Default Recitation by Hank Ballard origin?

Hi everybody. On James Brown’s ‘Get on the good foot’ record there is a cut on which Hank Ballard does a promo pitch for the record, over an instrumental orchestral soul song in the background. For some reason ever since I heard it, I have loved this arrangement.. I have listened to it many times, trying my best to ignore Hank, and immerse myself in the instrumentation. The song has a sax player showcased for the whole piece, and backup singers singing some line that I can’t make out. Does anyone know if this background song was ever released as a b side, box set filler, or solo effort from one of the JBs? I would love to give this a listen without Hank talking over it. Thanks! -TGO
