Essential JB's album produced by James Brown and full to the brim with funk! 'Breakin Bread', 'Rockin Watergate', 'Little Boy Black' and loads more classic funk. Another excellent JB's album; this time, they get a little less jazzy and a little more soulful. Also, they add narration and lyrics to a bunch of the songs, and it works extremely well. The album works well as a conceptual whole, and doesn't have that patched-together feel that many James Brown-related works do. Friendly Fred Wesley's narration between songs definitely helps this along. The album's theme is getting your fill, both literally in terms of eating, and in getting satisfaction from life. Fred talks about being back home with the folks, gettin' down, being hungry, and he thanks DJ's, fans and JB himself for the opportunity to play. The result is a very up-feeling record that still gets down and dirty with nasty guitar work, rock-solid basslines, and frantic horn playing.
