On August 1, the new biopic of R&B great James Brown, Get On Up, hits theatres..
Directed by Tate Taylor (The Help) and starring Chadwick Boseman (Jackie Robinson in 42), the film promises to be a musical highlight of the summer movie season.
Three days before, Polydor/UMe will release the soundtrack album for the film featuring twenty tracks by Brown, both from the studio and live. Brown’s hits fed an incredible legacy of live performances, and the soundtrack further highlights Brown’s legendary stage prowess with two previously unreleased concert recordings heard in the film: spine-tingling performances of “Please Please Please” and “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” recorded on April 23, 1966 at Tampa, Florida’s historic Fort Homer W. Hesterly Armory.
The soundtrack also includes five recordings with new music production and arrangements by The Underdogs.
