

I have alqways enjoyed the "Disco-Soul" JB, with super-fun singles like IT'S TOO FUNKY IN HERE, STAR GENERATION, RAPP PAYBACK, STAY WITH ME, plus a terrific B-side called SOMETIMES THAT'S ALL THERE IS, which is really Rock-Jazz-Soul in Ballad form. The vocal is alsmost conversational, after-hours. A hit? I don't know. But a Classic to me.

This Volume does not represent any foundation change in Popular music, as the 1964 to 1974 volumes go. Historians, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that JB is the author of "Disco-Soul" - further there are sides here from two very "pop" albums, well-produced by Brad Shapiro, but decidedly light, with a heavy dependence on smooth, agreeable voacl groups to make the music (possibly) more car-friendly? The bass line is thinner and Brown is noticebaly toned down, throughout.

The title tune to the Shapiro album is THE ORIGINAL DISCO MAN, and though it's pleasant enough, with each audition, it seems to get weaker. A real lowpoint is tghe A-side, STONE COLD DRAG - a drag in the unhippest sense - something about James Brown dreaming about a beautiful women and when he wakes up...she's not there.

At least, according to "image", we can *imagine* a gallery of babes queing up outside his Hotel for a non-musical session with the "sex machine." Undanceable..unlistenable.

Disc Two contains some material made before 1979 and overall, it is superior to the Disc One tracks: listen on headphones to THE SPANK, IF YOU DON'T GIVE A DOGGONE ABOUT IT, EYESIGHT, and the earliest, GET UP OFFA THAT THING, the penultimate party record, and interestingly, rooted in Disco! A great moment - Brown asks the aggregate who is playing drums. "Melvin Parker, Maceo's Brother!".

By 1979 James Brown could no longer compete with the disco stuff that permeated the airwaves during this period. The real JB's and Maceo were long gone from James Brown's band roster. The lyrics that James Brown conjured up for these tracks lacked imagination and the grooves were contrived imitations of music Brown had done 15 years prior. It is common knowledge that during the last years that Brown used first rate soul people like Fred Wesley to help him write and arrange music and lyrics, he would often change the more meaningful words and replace them with meaningless stuff like "get on up", "get on down". During the 60's and 70's, Brown used to surround himself with talented musicians who accompanied him well but when you hear music like this, that is supposed to be a profound statement from "Soul Brother No. One", well it misses it's mark. There is nothing memorable here. What happened to Bobby Byrd, Maceo Parker, Jimmy Nolan, Sinclair and all the good guys like that? James let them get away or either ran them away by treating them bad and/or not paying them right. I say this of James Brown because I am the biggest fan of his music and have been ever since 1961. I have all of his records and have attended his performances more times than I can count. This CD compilation of James Browns music is a demonstration of truly wonderful production work by Hip O Select, at least through volumes 1 to 10. This volume 11 occurs at the end of James Brown's long and productive period. One star.

I've been a James Brown fan for over 40 years. The most inovative music of the 20th & 21rst centuries.
