really liked it
Recommended for: fans of james brown, soul, r&b

Really clever approach, using the Cuban Missile Crisis as a framing device for the stint at the Apollo when this was recorded. Lots of good info about Brown,the album, live show, and recording. However, the tie-in with the Cuban Missile Crisis, while very interesting, also seems a bit underdeveloped. Overall, though, I enjoyed this book quite a bit.
