Editorial Reviews

2010 collection, the ninth installment in this series that compiles the Godfather Of Soul's singles in chronological order. In 1973, James Brown was at a crossroads: younger acts, nurtured by his original Funk, were on the rise. His hits were not coming so fast; his tours were suffering. He responded with some of the nastiest, longest-lasting Funk he'd ever unleashed: 'The Payback', 'Same Beat', 'Stoned To The Bone', 'My Thang', 'Funky President' (now a classic sampler's staple) and much, much more. It's all documented on The Singles Vol. 9: 1973-1975.

Format: Audio CD
I've been diligently collecting this series of 2CD sets since they started in 2006, and this 9th instalment is the fourth 2CD set to cover his extraordinary Seventies output (Volumes 6, 7 and 8 feature 1970 to 1973) - and if you ever required categorical proof of the Godlike genius of James Brown and his fantastically funky backing band The JB's - then these beautifully presented compilations are it.

But to the details first... All tracks are credited to JAMES BROWN except where noted and the pairing of numbers below are the A & B-sides of US 7" singles. Released 21 September 2010 in the USA (July 2010 from Hip-O's own site), but delayed to 4 October 2010 in the UK, Hip-O Select/Polydor B0014259-02 breaks down as follows...

Disc 1 (74:55 minutes):
1 and 2 are Polydor PD 14199, scheduled for release late 1973 but withdrawn
3 and 4 are People PE 629, scheduled for release late 1973 but withdrawn [credited to JAMES BROWN and LYN COLLINS]
[Notes: 3 was finally released as 'Part 2' of People PE 630 in October 1973 - the 'B-side' to "We Want To Parrty, Parrty, Parrty - Part 1" [credited to LYN COLLINS (THE FEMALE PREACHER)]
5 and 6 are Polydor PD 14206, scheduled for release late 1973 but withdrawn
[Note: 5 and 6 are an early version of "Stoned To The Bone" - see 7 and 8]
7 and 8 are Polydor PD 14210, released November 1973
[Notes: the UK and European counterparts (Polydor 2066 400) of the B-side use versions that are about a minute shorter; 8 here is the full US version. Also - some US copies titled it "Stone To The Bone" rather than "Stoned To The Bone..."]
9 and 10 are People PE 632, released January 1974 [credited to FRED WESLEY & THE J.B.

If you're a long-time, hard-core JB fan like me (and I've been a fan for the past three decades) then Volume 9 of the Singles series is a godsend. This is the beginning of the period that contains the pegs for many of the holes we've had in our collections. And I mean that not only for the regular fan, but also the superfan who has been seeking out the rare vinyl lps and even more rare 45s. There are at least a half dozen tracks here that have never before seen the light of day in any easily attainable form.
For example: James Brown, the Godfather of Soul and Minister of New New Super-Heavy Funk doing a cover of an Everly Brothers tune--and doing it as a salsa number. I mean, really--how many of us JB fanatics even knew this existed?

Basically, these singles chart the decline of Brown as a commercial force. The early Seventies saw Brown as THE major force in black music. But by the mid-seventies the Godfather was sent reeling into creative dissaray by IRS harrasment, the death of his son, possible drug abuse, an out of control ego, constant touring and the changing tastes of the music buying public. Even though this document of his decline is sad in a way, it is also much more interesting to listen to than many of the previous volumes in this series. This set ranges from familiar #1 hits like "The Payback" to total obscurities like "I Gotta Good Thing (and I Ain't Gonna Give It Up." Instead of a homogenous collection of familiar brilliance, we are privvy to an artist as he struggles desperatley to come up for air, struggling for his life, grabbing at anything he can. Some good, a few kinda brilliant, a few just plain weird. It's experimentation and oddness--like when a legandary basketball player suddenly stops playing hoops and takes up baseball--he's not as good as when he was on top, but just as interesting.. And it is amazing in its way.

And I'm sure volume 10, whenever that arrives, will be even more insane and interesting!

You might think that with the handfull's of James Brown CD compilations of all sorts that have been floating around as long as I can remember that Hip-O Selects newly issued Singles compilations would'nt seem that interesting but after glancing at it a few times I realized some of them,in particular the latter ends of the volume would be of interest to me. My James Brown CD collection up until this time (aside from MP3's) have consisted mainly of the classic boxed set Star Time however as fantastic a set as that is I felt that,as many compilations due didn't properly represent JB's mid/late 70's output quite as well as it could have. It may not have represented his biggest period of popular acclaim to be said but even on the early section of this volume James was still getting even Top 40 pop hits now and than and his dominance on the R&B charts was still strong as ever. But this represents far more than chart statistics. It showcases James in his most celebrated musical format-the single record. But more importantly it shows that even after his massive innovation in funk in the late 60's/early 70's he was already laying the groundwork for disco and hip-hop in it's earliest form,even if people didn't necessarily notice at the time.

We begin with James during the height of his work on soundtracks and influenced heavily by salsa/latin soul on "Let It Be Me",a duet with Lynn Collins that might surprise a lot of people who didn't think James' sound during the early 70's was all that diversified. Although if you look back his funk classic
