Some have made the claim that Get On Down may
love James Brown just a little too much. To which
the label replies, it's not possible to love James
Brown too much. The label's welcome obsession
with Mr. Brown and the incredible line up of talent
found on his People Record imprint continues with
the reissue of Funky People Part 1.
Long out of print on vinyl, Funky People Part 1
features the top tier of artists from Brown's People
Records label, including The J.B.'s, Lyn Collins,
Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker. Some of the James
Brown organizations all-time best material is
collected here, including The J.B.'s "Pass The
Peas" and "Hot Pants Road", Fred Wesley's in your
face politics through funk statement "Damn Right,
I Am Somebody", Lyn Collins smash hit "Think
(About It)" and many more.
Newcomers and diehard fans alike continue to dig
into the James Brown and People Records vaults,
and the more they do so, the more they realize that
it's a nearly never ending source of truly next-level
funk and soul music. And you can be sure this aural
goodness will keep flowing to the public, thanks to
the exhaustive efforts of Get On Down.
