James Brown Live At Montreux 1981

1981 • 1h 00m

While James Brown's unique vocal delivery and pioneering blend of soul, R&B, and funk have made him one of the most influential artists in American music, it's the Godfather of Soul's flamboyant stage presence that testifies to his stature as the hardest-working man in show business. This program captures Mr. Dynamite in his natural element with a concert chosen by the man himself as one of his all-time favorites.

Brown's 1981 appearance at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival finds him at his tireless best as he whoops, hollers, and shimmies his way through raw and uninhibited live versions of classics like "Sex Machine," "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag," "I Got You (I Feel Good)," "Please, Please, Please," and "It's a Man's Man's Man's World."
