20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of James Brown

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Elias
On the almost 37-minute The Millennium Collection: The Best of James Brown, versions of "I Got You (I Feel Good" and "It's a Man's Man's Man's World" show up in their most popular versions rather than the more R&B/blues-based ones that were unearthed in the '80s. In a surprise move, Brown's classic "Cold Sweat, Pts. 1 & 2" is unedited and gives a listener a chance to hear him say "Give the drummer some" as Clyde Stubblefield, Brown, and bassist Bernard Odom solely carry the rhythm for two great minutes.

Although all of these titles have shown up elsewhere, The Millenium Collection does offer a track that doesn't make it to compilations. 1967's confident and relaxed "America Is My Home" has Brown saying his classic boast, "I've got a brand new jet when I need to move/a soul brother made it
ow ain't that a groove." That alone is almost worth the price of admission. Early ballads like "Try Me" and his near histrionic cover of "Prisoner of Love" also are included here. And it's good to hear "Night Train" at any opportunity. 1972's million-selling "Get on the Good Foot" closes the set out and sounds great in its umpteenth inclusion on a Brown compilation.
