- Recording information: Bell Auditorium, Augusta, GA.
- Although the CD was supposedly “Recorded live at home in Augusta, Georgia with his bad self,” these recordings come from two different sources: a live concert recorded at Augusta’s Bell Auditorium in 1969, and a series of studio recordings that were doctored with audience noises and applause. The record, long considered a soul classic, actually features two different bands. The concert recordings feature Brown’s band from the 1960s, while the studio songs feature Brown’s then-new band, powered by Bootsy Collins on bass and Pelps “Catfish” Collins on guitar.
- Whether these recordings are “live” or not is really not the point; Brown has never sung a calculated note in his life, and one would be hard-pressed to distinguish whether one of Brown’s trademark howls was recorded in a studio or onstage. His scat singing on “Brother Rapp” sure sounds live. As the furious, barely one-minute-long “I Got the Feelin’” segues into the pure funky adrenaline rush of “Give it Up or Turnit A Loose,” it is nearly impossible to keep still. The groove is that infectious. Surprisingly, the title track is not the hit single version of “Sex Machine,” but rather an extended, more leisurely rendition.
