(James Brown – There Was A Time Live)
One from the self penned ‘Godfather’..James Brown featuring the band known collectively, (among other names), as the James Brown Band who were to leave Brown’s service a few years later following a pay dispute. Cats like Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley and St Clair Pinckney all left to pursue their own fortunes rejoining in the 70’s after mutaul agreement.
This cut has always been one of my faves by JB but live it shows how great a unit they were. Recorded at the Apollo in 1967. Funk at it’s finest.
p.s it stops abruptly due to it going straight into the next cut ‘I Feel Allright’ which I couldn’t include due to uploading restrictions based on filesize. A shame but ‘them’s the breaks’ I’m afraid. Hope it doesn’t spoil your enjoyment.
