Even if this the complete session, the sound quality is not really great. I can only hear mids no bass no highs. Just average mastered without any passion. The former CD release is much better, even I am a vinyl fanatic. Bad sounding pressings do not satisfy a sound freeak.

It was mindblowing to hear this LP after so many years of the great CD. However, the auto-coupling is complete BS. Whoever thought that was a good idea should be fired. Horrible.

Geat album, but this one deserves a CD release, too

While I love the vinyl reissue overall, the main problem I had was the insistence, in the name of (misguided) authenticity, to replicate the track order according to how one might have listened to the LPs in the mid-70's, with an automatic (stacking) record changer (sides 1 and 6 together, 2 with 5, and 3 with 4). Most would agree that the ideals of vinyl authenticity are best "honored" in terms of audio/sound quality (sourcing from original master tapes) followed by the visual/tactile in terms of graphics, text and packaging. However, given that the vinyl was finally released in 2014, I do not know of many vinyl listeners today using an automatic record changer turntable. As a result, listening to the 3xLP concert in chronologic order, as sequenced here, is an aggravation, where one is forced to - manually - change LPs after each side instead of simply having to flip each LP to the next (chronologic) side (side 1 with 2, 3 with 4, and 5 with 6).

Fantastic to finally have this full night of music released. "Love Peace Power" was always my favorite James Brown CD. If I'm not mistaken, it was Brown himself's idea of how the songs were laid out. That might explain the song splits. Personally, they didn't bother me much. The additional tracks more than make up for the splits. The other singers songs are fine versions to hear. The one thing I wish was a little cleaner was the actual mastering onto the vinyl. Overall, it's a good enough job. The only live performance of the original JBs. Any fan of them will enjoy.

Having had a change to listen to the album (both as it was released in 1992, as well as here, the way it was INTENDED to be heard), it is hard to pick which is the essential version. The set above is wonderful--Vicki's vocals on "Yesterday" alone make it one of the best covers I have ever heard--and yet the flaws can be hard to overlook: due to the limitations of the media (or just how it was mastered originally), each side was just about over 15 minutes. So "Georgia On My Mind," "Bewildered" and "Try Me" are split into two (most puzzling is the latter--short enough as it is, part two that opens side five is just TWELVE SECONDS LONG, which is just unneccessary). Then you have "Who Am I", revealed to be a studio track overdubbed with audience from other spots of the album (as James, let's face it, has pretty much done on almost ALL his live albums). While a great track, he ends up using most of the audience reaction that people recognize to close out the album -- not only does it just sound out of place, but because of the subtraction, the album doesn't really end with the bang it deserves and that we're familiar with - it just ends.
