James Brown‘s 1988 album I’m Real will be reissued as a deluxe edition next month by Funky Town Grooves.
The 11-track album, produced with production team Full Force, is remastered (from the original tapes by Sean Brennan) and comes with a bonus CD full of remixes , including multiple versions of singles I’m Real and Static.
Neither of those 45s could repeat the pop chart success of Living in America from three years earlier, but they were both top ten hits on the Billboard R&B chart.
The I’m Real deluxe edition will feature sleeve notes by Alex Henderson and is released on 16 March 2015.
