Prepare to be blown away, by the “Godfather of Soul”.

James Brown, singing his Number One song “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s  World”, recorded live in concert on April 23rd, 1966 at Tampa’s Fort Homer W. Hesterly Armory, over on North Howard.

And somehow, this incredible recording-almost impossibly perfect in it’s quality, never made it to our ears.

That’s about to change, as that song, plus “Please, Please Please” (also recorded that night) are both on the soundtrack to the new James Brown biopic, “Get On Up, which opens August 1st.

To be clear, Please Click Here, to go to Rolling Stone.com, for more background on the songs and recordings, and to hear Tampa’s newest piece of Rock and Roll History.

But to give you an idea of how good it is, here’s James just a couple of weeks later, on The Ed Sullivan Show.  It seems to me that Ed knew some of the audience wasn’t gonna be ready for JB, and he does a masterful job at setting the stage.

By the way, the Stones’ Mick Jagger-who obviously studied a few of James” moves, is one of the producers of the  new movie. Chad Bozeman, who played Jackie Robinson in “42”, stars as “The Hardest Working Man In Show Business”.

Get up off-a that thang!
