Thanks, Tom. I think there is another one called "Santa's Got a Brand New Bag" appropriately enough.

I always listen to his Funky Christmas album this time of the year. It is truly an original. Star Time and Live at the Apollo are on my regular play list year around. Someone mentioned his BMW movie and it is my fav of the series.

RIP

I just put on "Cold Sweat", my favorite James Brown song, and realized it is impossible to sit still or stand still while this is playing. His music takes over your soul and your feet at the same time. God Bless you James Brown.

What a shame. He'll definately be missed, but certainly not forgotten.

James Brown... what can I say? He gave the world soul. Still amazes me, that guy was 73... wouldn't know it if you looked at him.

In his prime, from the rare TAMI show. Michael Jackson once offered $5k for a copy of this show on tape. Free on youtube.


I don't want to even hear about ANYONE in rock being able to scream like JB.

James Brown was one of the most exciting acts to see live. When I was a freshman in college, one of my friends and I traveled to NY a day early to catch two concerts -- The Beach Boys at Fordham U. (yes, Brian Wilson was still performing, I'm that old and Noel Harrison opened for them) and James Brown (Lou Christie opened) at Madison Square Garden (still on 54th, they hadn't razed Penn Station yet). I couldn't believe the energy he projected; it was an incredibly long show and he was "on" the whole time! I was still relatively shy, so she dragged me by the hand from our seats in the nosebleed section to the arena level and we pushed through the crowds of people in order to shake his hand as he worked the crowds during his performance. Up close I could see that he was so hot that the sweat was beading and dripping down his face. The sounds that he produced could be produced by no one else, and everyone in his group was working, working, working. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

James Brown, you'll never be forgotten! My family played Funky Christmas through Christmas dinner.

What an awesome performer. Music will never be the same without him.
