James Brown: The Original Disco Man (Polydor Import)
Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 11 August 1979
THERE HE SITS, a sly grin splitting up his face to show a set of teeth worthy of a prize nag, his hair dixie-peached to the right of his ample forehead, his dapper white safari threads not nearly so gauche as they once might have been. James Brown, the 'King', is enshrined in a huge wickerwork throne in the centre of an empty discotheque. The album's title is scrawled modestly above.
