James Brownï¿½s magnum opus! First release of 3-LP set as envisioned by James Brown himself.Love Power Peace is the sound of the Godfather and his youngblood J.B.ï¿½s (including Bootsy and Catfish Collins) electrifying a crazed Parisian audience on March 8, 1971. Sequenced and mixed by Brown himself for a planned triple album, the set was shelved when key band members departed before it could be issued. Here, for the first time, are the sides as intended, exactly as delivered by James Brown Productions to his label in 1971ï¿½a 3-LP set with each disc mastered from the original mixdown reels, and each with a unique name, Love, Power and Peace! Brown and band rip through recent singles like ï¿½Sex Machine,ï¿½ ï¿½Super Bad,ï¿½ ï¿½Give It Up or Turnit a Looseï¿½ and ï¿½Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involvedï¿½ with a metronomic precision laid down by bassist Bootsy Collins and drummer Jabo Starks. ï¿½Ainï¿½t It Funky Nowï¿½ ï¿½ formerly a slow, simmering groove ï¿½ is transformed into a fast, funky tour de force in which newbie Catfish Collins unleashes one of the most badass guitar solos ever, while a medley of three other Brown standards (ï¿½Papaï¿½s Got a Brand New Bagï¿½/ï¿½I Got You (I Feel Good)ï¿½/ï¿½I Got the Feelinï¿½ ï¿½) blazes by faster than the Godfather of Soulï¿½s personal Learjet. Interspersed with just the right amount of slow numbers like ï¿½Georgia on My Mind,ï¿½ and including tracks from the showï¿½s supporting acts that were not included on the 1992 CD (which was a remixed, incomplete show), this document of the funk revolution features rare photos and liner notes by tour director Alan Leeds. The way to jump on board for a trip through Jamesï¿½ world at the height of his career!
