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.
A1. More Mess On My Thing - 5:25 A2. The Wedge - 8:19
