I got the JB's anthology album, and it's exactly what i was looking for. 2 1/2 hours of constant FUNK, never letting up, and it never gets old. And James Brown himself is on quite a few of the tracks. I can't stop listening to it.

Sounds good, The JBs had something that most bands will never have no matter how much they practice, that was just the right bunch of guys at the right time.

Yea they really tear the sheet off of 'em. Wink

The only other funk band I can listen to this much (not counting JB himself), is Lettuce, and they only have 2 albums, plus one live album.

Looking back on my funk collection without the JB album, it feels incomplete. But now I have it so everything is right!

Some day you should check out The Meters "Look-Ka Py Py", not the same feel as the JBs, The Meters are a little more syncopated, but its the other band that I would rate similar in talent. "Look -Ka Py Py" is probably one of their best albums.
I have a review up for it.

I'll check it out. I have their album "Fire On The Bayou" and it's pretty good.

Their instrumental music is different from their vocal music.
