Continuing Get on Down's People Records deluxe reissues series - which launched on Records Store Day in April 2014 with the release of the JB's classic 1972 album Food for Thought - this unique box is the celebration of James Brown's singles. Each 45 has been lovingly re-created with visuals taken from the original artwork. And beyond the singles themselves, this set includes a deluxe, cloth-covered carrying case with a People Records logo on the exterior and purple People embossing throughout the interior. Features 45s include James Brown's "Escape-ism" (1971); Lyn Collins' "Thinks (About It)" (1972); Fred Wesley & the JB's "Same Beat" (1973); the Devils' "X-Sorcist" (1974); and Maceo & the Mack's' "Cross the Track (We Better Go Back)" (1974). This is a soul, funk and hip-hop DJ's dream!
