Default James brown rare concert

I have quite a bit of rare JB concert footage. There was concert footage of JB at the Apollo Theatre that was destroyed in his warehouse along with priceless memorabilia before he died. Does anyone know what year or anything else about the footage? Any info on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

To which year are you referring? Brown played the Apollo many times. The most legendary concert is probably the one from '63. There only exists an audio track of that date - so far.

Thanks very much for replying. The only info that I got was of a concert filmed at the Apollo Theater that was destroyed in the fire.

It,s hard to believe that the JB concerts at Newport Jazz Festival 1969, The Westbury Music Festival 1972 were not filmed.

Man, I would give my right arm for a Live In Augusta Ga film of THAT concert!

We can only hope that more rare JB video concerts surfaces!

Thanks for mentioning it. I got it as soon as I found it was available! I have many JB clips and concerts collected over the past 25 years!

As to the live Apollo film concert that was destroyed in a warehouse that held many on JB,s memorabilia, I just wondered and hoped that someone would know any info on it.

All I know is that it was supposed to be an unreleased JB concert film. I have a catalog of JB memorabilia that was auctioned some years ago,but the auction didn,t even net $1 million for the items tha were sold.

Hopefully in the future more JB concert footage will surface!

I was listening to some Australian hip hop - Bliss N Eso's song 'send it.' They sampled a James Brown track where he says, "I came here to get you off. I came here to lose it." Anyone know the name and other James Brown songs like that? I don't usually listen to James Brown but I really liked that one.
