Exact repro reissue, originally released in 1964. Subtitled The Instrumental Sounds Of The James Brown Band, "'Grits' is a slow, throbbing blues of the type Brown is best at. The horns are voiced in the harmony of the Flames, Brown's singing group, and back his moody organ solo with simple chord changes, building up to brassy riffs behind Les Buie's guitar solo. 'Tempted' is a medium tempo swing piece with an organ call and horn response opener followed by alto sax and organ solos... In 'Virginia Woolf,' the horns set a chilling, brassy mood, then organ takes over backed by Latin percussion. The only ballad in the set is 'Infatuation.' A sulking alto solo is complimented by lush, moody horns. 'Wee Wee' is simply a happy dance tune, reminiscent of Barbara George's old hit 'I Know.' 'Mr. Hip' is out of the soul vein but adds to the variety of Brown's repertoire." -- Rhythm & Blues Magazine
