It's been a while since Polygram has issued previously unreleased JB and it looks like we'll have to wait a little longer for a package similiar to many in the incredible Chronicles series.
Volume One of the Millenium series for James Brown at least had the prev. non-album "America Is My Home, Part One". Volume Two has nothing as interesting for historians (the poignant theme from the film "Black Caesar", "Down And Out In New York City", does made a rare appearance, however).
The hit single tracks are remastered and the instruments have more presence, but earlier pressings are also impressive. The spoken intro. to "Sex Machine" is more audible here.
The only non-45 rpm cut is the heavily reissued (apparently) live-in-the-studio rerecording of "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose", the historic groove highlighting Bootsy Collins' bass, Clyde Stubblefield's drums, Bobby Byrd's organ, and JB's high energy hollerin'. The overdubbed audience is not removed as on earlier issues and that's fine with me.
What should have also been included are a few "lost" sides like "Love Me Tender", the super funky "Dooley's Junkyard Dogs", and George Harrison's (reported) favorite rendition of "Something". Space could have been made by using only "Part One" of the familiar tracks.
