Beware! Not as funky as you think it will be..
on February 10, 1999
I am troubled by StarTime as it contains at least one whole disk of the early, non-funky, material. For a better collection of James Brown at his funkiest try Make it Funky(1971-75). This cd shows how good JB was even after Bootsy left. I also recommend Funk Power 1970, which highlights the Bootsy Collins era. However, if you like the complete James Brown career with ballads like "Try Me" and "Bewildered" you may like this collection. If you just like the funk, buy the two cds I mentioned above and save about 20 bucks.
