Gold Collection [Fine Tune] Review

by Jason Ankeny

Though it makes no mention of it anywhere on the outer sleeve, The Gold Collection is actually a live James Brown set, and a poorly recorded one at that; it's certainly hard to quibble with the song selection ("Give It Up, Turn It Loose," "Cold Sweat" and "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" are among the featured tracks), but the atrocious sound and disingenous packaging make it a must to avoid for all but the most avid JB collector.
