Brown wrote the first of his message songs, “Don’t Be a Dropout,” and followed it with “Get it Together,” and “Money Won’t Change You” within months. The rugged grooves and piercing screams of Brown became a trademark of the urgency and prideful presentation of the black man in full awakening.

Some tracks — "Money Won't Change You" and "Papa's Got a Brand-New Bag" — have been restored to their original length after being pruned for radio play, and it's wonderful to hear the band stretching out, flexing its muscles in service of the groove, the almighty rhythm.
