Maceo Parker & All The Kings Men

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 18 February 1972

MACEO & All The King's Men, currently on the U.K. Singles chart with 'Got To Getcha' and 'Thank You', didn't come into existance until March of 1970. Until then, they formed eight-tenths of James Brown's Band and were the predecessors to The J.B.'s. The only two members of Brown's former band not involved in the switch were John Starks, who stayed on as his drummer and is still with The J.B.'s, and the saxophonist, who left the business all together.
