“Live At The Apollo Volume II” by James Brown - album review

TJR says

Recorded over two nights on June 24th-25th, 1967 in Harlem’s Apollo Theatre. It was the second album in JB’s Apollo Quadrology. The gig was good for JB over the years - over a million tickets were sold for his shows there - it was a ready made market to consume the live LP’s. A real decent set, at it’s best when the delivery is subtle, letting the vocal phrasing and string and brass sections shine out.
