James is one of my favorite artists

but the only actual albums of his I've heard are live albums. I get "Live At The Apollo"'s appeal (one of the most energetic performances ever and the audience is crazy) but mostly find it overrated. "Love Power Peace" (from 71) is definitely the best of them. Some awesome guitar playing on that one. "Revolution of the Mind" (at the Apollo in 1970) is pretty good too. But James is definitely more of a compilation artist. "JB 40: The 40th Anniversary Collection" is my favorite- 2 discs of pure fire. The 4 disc "Star Time" fills in the rest of the gaps and both "Funk Power" and "Make It Funky" are both great comps of his best tracks from the early-mid 70's.
