Revolution of the Mind

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Subtitled "Recorded Live at the Apollo, Vol. III," Revolution of the Mind presents a 1971 James Brown concert performance, which means the set list is given over largely to the singles Brown had released over the previous couple of years, including "Give It Up or Turnit a Loose," "Super Bad," and "Make It Funky," all of them groove tunes with chanted slogans for lyrics, plus a medley of slightly less recent hits and the occasional real oldie, such as "Try Me."

That wasn't true of the first Live at the Apollo, though. [Initially released as a double LP, Revolution of the Mind was reissued on CD in 1993.]
