Your Game: Live at the 9:30 Club Washington, D.C.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jon Azpiri
Even an avid R&B fan may not be familiar with go-go music of the 1970s. The unique polyrhythmic style blended horns, bass, and keyboard and eventually became the forerunner to '80s groups like EU and Trouble Funk as well as the Miami bass music of the '80s and '90s.

Brown brings his fans plenty of funk in "Wind Me Up Chuck/Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Walk to the Witches Castle."

While Your Game: Live at the 9:30 Club is unlikely to make Brown a household name, it is an excellent introduction to the genre of go-go music.
