James Brown CD & DVD
Oh to be alive and in a James Brown audience in 1981! Now, through the magic of Eagle's heralded Montreux series, one can be transported to a moment in time when one man's overt soul captivated a crowd with the kind of righteous fervor heretofore reserved for Baptist congregations. In '81, Brown could still pull off the moves that inspired Prince, Michael Jackson and a few generations worth of funksters. No one, but no one, though, could ever touch Brown himself, and this 14-track 113-minute DVD document, originally released last October, is proof positive. The companion CD takes the 10 most exciting tracks purely for the funk's sake. Special Features: Three bonus tracks by The James Brown Band prior to his entrance in '81, plus two tracks from his 1995 Montreux appearance, "Living In America" and "Sex Machine."
