James Brown - Ballads (2001) Retail CD
James Brown is perhaps best known for getting on the good foot, but alongside his combustible funk classics he also amassed a dazzling repetoire of molten balladry. An astonishing compilation which showcases 18 such sublime supplications, spanning the years 1958 to 1971, Ballads is brim-full of impassioned betrothals and potent Gospel-style testifying. Even when tackling potentially anaemic evergreens such as "I Loves You Porgy" and "If I Ruled The World", Brown imbues his performance with such primal intensity and down-on-his-knees fervour that they positively scintillate. However, it is twomore… of Brown's own compositions that ultimately stand out. "It's A Man's Man's Man's World" is, of course, one of his most familiar tracks, and yet it remains utterly spellbinding, from the dramatically swirling orchestrated intro to the fade out that finds "Soul Brother Number One" on the brink of break-down, desperately beseeching, "he's lost in bitterness." Less celebrated, but equally heroic, is "I Cried", co-penned with Bobby Byrd. This exquisitely tortured sermon sees Brown, backed by the Sisters Of Righteous, relinquishing love so as to defer future tears and torment. --Chris King
