James Brown



As time has passed, James Brown has become synonymous with funky upbeat songs like “I Got You (I Feel Good)” and “Papa’;s Got a Brand New Bag.” The new James Brown collection reminds us all of the Godfather’;s softer side, with ballads that rival anyone, including Otis Redding and Ray Charles. When James Brown launches into a song like “Try Me,” you can’;t not be moved. Clocking in with eighteen songs, some well-known like “Try Me,” “It’;s a Man’;s Man’;s Man’;s World,” and “Georgia on My Mind,” and some more obscure recordings such as “I Loves You Peggy,” “That’s My Desire,” and “Cottage For Sale.” While this collection is far from a greatest hits collection, it does show an often-neglected facet of the career of the hardest working man in show business.
