James Brown The Payback - vinyl LP



double 12 inch 33 rpm vinyl LP

Polydor Records - originally released in 1973, this is a re-issue PD 2-3007

The Payback is considered a high point in Brown's recording career, and is now regarded by critics as a landmark funk album. Its revenge-themed title track, a #1 R&B hit, is one of his most famous songs and an especially prolific source of samples for record producers. Musically the album is largely based around cyclic grooves and jamming, but it also features departures into a softer soul-based sound on tracks like "Doing the Best I Can".
