    Oh man, I love this song! I had never known it before and now I can’t stop listening to it. Maybe my favorite post of yours this year!


    DjPaulT Reply:

    I knew you would like it Woz. I am so surprised that this didn’t get more commnts. Maybe just because it’s not well known. I’m happy that you liked it.


    woz Reply:

    Yeah, I hope the amount of comments doesn’t equal the amount of downloads because that means a lot of people are missing a good tune!

    Hi Paul,
    Unfortunately this is only Part 1, but I’m sure you may see the funny side.
    My favourite bit (image of james brown) is him in the studio as Maceo Parker [?] describe
    how they ‘wrote’ songs.

    With Mr JB screamin ‘on th’ one’ and that kind thing with MP ‘interpreting’ and writing
    down JB’s ‘noises’ and what they meant ‘musically’ ie He ‘WAS’ the funk !

    further evidence here [the southbank show]
