James Brown - Live at the Apollo


The Good Thing February 2020

"Our whole thing was based on James Brown. We listened to Live at the Apollo endlessly on acid." - Wayne Kramer of MC5

Here you have another classic selection from the vaults of the Little Tandem record collection. This record was originally gifted to me by a friend after I was heard saying something like "I should probably listen to more James Brown". Only after listening to more James Brown did I realize how right I was! We should all listen to more James Brown. If only there was a way to listen to more James Brown while you are already listening to James Brown! Hopefully someone is working on that technology. Anyway, this album was on near daily rotation in the early years of Tandem and was on the first list of potential albums to share with our Good Thing members. I have no idea what took us so long to get this into your hands but now that it is here, let's pretend you were never without. - Will Pratt
