AllMusic Review by

Whether this compilation truly constitutes James Brown's 50 greatest songs is up for debate, but there is no denying that it does contain a great deal of the man’s most excellent output. Most of his best-known material is featured here, including the soul classics “Give It Up or Turnit a Loose,” “Please Please Please,” “Mother Popcorn,” “Get Up Offa That Thing,” “Hot Pants,” and “Say It Loud -- I’m Black and I’m Proud.”
