THE FUNK STARTS HERE
Here it is, rumored no more: the demo Bootsy Collins and his band recorded for James Brown in 1969 that won them the title “The J.B.’s” – and changed the course of popular music. Also included is the complete version of “When You Feel It, Grunt If You Can,” presenting two never-issued songs in a 22-minute medley, and the unreleased instrumental “The Wedge.” The companion piece to Now-Again’s first-ever issue of the lost J.B.’s album These Are The J.B.’s (NA 5119).
All tracks mixed by Mario Caldato, directly from Brown’s original multi-track masters. Contains extensive booklet with full annotation, liner notes by Brown historian Alan Leeds and never-before-published photos.
