In The Funk?....Oh,..JAMES BROWN Can Fix That Right Now

by cliff1066™ cc
Just wondering...Today I [Jan] was just wondering how all this funk-stuff started...anyhow? Asked BARTLETT, then went and read more online that JAMES BROWN was one of the founding fathers of funk, and his tune, [see at mpontvww], 'Cold Sweat' 1967, was the first true funk song. Well, I guess so.....WOW! That guy could do it all, couldn't he?...write, dance, sing, just look at those feet go, and the splits too? Amazing, AND,...he never missed a beat....cool...WOW Again.. What a showman. As you can tell...I love James Brown. Who doesn't?
 It looks like he expected the same kinda showmanship outta his whole band...they're ALL doin' it when they're on stage with him. They did over 325 shows a year with that energy and style... Now, that's excellence and guts...right there. He was inducted into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME in 1986, and ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE ranked him 7th in their 100 Greatest Artists of all time. He was in THE SONGWRITERs HALL OF FAME too in 2000. For more on funk legend James Brown go HERE, HERE, and more on YOUTUBE go HERE
----------------------
This is the video that started me wondering 'bout all this funk-stuff this morning...It's a cool video of JAMES BROWN and His band doing three songs on a T.V. program, called 'Soul Train', back in 1973...I remember that show well. I found it at MrThefunkmusicgame on YOUTUBE HERE. This is what it says about this video..."Uploaded on Aug 9, 2011
Get On The Good Foot, Soul Power,Make It Funky Soul Train 1973
From The Soul Train DVD"
