December 26th, 2006

James Brown has died. When I can upload shows again, I shall put up a performance by The Godfather of Soul.

    Jeez, I guess the squeaky wheel does get the grease.

    I’ve been listening to the James Brown “Star Time” box set that came out in the early 90’s. And I am continually blown away by the guy. He sounds like nobody else and can make a kid from the farm like me feel funky. He was so much more than “I feel good”.

    I was behind 2 women in the cafeteria this morning who were talking about Mr. Brown’s death.
    “He was still pretty young”
    “Yeah, He was only 73 “

    Star Time is a great compilation. A roommate in college had it and I listened to it constantly. 73 is young? I guess wife beating takes its toll on the ol’ ticker. I’ll have a James Brown show up soon. Probably tomorrow.
