James Brown - Live At The Apollo (1962) (RS500 - #24)

Here it is - the consensus greatest live album ever released, James Brown's Live At The Apollo, recorded in 1962, originally released by King Records and reissued in an expanded edition (provided here) by Polydor Records in 2004. After record company executives rejected capturing on vinyl his dynamic stage act for financial reasons (they didn't think it would sell), James Brown paid for the recording out of his own pocket. The results speak for themselves - this is Soul Brother #1 at his height, in front of an ecstatic, appreciative audience.

I can't say enough about how great this record is. So I won't speak another word, other than to say that if you DON'T own this record, there's something wrong with you - yeah, it's THAT important a release.
