"I love James Brown, and this current package is sad. The band is tight and the sound is good, but it's like he walks through the whole show giving brief nods to various songs in his career.
He has gotten old, and has lost his vocal power. He does try
to put on a good show, but the magic is gone.
I hope someone puts together a nice package of live clips at some point, that shows what this great man was. It really pains me to be writing this, so if you don't want to be disappointed, avoid this one."

"WOW I was able to see an advanced copy of this show today. The picture and sound quality are absolutely great. The original recording was in HDTV. James does all the great hits and the band looks as hot as ever. Probally the best quality live recording of JB I have ever seen."

"This is pretty darn close to what you see when you see a current JB Tour... great songs, all played very well and very funky. The band is as tight as the go-go dancers outfits. I saw JB @Caesar's a year after this was filmed and the set list was very similar.If you get a chance ...see JB ASAP...if you can't his DVD is as close as you're gonna get."
Did Anyone Say He was Slowing Down?

"After all these years, the man still has it, and mind you, he is well up in age and the only thing he does not do is the split.
But I tell you, this is a concert, especially when he performs "funk on a roll." and "Papa don't take no mess".
HE IS STILL THE MAN, in my book. A must have in your collection."
