James Brown

I was surfing a little TV a couple of nights ago, when I ran across this from 1964. The show included a lot of the top names from the time: the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Pat Boone (you're kiddin' me), Chuck Berry, Diana Ross and the Supremes. Pity the Stones on that day, because they had to go on stage after Mr. Dynamite. As you can see, Brown's dancing is outasight. "Out of Sight," is really the highlight of this vid. "Night Train" is OK, but a little too much schtick. But, damn, "Out of Sight" is electric. You can see where Michael Jackson and Prince were coming from. If this doesn't do it for you, as Flava Flav says, can't do nothin' for ya man, other than grab you and throw you out in the yard.

James Brown

I just had a flashback....
Dad has the bright light for the camera out and Mark (in zip suit, I suppose) notices his shadow. He suddenly turns it on (a la James Brown) and those feet start to move...whoa baby!

1964

1964...that's about right
I think you are the original and James Brown somehow got hold of that reel...

Iz was having a sleep over the other night, and the girls wanted me to dance with them in the living room. I broke out my JB moves. Iz said that she didn't realize I was such a good dancer.
