Soul Brother #1, the Godfather of Soul, Mr. Dynamite are all titles that have been applied to James Brown over the years. A hugely influential figure in black American music, he was a driving force in the development of soul music in the early '60s and funk in the early '70s. He has had more R&B hits in the US than any other artist, and has charted singles in countries around the world. One of the defining elements of James Brown's career has always been his electrifying live show and his performances at Montreux give ample evidence of this. This DVD focuses on his choice as the best of them all from 1981. It's a string of hits from start to finish delivered with all the flamboyant style and showmanship for which he is rightly famous.
