AllMusic Review by

A two-for-one release from Universal, this set pairs 1969’s standards-heavy Gettin’ Down to It with the 1970 live album Sex Machine. It’s an odd pairing, as the latter is a major component in James Brown’s catalog, while the former is more of a fascinating curiosity for diehards (and spent roughly half as much time on Billboard’s R&B albums chart). Nonetheless, it’s a cheap way to pick up two very different sides of the Brown’s discography.
