2009 two CD collection, the eighth release in this ongoing series that compiles all of James Brown's classic singles (A and B-sides). During 1972-73, he was rocking the globe with 'Get on the Good Foot,', 'There It Is' and 'I Got Ants in My Pants'; cautioning youth with the anti-drug tale 'King Heroin' and helping deliver hits for his super-funky band the J.B.'s with irresistible tracks 'Pass the Peas' and 'Doing It to Death'. He also experimented: A pop duet with Lyn Collins, 'What My Baby Needs Now Is a Little More Lovin'; a remake of his hit 'Think'; a rare cover of the Beatles' 'Something' and working with bandleader Fred Wesley on the score to Black Caesar. Several rarities give the package extra collectability: an unreleased vocal version of 'Hot Pants Road'; the single version of 'Honky Tonk'; the U.K.-only release 'I Know It's True'; the rare mono promo mix of 'Ants...'; the rare single cover version of 'Watermelon Man' by Wesley that features JB on drums; and a second re-cut of 'Think.' 40 tracks total.
