Not just one JB tribute. Many of James Brown's songs were pre-recorded by his band. Sometimes, when Brown liked a tune he decided to sing over it. Also some instrumentals were used to promote other singers under his "umbrella". This compilation focuses on his "recycled" tracks. The last 34 years I've been collecting pretty much everything Brown has recorded or produced. If you are traveling on the same path this list might give you chills. The following parenthesized songs belong together: (1,2), (3,4,5), (6,7), (8,9,10), (11,12), (13,14), (15,16), (17,18), (19,20), (21,22,23), (24,25,26), (27,28), (29 is a "relative" to 30). (31,32 are the full non-devided Parts1&2. Taken from the german LP "King Of Soul" which is a Polydor variation on Brown's King album "I Got The Feelin’), (33 is an alternate take from a German single. Universal used my pressing for official release, the masters were lost! See James Brown, The Singles, Vol.5), (34 is DJ copy with spoken intro by James Brown.
