Love, Power, Peace (Live) - 1971
While Sex Machine may be the more popular of the live records from this era, Love, Power, Peace is a better document of the band, and the Godfather, really tightening up and letting loose. Compressing "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "I Got You (I Feel Good)" and "I Got The Feelin" into a 90 second medley, and stretching cuts like "Ain't It Funky Now" and "Sex Machine" into raw, sweat pouring funk workouts, JB was at the peak of his mighty funk power on this night. Originally planned as a triple album release in 1971, the LP was scrapped when JB left King for Polydor and several band members left to form Parliment soon after it was recorded. It wasn't officially released until 1992, and rivaling the great Live at the Apollo  in its sheer intensity and crowd interaction, Love, Power, Peace is an essential document in the evolution of raw, heavy funk and an absolute necessity for all fans of the Godfather.
