James Brown's album Say It Live and Loud: Live in Dallas 08.26.68 is getting a 50th-anniversary vinyl and digital reissue by Republic/Universal Music Enterprises on Oct. 12. The reissue will include the previously unreleased tracks "That's Life" and "The Popcorn." The album was originally released in 1988 on CD.
Recorded at Memorial Auditorium in Dallas on Aug. 26, 1968, Say It Live and Loud has the first-ever live recordings of "Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud," which Brown performed twice at the concert. The reissue includes an updated essay by Brown's former tour manager Alan Leeds. The essay written by Chuck D of Public Enemy for the album's 1998 CD package is also included.
Brown, who is considered one of the most influential music artists of the 20th century, died in 2006 at the age of 73. In 2014, he was the subject of two movies: the feature film "Get on Up" (directed by Tate Taylor and starring Chadwick Boseman as Brown) and the HBO documentary "Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown," directed by Alex Gibney. Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger was a producer of both movies. "Mr. Dynamite" won a Peabody Award and received a Grammy nomination for Best Music Film.
