An astonishing record of James and the Flames tearing the roof off the sucker at the mecca of R&B theatres, New York's Apollo. When King Records owner Syd Nathan refused to fund the recording, thinking it commercial folly, Brown single-mindedly proceeded anyway, paying for it out of his own pocket. He had been out on the road night after night for a while, and he knew that the magic that was part and parcel of a James Brown show was something no record had ever caught.

It’s James Brown‘s seminal Live At The Apollo. Listen to Live At The Apollo right now. Recorded at the famous and historic Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York in October 1962, the album was released some seven months later and captures the mesmerising live show of a peerless entertainer and his trusty group, the Famous Flames. Brown had made his first singles chart appearance seven years before with the top 5 R&B hit ‘Please, Please, Please,’ but Live At The Apollo delivered his LP chart debut, entering the Billboard chart at the end of June, 1963.
