The Apollo Theater, New York, NY. Submit Corrections. An astonishing record of James and the Flames tearing the roof off the sucker at the mecca of R&B theatres, New York's Apollo. When King Records owner Syd Nathan refused to fund the recording, thinking it commercial folly, Brown single-mindedly proceeded anyway, paying for it out of his own pocket. He had been out on the road night after night for a while, and he knew that the magic that was part and parcel of a James Brown show was something no record had ever caught.
It's clear James Brown brought that same attitude with him when he recorded this live masterpiece in 1962. You could hardly find a better example, in any idiom, of a performer ready, willing, and able to give an audience his all. James Brown Live At The Apollo crackles with intensity, raw energy, and truth. Plenty of highlights, start with the introduction, it's probably the greatest of all time. My goodness this is the hardest working man in show business and you must not miss his best album. Being live at the Apollo - the audience becomes a big part of this album.

Publish date: Nov 16, 2009. Updated on. Dec 13, 2018. James Brown records breakthrough Live at the Apollo album. James Brown began his professional career at a time when rock and roll was opening new opportunities for black artists to connect with white audiences. But the path he took to fame did not pass through Top 40 radio or through The Ed Sullivan Show and American Bandstand.
Brown personally funded the recording of his Wednesday night show at The Apollo on October 24th, 1962. He and the Flames had been there all week already, and Brown was counting on the raucous crowds who showed for amateur night to give him the kind of support he knew Nathan couldn't ignore. For his part, Nathan had reluctantly sent one of his people to supervise the recording, but could hardly have expected it to result in this album.
