Over The Hump Old School Sound Check – James Brown


I got a chance to catch the James Brown Biopic, “Get On Up” last weekend, and I must say that I really enjoyed it. I never actually got the appeal of James Brown, in fact, I ran a poll with friends for years trying to understand what I was missing. I get it now, and I really appreciate his story, his determination and innovative approach to marketing himself. And the dancing, what an entertainer!! So, here’s a sample for my Thursday music break.
