More Info:

"The Hardest Working Man In Show Business" comes to life as an album artist with this album, the first to be recorded by James Brown since signing with Polydor records in 1971. The 'Hot Pants' line-up reunited James with some of his long-time stalwarts such as Bobby Byrd, drummer John 'Jabo' Starks, sax-man St. Clair Pickney and trombonist Fred Wesley. The album's first side begins with the swampy "Blues & Pants" with it's incessant guitar riff and a great Fred Wesley horn arrangement. The big revelation of this album is the full-length cut of "Escape-ism," which times in at 19-plus minutes. The original album ends with his re-make of "Hot Pants (She Got To Use What She Got To Get What She Wants)," one of James Brown's most well-known grooves and chart-toppers.
