My Review:

Get On Up is the biography of James Brown – a super talented performer, who also happened to be brilliant and savvy about the music business.  He was able to rise from extreme poverty to become one of the most recognized and revered talents in the industry. This is also a history lesson as to what was going on in the country during the 60’s. Amazing performances – a must-see if you love music.
