Great post, guest Jeff. I had the same reaction when the T.A.M.I. show was shown on TV. "Please, Please, Please." the song with the cape routine, was phenomenal showmanship and soul, and his dancing/footwork was something I hadn't seen before. I was introduced to James Brown's music when I was in Jr. High in '65-'67. The schools were recently integrated, so there was alot of new musical cross-fertilization going on. Both black kids and white kids were fans of James Brown.
