Perhaps you have seen him depicted in the feature film Get On Up; possibly watched the HBO documentary Mr. Dynamite. You might even have been amazed by accounts of legal shenanigans surrounding his estate. It's like James Brown never left, still stirring up controversy and whipping heads around in the 21st century. The Roots of Revolution is your ticket to understanding how his story began. This all-new set from Southern Routes presents a complete collection of the Godfather of Soul's formative recordings for Federal Records with The Famous Flames in late 1950's. This double vinyl package features all of JB's early, explosive hits including "Please, Please, Please," "Try Me" and "Think"; thirty-two dynamic rhythm & blues gems. Essential!
