Sex Machine is a “live album” by James Brown and the JBs.
This is a bit of a cheat according to Wikipedia although it contradicts itself.
The first album of the double vinyl album was recorded in the studio with crowd noises added to it to simulate a live performance. Most of the second album was recorded live in Atlanta Georgia but again more “live effects” were added in the studio.
However on the same Wiki page, those “studio” tracks are attributed to concerts in Cincinnati in 1969 and 1970.
By this stage James Brown had moved from soul and r&b to funk.
