Shaman of the Soul: James Brown

Brother James Brown

Brother James Brown

This most definitely is the album of the week.  It’s been playing again and again for days: when I wake up, before I go to bed; taking over the spirit like a bol weevil of the soul.


To get you into the mood here is a brilliant article on the man, James Brown, and the feature for this evening, The Payback, by none other than Julian  Cope. The article itself is a shining of example of the lads from Liverpool having more acute vision for American black music than most Americans themselves.
