James Brown: Talking Loud And Saying Something

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 31 March 1972

JAMES BROWN is renowned for being a leader of his people and never more so than right now. During his long and successful career, he has frequently gone out of his way to help society in as many little ways as possible, but never more than right now. On record, he has brought more genuine enjoyment than any other artist of the last decade, frequently telling facts that his fellow artists steer well away from – never more so than right now.
