Where the 1962 Apollo album showed Brown performing as if he was cooking with fire, this first disc of the 1967 performance is as if he is cooking slowly over glowing coals.

The set includes a killer long version of "There Was A Time" – almost the blueprint of the James Brown funk sound to come – and other titles include . .
