Background: Released in January 1967, Presenting the James Brown Show is the third live album by James Brown.
The album was partially live and partially recorded in the studio. The album does not feature any vocals by Brown, who was under contract to King Records as a singer, though he does conduct and play the organ.
The album did not chart in the U.S. The album has never been reissued.
It represents the exciting James Brown Show of the mid-’60s supporting acts. Baby Lloyd opens like a ball of fire with “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” and “The Dog”; Vicki Anderson follows with two Motown classics: “Don’t Mess With Bill” and “Nowhere to Run,” and the Jewels, from Washington, D.C., radiate on “This Is My Story” and a roof-ripping “Something’s Got a Hold on Me.” James Crawford finishes with four cuts and the James Brown Orchestra takes you home with a reprise of “Satisfaction.” The Godfather accompanies his protégés on the organ.
