While I'm not the world's biggest James Brown fan, this concert, off a rough B+W live broadcast for television has a good share of amazing moments. It took place the day after the assassination of Martin Luther King, and cities across the US were in flames. In an attempt to keep Boston calm, the mayor has Brown's concert broadcast live, and then re- run through the night. It worked. As for the concert, Brown is certainly a terrific performer, and the more bluesy numbers are great by my taste. But also fascinating is the danger in the air, which almost comes to explosion when fans start climbing on the stage. A very interesting historical document.
