Live at Home with His Bad Self is the first-ever release of the complete homecoming concert James Brown held at Augusta, Georgia's Bell Auditorium on October 1, 1969. The performance was intended as a live album for that holiday season, but those plans were scrapped once his band walked out on him. Roughly a year later, the Sex Machine double album arrived bearing some of the recordings from this concert. The full show didn't materialize until 2019, when the album was released for its would-be 50th anniversary. Considering how so many members of Brown's band left in the months that followed, the concert turned out to be as valedictory as it was victorious; this was the last time Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Jimmy Nolen, Sweet Charles Sherrell, and Clyde Stubblefield shared the stage with Soul Brother Number One. The great thing about Live at Home with His Bad Self is that it carries no air of being a major statement: Brown simply whipped the group into shape to deliver a show that he could be proud to deliver to a hometown crowd. The performance contains a few period oddities -- the J.B.'s jamming to Blood Sweat & Tears' "Spinning Wheel" fares a little bit better than James crooning through the show tune "If I Ruled the World," and both are better than Brown performing to a pre-recorded track for "World" -- but complaining about these cuts amounts to nitpicking. Every cut, including the old-fashioned numbers, finds James Brown and the J.B.'s in prime shape, tearing through their hits and extending "There Was a Time," "Lowdown Popcorn," and "Mother Popcorn" to the point that they're about to burst. As a sheer performance, it's giddy and intoxicating, but it's also a useful document of one of Brown's best bands at their live peak. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

James Brown's Golden Age

Between 1967 and 1974, the Godfather turned soul into funk. Flanked by the grooviest musicians of the day, James Brown orchestrated a soundtrack to changes in American society. And everyone jumped aboard the Sex Machine!

Neo Soul in 10 Albums

In the midst of the 90s when hip-hop was going through its golden age, a revolution within soul music was also underway. With Erykah Badu, D’angelo, Jill Scott and many others, the genre found again its class: an echo of the simplicity and refinement that brought to life the albums of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Roberta Flack. After years in the shadow of the reigning ultra-commercial and soft R&B, the noticeably more underground Neo Soul, or Nu Soul, relit the flame of soul music and returned it to its roots in terms of both composition and lyricism. A brief but highly influential movement.

Blaxploitation, the predecessor of "Black Panther"

More than 45 years before the success of the "Black Panther" movie, Hollywood targeted the Afro-American community by providing them with customized heroes. From "Shaft" to "Super Fly" and passing by "Blacula", the Blaxploitation offered at the time thrillers, comedies and even vampire movies, and worth noting, the music contained a few groovy 70s gems...
