Good God! Heavy Funk Covers Of James Brown 1968-1974
Good God! Where else can you find this many insane covers and interpolations of the Godfather of Soul, The Minister of Super Heavy Funk, The Funky President himself, James Brown? Or should we say, "of JB's mighty organizations of writers, arrangers, singers and dynamite musicians?" And no, we're not talking out the ubiquitous managers, Bud Habgood and Charles Bobbit, who received writers credit on damn near every James Brown record from the 60s and 70s... Rather, we're talking about the names you might find on a random JB production small enough that the man in charge felt he could give props where it was due. Like on the Steve Soul 45 with "Popcorn With A Feeling," where the writing credits list the likes of Jimmy Nolan, Clyde Stubblefield and St. Clair Pickney. Or the King issue of "Land Of Milk and Honey," where David Matthews gets his dap alongside Vicki Anderson.
