The James Brown Show Live at the Apollo

"The James Brown Show Live At The Apollo, first released in 1963, is perhaps the greatest live album ever recorded. It remains, more than 40 years later, one of the best albums of all time. A tidal wave of raw emotion, Apollo is a stunning document regardless of sales. Even without a single driving fans to stores it became a phenomenon, selling a million copies. It was Brown's first hit album, and it is still his biggest ever. Aficionados mimic its introduction by heart, as if in a trance; can hear in their heads the rise and fall of the crowd's excitement just as any nervous band member did that crazy night in '62" (CD notes by Harry Weinger).
