Offered for sale is a 1972 Japanese pressing of the double album “Live” at the Apollo by James Brown, including the original obi.
Note: The title is a bit misleading; this album is the same album that was released in the United States in 1968 as Live at the Apollo – Volume 2.
About this copy: This copy of “Live” at the Apollo is a 1972 pressing on the Polydor label.
The cover is VG, with slight ring wear, and some corner and edge wear.
The obi is M-. This album was issued without an insert, as the gatefold cover has a four page lyric booklet.
The two discs are M- with a couple of spindle marks on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl. Clean discs!
A nice copy of one of the great live albums of all time.
Background: Released in 1968, Live at the Apollo, Volume 2 was the fifth live album by James Brown.
The album reached #32 on the U.S. album charts.
The first volume of Live at the Apollo  captured the R&B fury that would single-handedly define the soul music genre. While this volume reveals Brown’s updated stage show, it more importantly offers another prolific observation into the future of R&B — funk. It would be nearly two years before Brown would discover the likes of Bootsy Collins and ultimately form the J.B.’s. However, as Live at the Apollo, Vol. II testifies, “soul brother number one” is already submerging his band into more extended musical tangents, bobbing and weaving within a tight framework. …Brown’s percussive, heart-attack inducing call and response will leave even the most unflappable enthusiast slack jawed.
