The third installment of James Brown’s Funky People compilations showcasing a mixed (but not brand new) bag of tracks by members of his crew. The songs had originally appeared on J.B.’s own People label and turn up here in re-mastered quality. Contains recordings from the time between 1967 and 1975, but this comp only came out in 2000, compiled again by Harry Weinger. More from the usual suspects. Dig in.
