These 24 tracks, released during the '60s on Federal, Smash and King, are essential in the development of James Brown's music and, as such, historically important as well as truly fantastic. The Byrd family helped rescue Brown from his time in prison in the early '50s. Bobby Byrd then let Brown join his vocal group, which was the starting point for the latter's singing career. From that point on Byrd led Brown's backing group, the legendary Famous Flames.
