And you slate the prog fans for liking "noodling"....that is absolutely the most boring JB song I ever heard FFS! Says nothing and goes absolutely nowhere! Noodle noodle noodle on skag.
P.S. I'm a massive JB fan - but that was bedtime for bonzo.
I believe, although I'm more than happy to be corrected, that that amazing track is the most sampled piece of music of all time. Now I can only lead you to the water, if you refuse to drink that's your choice mate. Brown changed the world of course and saved Boston in 68 during the riots after M L Kings assassination - far bigger impact on music and life than say Zeppelin (who were a money making machine and a double bluff - no singles etc whilst Grant manipulated the market/youth like an earlier version of Max Clifford). Brown sits at the pinnacle of modern music. Anyway I can do no better than quote this:
"The line-up was Richard "Kush" Griffith and Joe Davis on trumpets, Fred Wesley - trombone, Maceo Parker and Eldee Williams on tenor saxophones, Jimmy Nolen - guitar, Charles Sherrell - bass, and the guy responsible for 2,000 sampling songs, Clyde Stubblefield - drummer. Each note, each James Brown phrase is singular and timeless. Those 18 seconds of "give the drummer some" solo by Clyde are the best thing recorded ever! Classic!!!"
Now that doesn't make it good but it does catch the moment for me.
And a massive fan would surely love all JBs music, wouldn't he. In The Jungle Groove is an immense album by the way.
Another riot attempt to generate a bit of interest in black music - by far the most important music recorded in my lifetime - bites the dust eh
I will return - beaten but unbowed. Next up Chic I think
