Christmas Tribute: James Brown
Last year was not the most merry of Christmases. On that day the music world - heck, the world - lost a true original when the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, passed away. (You can read Richard Harrington's wonderful appreciation, "Eternal Soul," here.) So in honor Mr. Dynamite, the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, Mr. Please Please Please, Soul Brother Number One (only the great ones get that many nicknames), enjoy this video tribute to an American Icon. Below is a 1966 performance from "The Ed Sullivan Show" and there are plenty more after the jump.
"It's a Man's Man's Man's World" medley (1968)
"Get Up Get Into It Get Involved" (1971)
"Boo-Ga-Loo" and "Don't Be A Drop-Out" (check out those moves!)
Duet with Luciano Pavarotti (2002)
A Classic Cape Moment (1968)
