Electrifying live recording of James Brown and the J.B.'s! Love Power Peace was recorded live at the Olympia in Paris in 1971 and offers a rare glimpse of the Godfather in action at the height of his career along with his youngblood J.B.'s (including Bootsy and Catfish Collins) as back up. The performance was intended to be released as a triple vinyl set and was consequently sequenced and mixed by James Brown himself, only to be shelved once key band members left before it could be issued. Now, many decades later, Polydor has put together the 3LP set as Brown had envisioned, mastered from JB's original 1971 mixdown reels, and complete with deluxe triple gatefold sleeve featuring rare photos and liner notes from tour director Alan Leeds. A must for soul fans and JB aficionados.
