2016 EU issue on 180g LP - A 1975 album released by the Godfather of Soul on the Polydor label. It is considered one of his best works of that decade, as it takes the core James Brown sound of the “Sex Machine” generation, and serves it up with a tighter mid 70’s funkier flavor. Fred Wesley is still very firmly at the helm of the band — and there’s a power here that’s equal to the later JB’s work on the Breakin’ Bread album. The grooves are nicely free of the “fast funk” syndrome that would creep into James’ work a few years later. The LP includes a 12-minute remake of “Sex Machine” that’s worth the price on the album alone. Without a doubt, a great funky LP plenty of funkiness to go around, and super DJ-friendly to open the wilder funky sets.

The most innovative R&B artist of the late '60s and early '70s, James Brown had fallen well behind the curve by 1975 when he tried to retread an old hit with Sex Machine Today. "I admit we wasn't as funky as we used to be, but we was tryin' harder," he muttered at the top of side two, and it was a painfully accurate admission. Brown was at a peak of self-mythologizing; his name appeared on the LP label four times, accompanied by the sobriquets "the Godfather of Soul" and "minister of new new super heavy funk." But his legendary band had fragmented and he seemed to have run out of ideas. It wasn't enough to call your music "disco soul," let out a howl, and shout, "Sex machine!" every few minutes. Once, Brown had led funk music in new directions, but now he seemed to be doing the best he could just to borrow others' styles and invoke old glories.
