Then there's a superbly funky, downhome instrumental reading of Pops Staples' (of the Staple Singers) protest tune "Why Am I Treated So Bad". Check that gutbucket backbeat, those sassy horns and that nonchalant, crisp guitar noodling around all over the place.

"In The Middle" and "Soul Pride" both are excellent groove based bootie shakers, heavy on the horns and riding that solid funk beat. "A New Shift", on the contrary, takes on a more jazzy, supperclub vibe, and while nice, it lacks the energy of the funkathons here.

"Sudsy" gets thangs firmly back in the groove, however; a fastpaced, blues patterned, no-let-up jam that's followed by 100% all-out killer funk in the guise of the divinely struttin' "The Chicken".

The final full length track, “The Chicken”, is the best of the album, with an excellent, funky bassline.

James Brown - Soul Pride (Pts. 1 & 2)

dope track with a nice drumbreak near the end. it has been sampled (slowed down) for digable planets' "9th wonder"
