James Brown: Royal Albert Hall, London

David Nathan, Blues & Soul, 19 March 1971

IF ARETHA is the Queen of Soul and Otis was the King of Soul, James Brown must qualify as the Super-King of Funk! On the evidence of his capacity, standing-room-only concert at the Albert Hall on March 10 – his first London appearance since 1966, no one comes near to capturing the title from him for quite some time!
