The funk motherlode for true believers: a 10-track double-LP compilation of essential dance hits recorded by James Brown at the height of his tenure as self-proclaimed Minister of the New Super-Heavy Funk during the early 1970s. Backed by the second JB’s, Brown delivers a deluge of unrelenting, unsurpassable grooves and exhortations. Track B3, “The Boss”, is from Brown’s soundtrack to the blaxploitation movie Black Caesar (1973); track D3, “Hot”, was heavily based on David Bowie’s 1975 disco hit “Fame”. A much-expanded and enhanced version of the vinyl-only Dead On The Heavy Funk 74-76 (Polydor 827 439-1 Y-1, 1985).
