Artist: Various Artists Title Of Album: Super Bad @ 65 - A Tribute to James Brown Year Of Release: 1998 Label: Zero Hour ZERCD1220 Genre: Funk, Soul, Rhythm & Blues, Jazz Total Time: 62:17. James Brown certainly deserves a tribute album as much as any other artist, but Super Bad @ 70 is for the most part an embarrassment, a soulless and inept homage to Brown without any of the energy and invention which makes his original recordings so timeless. The artists which fill out the disc's roster are for the most part products of the alternative rock community, and their inability to muster the funk necessary to pull off their material is the record's downfall.

James Brown isn't what you'd call much of a songwriter-his stuff is all about performance and so this tribute is less about the hidden dimensions of his songs than about what makes his records unique, and naturally the artists who go farthest afield from the originals shed the most light on them . 13. Please, Please, Please - Sex Mob. 14. King Heroin - Doublespeak. 15. (Call Me) Super Bad - Little Sammy D. & Newborn. 16. Shhhhhhh! (For A Little While) - Broke Dick Dog.
