"High quality 7" reissue highlighting another side of James Brown, far from the up-tempo feel good funk of the Godfather. A stunning rendition of the Jazz standard 'Summertime' is evoked here by Brown and Martha High within the context of 1970s social fallout -- 'Winter In America' to use Gil Scott-Heron's language, a political immobility that cast its shadow over the entirety of the United States. Brown & High take the leisure-jazz of 'Summertime' and turn it on its head in an act of realist defiance. On the flip, 'Message From The Soul Sisters Pt. 1 & 2' is a more familiar funk workout from yet another Brown produced female vocalist, Vicki Anderson, delivering her sassy soul masterpiece with impeccable instrumental backing from the ever prestigious J.B.'s. Overall, another 2 essential soul cuts from the master himself available once again for aural and contemplative consumption."
