The legacy of James Brown is unprecedented. His influence is unparalleled, and continues to permeate through all variants of soul. J.Period‘s Legacy of James Brown highlights the incredible energy of Mr. Brown, from his candor, humor, and his ability to move, groove, and bare his “soul.” There are points while listening to this mix that you’ll laugh, as Eddie Murphy recounts meeting Brown with soundbytes from his infamous SNL skit “Hot Tub,” where he impersonates Brown, to an interviewer talking with Brown and mentioning Prince being enamored by him, and Michael Jackson simply stating Brown as his number one influence. Listening to Michael Jackson‘s “The Way You Make Me Feel” blended with Brown‘s “I Got This Feeling” is powerful, especially knowing, it was the song The Jackson 5 sang while auditioning with Motown. Prince‘s “Sexy MF” with James‘ “Sex Machine” vocal is pure genius as “Sexy MF” is ALL James Brown, from the drums, bass, horns, and organ. James Brown is the foundation of hip hop so fusing Public Enemy‘s “Rebel Without a Pause” against “Hot Pants Road” further shows, as the Godfather so eloquently said, “Nobody has a monopoly on soul.” Soul is Music. This is an ultimate mix that can be played from start to finish, over and over! J.Period has outdone himself with this one!! The Legacy of James Brown is one for the archives people!
