James Brown, famously known as the 'Godfather of Soul', needs little introduction. It is rare for a soul artist renowned more for their live performances than their studio albums, but James Brown's stage presence earned him a reputation as one of the most entrancing and charismatic performers of his generation.

Consequently, his live album – Live At The Apollo – is an album that has gone down in history as one of his best, and perhaps defines him as an artist better than anything he recorded in the studio. Released in 1962, it spent over a year on the American Billboard Album Chart, and became one of the best selling albums of Brown's long career.
