James Brown IS Super Bad

Vernon Gibbs, Columbia Daily Spectator, 22 April 1971

WE'RE SITTING there rapping just before camera time. This evening James Brown is taping the Johnny Carson Show and he is in a good mood, having just finished a successful run at the Cheetah. So we are sitting in the dressing room doing a little medium weight rapping, talking about his music, politics, The Situation and other pertinent things.

Total word count of piece: 1993
