James' third album (his first for King) features 1960-era James Brown, moving from King's Federal subsidiary to the parent label with the hits "Bewildered," "If You Want Me," "You've Got the Power," "I'll Go Crazy," "Baby You're Right" (co-written with Joe Tex), and "I'll Never, Never Let You Go." This is one of his better efforts as well as a pivotal point in his career.

1960 was an important year for The Godfather, and an important year for black music. While white folks would be catching the bug for blues music in the years and decades that followed 1960, in the black communities, most of the folks were moving on and getting down to the sounds of soul and funk. Like the MC with the gold-tone megaphone 📣 parading through the block party, James Brown was there to help lead the way. -- winch (green noise records)
