No one can deny the impact of these singers and groups from the 1970s: James Brown, The Brothers Johnson, The Stylistics, The Pointer Sisters, The Spinners, Dionne Warwick, The Chi-Lites, Percy Sledge, and others. This collection, however, presents them in a variety of large concert settings 20 or 30 years past their prime, when age and gravity had taken their toll. Their voices were still strong and their backing competent, so there’s pleasure to be taken, but too often it feels like pledge night on PBS. While the 21 songs on this disc are without exception big hits, most of them are performed in finales or medleys, so they’re filled with introductions, sing-along’s, thank you, curtain calls, and endless shots of the audience, all of which detract from the music. However i do love 70s soul music so theres still plenty to enjoy. There is also a 15-minute European-made overview/documentary of James Brown’s life and work.
