Rostasi- thanks brother, this one has been bothering me for many years..you just made my week! I always thought this had to be more than just a throwaway arrangement.. a lot of power here in the building and then release into part 2! Great performance from Godfather on this one. I’d never heard ‘world’ (obviously) and wonder what other gems I have missed in JBs vast catalogue.

I’m not surprised by the story of James flexing on Ballard like that- I know he was a notoriously hard man to work for who kept his employees in line through merciless practice sessions and punitive measures. But, as they say, the proof is in the pudding.. not many artists have made a bigger impact culturally than James Brown, and it was his name on the marquee after all!

Thanks again for posting this one up- great stuff.

-TGO
