It's A New Day- James Brown Uptempo 1964-1970


It's a new year, and what better way to get on the good foot than a compilation of James Brown's uptempo classics from 1964 through 1970. This music is a sure fire cure for depression or whatever else may ail you. Get out of your mind and into your body. I have many fond memories of listening to these songs, most of which can't be shared in polite company, let's just say that if you got a woman who can't get to this music you should turn her loose. I make no claims for this being a definitive collection its just something I threw together on the spur of the moment from the digital sources I had at hand but I think it covers most of the uptempo high points of those years in roughly chronological fashion and I'm well chuffed with how it turned out. Now I'm off to eat some red beans and rice, a family tradition for New Years Day, my mom's family is from New Orleans. Track listing after the videos.
