The UK 12 - AFRX 2 is shown as 2 Labels Polydor & Tommy Boy but I think these are both one & the same. I think this should all be shown with as Tommy Boy as the label.

That's not a beatbox, that Keith Leblanc drumming!

Absolutely awesome tune by two unquestionable funk legends. If you want breaks check the Nuclear Wildstyle mix! James Brown's post Seventies output seems to largely suffer from the Living in America mediocrity and that wack Full Force produced album, but Bam brought out the old Godfather on this 12" that we know and love - it could be something off In A Jungle Groove but with a funky beatbox replacing the funky drummer!

In my opinion a classic example of what Hip Hop was and has gone so far away from. When Hip Hop was about showing moves on the dance floor. Unity was glorified and peace the ultimate purpose. No modern Rapper could understand the genius of Bambaataa and Mr. Brown with releases such as these because their direction in there ignorance, is here on earth, or a lateral direction, while this song "Unity" is an unmistakable direction upward. Bless these guys I miss these days very much.

The Godfather of Hip Hop meets the Godfather of Soul. This is very much a funk record, with Bambaataa and James Brown equally providing lyrics. The last track is entirely acapella, and is popular for sampling, most notably Bambaataa's line "Shake your rump-ah" used by the Beastie Boys.
