Musical palate cleanser, shake ‘yo ass edition

Somebody mentioned James Brown’s remarkable Love Power Peace live album in the Playpen comments Wednesday, so here’s an example of what he’s talking about.

And here’s a bonus, a live clip of the song:

That sucker just crackles with electricity.  If you don’t own this album, you really should.

    Excellent album! I highly recommend it too. The Godfather at his best.

    All of us in that over 50 gang better be careful James will have all of us wanting to get up and do our thang. You know moving, grooving. Then we can’t get our asses out bed for father’s day. Don’t let the Senator make you hurt yourself😀

    It’s almost comical the way Johnny Cougar (Mellencamp) wants to be James Brown. Even the hair and the way he holds the mic.

      Same could be said for Talking Heads (entire Stop Making Sense stage setup stolen from Brown), Michael Jackson, Prince, etc.

      He’s the most important musician in US history.

    Chuck Berry, Elvis, and Robert Johnson would be in that conversation , too.
