Lab Overview

On October 1, 1969, James Brown's homecoming concert tore the roof of Bell Auditorium in Augusta, Georgia. The scorching performance was captured on tape and originally slated for a 1969 holiday release. Soon after the show, however, Brown and his band, which consisted of Maceo Parker on saxophone and three legendary drummers—Melvin Parker, Jabo Starks, & Clyde Subblefield—broke up. This forced Brown to recruit a new, younger group that featured bassist Bootsy Collins, and soon came "Sex Machine." The immense success of the track pushed Brown to shift his focus to producing and releasing Sex Machine the album, which dropped in 1970 and included portions of the aforementioned Augusta show. Now, for the first time since being shelved in 1969, Live At Home With His Bad Self is available in its entirety. The music has been newly mixed from the original analog multi-tracks, and included are 7 never-before-issued performances including two instrumentals, "Lowdown Popcorn" and "Spinning Wheel." "World," which Brown sang live over a tape of the studio recording's instrumental arrangement (very rare for the time) is also included. Another highlight is an actual live rendition of "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose," as the version appearing on Sex Machine was re-recorded in a studio. Double vinyl release with an essay James Brown's former tour manager and publicist Alan Leeds.
