This is a very cool project. Mr. Brown is singing a few standards, as well as giving some of his hits a new twist.

The highlight is the opener - "Sunny" - with JB harmonizing up a storm with Marva Whitney. This is his only released version
The intro. is slow, voices in a whisper; then into the verse with a passion. No screams here...just Soul in a different light..

"That's Life" is very subdued compared to the version heard on a couple of 1968 TV Specials; although the two released Apollo versions were more in the "Gettin' Down..." vein. Some nice improvizations on this one. Nothing to return to very often but well worth hearing.
"All The Way" is tremendous. This is perhaps his most *controlled* vocal...

along with jazzed-up rendition of his hit “Cold Sweat” and Break Beat hip hop classic sample “There Was a Time.”



JAMES BROWN - Sunny

- Live Palasport, Bologna Italy April 1971


his rendition of Sunny makes my eyes water in the beginning and then takes me on a wild trip....this guy had energy and groove for 10 people.
