Revolution of the Mind: Live at the Apollo, Volume III is a live double album by James Brown released in 1971. As its subtitle suggests, it is Brown’s third album recorded at the Apollo Theater, following the original Live at the Apollo (1963) and Live at the Apollo, Volume II (1968). After a triple album project recorded in France was cancelled because Brown had signed with a new label, Polydor, in 1971, Brown elected to do many of the same songs on a New York project. Unlike the cancelled live album, this was assembled from the best live takes from a week of shows, at the Apollo. Unlike previous releases live albums, this was criticized for poor sound balance and excessive eroticism. Note that “Escapism“/ “Make it Funky“, tracks four and five actually opened the show it was taken from. Despite flaws, it sold well and became one of the all-time most sampled sets .
