5.0 out of 5 stars Roll Over Rover, July 15, 2005

This review is from: James Brown's Original Funky Divas (Audio CD)
This is the missing 4th volume to James Brown's legendary "JB's Funky People" series - although there are actually more tracks on this CD set than on all 3 Funky People albums combined, and many of the same female vocalists. The two CDs are roughly chronological, with disc one representing more of the 1950s and '60s bepob era, and disc two moving into the heavier '70s funk. Disc two is some of the funkiest music you will ever hear, and the tracks are taken from some incredibly hard to find albums: you'll really have to pay through the nose to track down playable copies of Vicki Anderson's "Message From A Soul Sister," or Lyn Collins's "Think (About It)." It's unfortunate that only early work from Yvonne Fair makes the collection, since tracks from her later LP "The Bitch Is Black" would fit right in with the other disc two material.

Of course, you have to pay through the nose for THIS album on Amazon, too. If you are not a collection fetishist, and just want the music, you can actually download the album for a lot cheaper through MSN Music or even the new commercial Napster (roughly $18-$20 at either of these). Sorry Amazon!

Yvonne Fair's later work is owned by Motown, and we all know how stingy they can be licensing out material. But her Motown stuff wasn't written, arranged or produced by JB, so thematically it wouldn't fit here.
