Get on the good foot with this recording of the James Brown Revue, via Big O. Cool that the full JB’s warm-up set is included here. If you’ve ever wanted to hear Maceo and Co. play hits like “Theme From Shaft” and “Backstabbers” today is your lucky day, my friend. Also tons of good Danny Ray flamboyance to enjoy — and of course, Mr. James Brown himself is incandescent.
“When I was coming up, making an independent film and trying to reach an audience I thought was like trying to hit a thrown baseball. This is like trying to hit a thrown baseball — but with another thrown baseball.”
