This may be my favorite live album from back when vinyl albums ruled the day. There are certainly a handful of live albums which capture the spirit of THE place to be (like Aretha at the Filmore, among others). Back in the day, just about every night at the Apollo was the place to be. This was never more true than when James was in the House, without a doubt.
This album just whets the appetite for more of the Godfather of Soul. His J.B. Fast Medley (almost a redundancy considering his work) is a phenom. This has a lot of his late 60's, early 70's classics, like Super Bad, Hot Pants, Sex Machine, Get Involved, and a handful of others that make you just want to move.
The crowd screaming, clapping and singing along (actually, more like yelling, considering who has the lead) helps generate some of the excitement that seeing J.B. live holds. Be forewarned though, there is NOTHING like seeing J.B. live. No live album can do him the true justice. Better appreciated, I think, by those who have some familiarity with the studio cuts. Still no doubt great stuff.

I have yet to hear the James Brown live recording that surpasses "Love, Power, Peace" for sheer energy, band chops, and raw funk, and I figured that this album would at least give it a run for it's money, but I was disappointed with the production.
Don't mistake this for a reason NOT to buy this album; if you check out the medley of 'Escape-ism/Make it Funky' (which contains one of the best onstage raps/grooves JB ever put out) and the intense 'Bewildered', it makes it worth picking up. But I've got to pop the subwoofer up a notch to hear the basslines as they should be heard.
Whether it was a soundboard recording or not matters little... I love James Brown, but his bands were generally as good as he was, and they deserve to be heard on equal footing, and they're too low in the mix on this album.
Still, the versions of the aforementioned tunes, along with a slinky 'Sex Machine', 'It's a New Day', and 'Soul Power' make this a great addition/addiction to your funk/soul collection.

Any fan of the funk must have this recording! It is a classic live album by one of the funkiest bands ever. This was done at the mecca of soul music at the epitome of his career. Twenty years later, it is still amazing. I have been looking for this recording on cd for years and it is now available. This is my all-time favorite James Brown album.

'REVOLUTION OF THE MIND (Recorded Live At The Apollo Vol. III)' was James Brown's second album release under his new contract with Polydor Records. Originally released as Polydor PD-2-3003, the double-LP set made #7 in the R&B charts and #39 Pop, hot on the heels of his first release for the label, 'HOT PANTS.' It was also his third live album recorded at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater, the site of his original 1962 triumph, the fabled 'LIVE AT THE APOLLO.' Brown had recorded that album using his own money against the wishes of King Record's legendary honcho Syd Nathan because he knew what he had and believed in himself. James was right-on, the original 'LIVE AT THE APOLLO' became the release that cemented his stardom. His second release from that venue, the obviously titled 'LIVE AT THE APOLLO, Volume II' from 1967 was also his first double live album release, and to my knowledge the first double-album to be released by a black artist. By all means, when you get it (and you WILL get it) be sure you buy the expanded Deluxe Edition set. The new album was released in December 1971, just in time for the holiday season, and charted #7 R&B and #39 Pop. The album's tracks were culled from eight shows the band performed over their four day engagement. Brown's current batch of J.B.'s had only been together for three months, but under the guiding hand of band leader Fred Wesley the boys pulled it off in grand style.Read more ›

Amazing that one of the most talked about, influential releases of all time has never been re-mixed (not saying, re-mastered) for CD; has never appeared in a deluxe package with unreleased material (of which it is said that there is a truckload from this July, 1971 gig).

But enuff of my unrelenting exasperation: "Escapism"/"Make It Funky" is a real standout, actually an opening song which surfaced on disc as cut four. JB says that "Sex Machine" is upcoming and we heard it on cut three. no big deal, but...

The "real" show starts with a terrific rendition of a terrific JB hit, "It's a New Day". From the kick off we can hear that on this night James will go for it...and the audience already sounds spent!

"Bewildered" is next and it's PG all the way, this track is not for Grandma on Sunday. He means business and the girls in the front row don't seem to mind.

Another ballad, the JB gem, "Try Me", is also a bit over-the-top, in that area, even for Brown - guess you had to be there. A true "heart" classic..thrown away for show-biz.

"Fast Medley", "Give it Up or turnit a loose", increase the funky feelin'...accelerated by an especially "up" "Super Bad".

Final three songs, "Get Up, Get Into It..", "Soul Power", and "Hot Pants" have a lot of freneticsm, but overall, are far from his best versions. The finale is a *super* "hot" Hot Pants; frankly, Polydor should have doused the flames somewhat.
But "overkill" is not in the JB lexicon.

Universal has announced a new "Apollo" package with the "best" from this deal....all I can politely ask, 42 years later:...please, please, please - slow down the tape, push forward the rhythm section, giving Johnny Griggs a taste, push back superstar JB...and add echo. Ow! :)
