"Jelly beans, river deep mountain high done by Ike and Tina Turner, maybe I know, by Leslie gore, I can hear music recorded by The Beach Boys and dua diddy recorded by Manfred Mann. Elle Greenwich was one of the few women to break into pop songwriting in the early 60s. She grew up in Levittown on Long Island, and got her start when she was hired as a staff writer by the songwriting team of lieber and stoller. She worked out of the brill building in Manhattan, the headquarters of many of the top 40 songwriters and producers in the 60s. When the British invasion took over the charts and groups started performing their original material, a lot of songwriters ended up out of work. Greenwich went on to write jingles and also co produced many of Neil Diamond's early hits. I interviewed her in 1986, at the time her career was enjoying a brief resurgence with a Broadway review of her songs which introduced her to listeners who never stop loving her songs, but never knew who wrote them. I asked about the song chapel of love, one of the first hits that Greenwich co wrote and co produced. That song had originally been cut by the run as Phil Spector had cut it with her on this, but never put it out. Why do not ask me? And we always believed in that song. We knew it had to be a spring release or a summer release, but the nature of chapel getting married, June weddings, the whole thing. And what happened was when they did not put that little spider didn't put that record out. Jeff, I said, we have to do something with it. And just at that time, a gentleman named Joe Jones came up from New Orleans with a whole slew of people amongst them was three girls, which we eventually named the Dixie cups, and here were all these singers just hanging out at the liberals doors, and we said, um, girls, come here a minute. And we went to the piano and we played it for them, and they sang so it's anybody could sing chapel of love, you know? And we said, we have to go in and make this record. And it's funny. And my whole career of being in the studio producing, there were only two songs that I literally walked out of the studio and said, either these records are gonna be zippy do nothing, go nowhere. Or number one records. That was chapel of love, and leader of the pack. Did you have a special rapport with the singers in the girl groups being a woman yourself? I think initially it's funny back then, but because I was so involved in the productions and working with the working on the background vocals and what have you, I was not just well, here's my song, see ya. I got involved in everything. And it wasn't that accepted back then, a female being in that end of the business. Songwriter, a lyricist automatic acceptance, a background singer, automatic acceptance, a writer, because Carol king and I were really the only female writers then that I know of that actually sent out the piano and sang with song. I really got involved and that wasn't because there were so few of us that, you know, it was sort of like looked on and walked away from a little bit. But what happened was eventually the girl said, yeah, we have someone we can really relate to. Somebody we can talk to. We have headaches today. We want to tell somebody who's going to understand better than Ellie. So event at first it was like, well, who does she think she is giving us orders here with telling us what to do? But on the other end, if you just were very open with them, they saw they could be your friend and then it became an asset to be a woman dealing with the girl groups. How much did you when you were starting and did the groups that you wrote for really know about love and sex? We really know we knew very little. We really we really, as we said, you know, the good girls, and we, we just knew what we read, and we knew what we fantasized about. And our experience is really we're very limited. But if you don't write about what you're what you've experienced, just swim and can write about fantasy, so it comes out the same way. What were some of the problems that you had breaking in and getting accepted, being a woman because as you just pointed out, there really weren't many women songwriters in the early 60s. Well, I think I was very fortunate in that most of the early things I got involved in became hits. So what choice? Did so many of these people have when I said, well, hey, you know, I have a little track record here. This was a hit, and this is doing well on the charts, and I'm doing, you know, and it was almost like, well, we don't love the musicians would say, we don't love a woman telling us to go like this on your guitar, but I said, look at me is the thing. Forget and I think because of my success, it made it a little easier. Plus, I did a lot of co producing with Jeff. So I had the little male protector on one side. You know, so I think the combination of the success and having Jeff, they really didn't have much of a choice, did they? You got married to each other. And you know, after all, you'd written songs like chapel of love. You're running all these today I met the boy, I'm gonna marry all these great love and wedding songs, not too young to get married. Did you think that you were gonna have a marriage that was everything that the song said marriage was gonna be? Well, I have to sleep on something. I was, I grew up in Levittown island. On the corner of starlight in springtime lane, you tell me if I thought my marriage was, yes, I did. I really believed in the little House with the white picket fence and together forever more and absolutely believe that I was really a dreamer. And I think that's still gonna happen. Unfortunately, it didn't happen for us, and I think that was partly the business for, but yes, I was a very much a hopeful romantic. One of the big hit songs that you wrote was leader of the pack, which you co wrote. And it was performed by the shangri Las, who I always think of as being the tramps of the girl groups. Because they had such a tough. You think they would champion on the wrong hands? I mean, Terry, please. How did you get to work with those? Sharing their loss. Well, there was a guy that I knew named George Morton. Whom we because he was also one that was a little eccentric and would never show up in times we ended up pulling him shadow Morton. So George calls me. He has this tape and a bunch of girls he wants me to hear. Proof of the office and this thing went on, he did this male narration, 7 minutes long. I said, no, we can't do that. But there was something very interesting in the song. Different. I said, who is this singing the same black? I was like, wow, it's a very different sound. So a picture of them and said, um, see that there's an added thing with an interesting looking little group here. And met with them. And the record came out. Big hit, it's now time for a follow-up. So shadow said, we gotta write something together. And at that time, when you made money, you bought yourself boots or motorcycles. I mean, that was really what it was all about. So everybody, every male, Jeb, shadow, the engineer, the array, they all had motorcycles and they were always writing one. It's like, I said, why don't we do something with motorcycles? Okay, we can call it. There's always a leader the head of the group. I said, no, it doesn't sound good. And we just threw tiles around. Leader of the pack sounded important. And shadam one also had a habit of writing little soap operas. His songs all became these little mini soap operas, right? So with his influence, we melodically did certain things whatever. And he kind of had this idea of 6 song. And Jeff had written tell or I love her. So he was used to being about with the sick element. This was new for me. I said, hey, as long as it's not disgusting, and I can deal with it. So I think we had everything from the sound effects to motorcycles to boy loving, you know, the girl loving the boy that's forbidden. All of these death, my God. I mean, it was like, everything was in there. And once again, like I said, and there's a way she's Mary sounded, the way the whole group looked, I thought the picture was a perfect picture, and the record was just the perfect kind of a thing to be

"And now I mentioned that the album of ballads was recorded a year after, say it loud. Let me ask you about, say it loud, I'm black and I'm proud. You say in your book that a lot of you think a lot of white people misinterpreted the meaning of the song. I think they didn't understand it because I said, I'm black and I'm proud I thought they called it, they thought it was some kind of revolutionary, something that would separate us or something would black power and come into violence, but what they didn't know was trying to let them know that we should be proud of who we are and not feel down and left out and lead on some whites asked me to record it again because I thought it would get a little hairy in the street and it's not the place to be a little bit more broader than stuff and not go off and what about what the caucasians are doing or Italian or whatever. They thought it was a great idea later on. What inspired you to record it in the first place? Well, I was in Vegas. And LA and doing that times and police shot a four 5 Muslims. For me Islamic world and became a real mess. So I wouldn't regard it said a lot of black I'm proud and tried to send a message I don't like, but to the black as well that important. And that power would power private so missiles do it. And I started pride with more important. They mean I'm black and I'm bad, but black and I'm proud. Well, let's hear it. And this is James Brown recorded in 1968. Hurry up. Some people say we got a lot of melodies. Some say it's a lot of none. I say we want with movement. Yeah, we get what we deserve. We refuse. And we've been gone. One of the record I want to ask you about, and that sex machine recorded in 1970, one of you really big hits. And pop songs have always been about love and sex, but they never really used the word sex before in the lyrics, I think. What made you decide to actually use the word sex in sex machine? Where. Sex, I don't know if you're not far from it with the dancing and all that stuff. And in relation to do when they get on the floor with ballroom, she was driving chicken or James Brown or all these different things. So, and that's what's in your mind if you go about pool. And see young as I debated this once was because the men don't draw a woman. I said I would use that term because that is dance. I mean, it fell in love with the dance. And as you just sitting there and he's and then nobody doing a thing, it's kind of just almost like wallflowers. So the fellow generals to get up, I feel like being like a sexy machine. And let's dance sort of started. That was a concept. And it's not above leading somebody else's girl, oh man, is that I got mine or what about his that I like it the way it is. I mean, it means I'm really fine. I got mine. I worry about his, you know? Was anybody worried either your producers or disc jacket is about playing a record with the word sex actually in it? Jane Ryan was just no problem. Okay. Here's sex machine recorded in 1970. I want to get into it, man, you know? Like a lack of sex machine, man. Moving, doing it, you know. Can I count it all? One, two, three, four.

Let's get back to my 2005 interview with James Brown, recorded after the publication of his memoir, I feel good. Now, some of the musicians in your band became famous in their own right later on, maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, bootsy Collins. And I interviewed bootsy Collins a few years ago. And one of the things he said, I mean, he loved playing in your band. But one of the things he said is that it was hard for him to be so disciplined. It was around 1970, the era when you were recording sex machine. And he said, you know, everyone was freaking out, but we were standing up there being the tightest band in the land, heaven wears suits and patent leather shoes, and you couldn't jump out in the audience and freak out, and that crazy, and that's what we wanted to do. Did you know that someone like sea bootsy Collins really wanted to be wild and crazy, and you wanted this really tight discipline band? Well, I thought of organization, they didn't have organization. And just very important, you will take, you know, I want them to play at West Point as well as bring the street on a corner. I mean, West Point a navy academy place. I want to be able to go anywhere. And see what I want to be part of the bag and stuff like that I can play for the president. I go and pray for the people in the street. That's what you call being totally accepted and be totally straight about what you felt. Do you ever find musicians? I know you used to find musicians. Oh, yes. I'll do it now, but you know the music is not there a lot more respect. And then more intense on doing right. So, mister Brown, what are some of the things you find musicians for back in the day? Like a West Point. They got to be clean neat to shake that breath. She was going to be shy. The suit got to be pressed. They got a break correct. They gave me looking off when they should be watching me because I missed something. I find them. What's the biggest find you ever gave? I don't know. Maybe 500. No, I want to change musical directions for a second. And through your career, you've recorded ballads as well as a funk. And in 1969, you made an album with a jazz band, the Lewis belson band, and it was mostly or completely ballads on here. And I thought we'd listen to one of those ballots because it's a really different side of you. You know, we were talking before about how you kind of focused more on rhythm than melody in a lot of your songs. But here you are, really focusing on the melody. Can you tell us why you wanted to record this album of jazz standards with a jazz band behind you? What I really liked, I don't know something because he made those horns shout. And he did all the arrangements on the record. Yeah, he did. I wanted his stuff. But my concept was so different. There are so many customers. I need a key to turn me on, which is very hard for me because it was a little belt. It was a drama and why I was miss Pearl Bailey. It was given for me to do it's a man of man's world. Because I did what kind of fool am I Sam and Davis saying and I knew I wanted to go there if I heard those people do and I know I would do it so it was really quite an experience. Well, actually, that's the track I wanted to play. What kind of fool am I? What kind of rule? Yeah, it's like. It's so interesting to hear you sing like this. So why don't we play it and I'll sit back and listen. You sound like you can get rid of saying something like

"I feel the spine so not so nice I got a year wow I feel good it's two versions of James Brown's. I got you, I feel good. Mister Brown, the way you start that record with your, if I do it I'll sound ludicrous, but at the very beginning. It's so great. Can you talk a little bit about how you started doing that? Well, screaming and stuff come, I must admit one thing about it. A lot of the screaming, we were doing that time when Little Richard was real big and Roy Brown, people like that, basically screaming kind of came down the line but literally responsible for more screaming than I am because he's doing that. He was more or less into it. He sanctifies and I was holding, but I wasn't satisfied, you know? We are characters, bars, things from each other, but the original was very instrumental in and out of the screaming. Well, shortly after you recorded, I got you. You recorded papa's got a brand new bag. And I want to quote something that you say in your memoir, I feel good. You say, papa's got a brand new bag changed everything again for me and my music. I didn't need melody to make music. That was to me old fashioned and out of step. I now realized I could compose and sing a song that used one chord or two at the most. How did you start reducing your songs to being more about rhythm than about melody? What I did was that I brought a lot of my songs as melted, but like I feel good doesn't matter, but rhythm all the way through the song. I mean, even rock and roll stuff had melody. But I went with more of a jazz concept gospel situation. You know, at about this time you beat really start shifting from the two and the four to the one and the three. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yeah, go ahead. Right. From that point on with one in three. And even before I feel good, probably the bag has a one in three. Can you maybe just clap for us the difference? Well, one of the laid back and I was right. I said, the one has syncopation. But that didn't impact the combat. I mean, that's the difference. And you count it off right on the one. And you know what you say, one out of two and you build a truth, but what you love me, and I'm on the downbeat. That's the difference. And was it hard to convince the musicians that this would work or did they get it right away? No, I paid them. And they played what I wanted, and that was it, because they would have never agreed. They would have never agreed to it? They would have never agreed. Why not? Well, because it was in the head of Mozart, she would be over, strives to box Chopin, was correct. And these tell me that I was wrong. So they thought that that was a low end music. There's no law in music. There's a freedom in music. You get tired of being better down to one thing. So you start seeing what you feel. Well, why don't we hear papa's got a brand new bag which you recorded in 1965? Up

Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman star in 'Ma Rainey'

"The enter chadwick. Boseman died of cancer in august at the age of forty three not long after he finished shooting the movie mall. Rainey's black bottom now streaming on netflix. The movie stars viola. Davis is the famous blue singer mall rainy and was adapted from august. Wilson's play our film critic. Justin chang says that boseman's final screen performance ranks among his very best. One reason chadwick boseman was such. An extraordinary actor was his ability to command the screen without hogging the spotlight. His presence was so quietly magnetic that even when he played real life. Heroes like jackie robinson and thurgood marshall or fictional ones like king to challa in black panther. He still seemed like the most self effacing of movie stars but boseman could also go big like when he took on james brown in the musical bio-pic get on up and gave his most electrifying performance. Until now it's devastating. That ma rainey's black bottom is the last new. Boseman movie will ever see this. Excellent adaptation of august wilson's nineteen eighty to play from the director george c wolfe and the screenwriter ruben. Santiago hudson is both a precious parting gift and a punch in the gut even more than get on up. Boseman holds nothing back. He emptied himself out onscreen. He plays levy a gifted and ambitious trumpet player struggling to forge his way in a white man's world or this case a white man's recording studio where most of the movie takes place. It's a sweltering hot day in nineteen twenty seven chicago in the pioneering southern blues singer ma rainey played by a superb viola. Davis is planning to record some of her most popular songs. Mas name may be in the place title. But she isn't the main narrative focus here much of the story unfolds while the four musicians in her band are waiting for her to show up at the studio. During the rehearsal session cutler the guitar and trombone player played by colman. Domingo wants to stick with their usual arrangement for a particular song but levy wants to use a new edgier version that he composed. It doesn't take long for the arguments to start and the egos to emerge. How's your name in. So i just played a piece whatever they want them. Criticizing the people's music like you. I got talent. Oh man is we tagged. My dad had a note. I was gonna turn out like the name mccabe. I'm going to give me a bad and make some shots. I don't give them instead of my. I wrote and he say going to let me record when i get my band together. I just got last part of song. I got stopped or everybody gets out there. And other keeping the same idea from the beginning in everybody got a game plan for all his outward swagger boseman later lays bare. The anguish beneath levies self-assured grin in a spellbinding monologue about his southern childhood. He reveals the acts of violence that were committed against his family by a gang of white men he's witnessed unspeakable horrors and fought hard for his shot at success. And he's not about to let anyone stand in his way not even marini herself when she finally shows up at the studio via davis who won an oscar for her work. In another wilson. Adaptation fences is magnificent. Here in the kind of full throated diva showcase. She's rarely taken on becoming more rainy. Required quite the transformation davis wears a padded rubber suit and sports. A mouthful of gold teeth and her vocals are supplied by the singer. Maxine lewis but the performance never feels needlessly. Flashy and davis is best moments are the ones in which she shows us. Ma rainey's anxious calculating side when she stops the recording session because no one's brought her the bottle of coke she always insists on before singing. She isn't just causing a fuss. Exactly what she's worth and how much power she commands in a predominantly white male industry and she's determined to push yourself right up to that line without crossing it marines. Black bottom is one of ten plays in august. Wilson's epic pittsburgh cycle and the only one that isn't actually set in pittsburgh wilson's insights into the complexities of twentieth century. African american experience cemented his reputation as one of this country's greatest dramatists. The filmmakers haven't opened up the material in the manner of so many stage to screen adaptations if anything they've ruthlessly tightened the play and paired it down to essentials wolf directs at a furious clip. The sets are spare even drab which has the effect of your concentration on the performances and while boseman and davis are the stars of the show. Every actor gets a chance to shine including michael potts as the bass player. Slow drag and glenn termine reprising his role as the pianist toledo from twenty sixteen revival at the heart of the play is the bond between levy a fictional creation and rainy. A real life figure. The two are antagonistic by nature levy keeps trying to put his own stamp on mas music and he makes the mistake of trying to seduce. Her young girlfriend played by taylor. Page but levy and ma are also kindred spirits. They're both trying to make authentic commercially viable art with an assistant bent on exploiting their talents but levy doesn't have martinis experience or her knack for self preservation and the weight of his past trauma ultimately proves too much to overcome the climax is hunting beyond words were seeing a man peering into an abyss played by an actor who knew his own life was slipping away chadwick.

"My mother said, Are you okay? Yeah. James Brown. Wow. So I called my Uncle Butch from the radio station. Said Uncle Butch. You have any James Brown records? Who with do I have James? Round records? Get over here. So I went over his house. And as I said, because he worked for the radio stations, this whole apartment was nothing but records all over the place and he says, You see that whole top road. That's all. James Brown. What do you want to hear? And he pretty much had every record James Brown ever made. So I said, Can you pull them all down? Yeah. So Uncle Butch and I had a James Brown Listen a thon for about seven straight hours. And at that point, my uncle said, OK, you got it like I got it. I said, What do you mean, says, Well, I remember the first time I saw James Brown as a kid. I think I have the same reaction that you're having now. So you're not a grateful dead have Deadheads? My uncle Butch and I became James Brown heads from 1980 until 1988. My uncle Butch and I never missed one single James Brown concert Any time he was within a 100 mile Radius and Philadelphia So a year later, I start to play bass. And I take all those same James Brown records and I'm learning all of the bass lines from these records, and he hits me says I want to play with James around one day. I don't know what it's going to take. But I am going to play with James Brown. Come hell or high water. I'm going to play with James Brown. I go to high school, learning all of his records studied. Read all these books magazine articles. I'm stunning Everything I can about James Brown and one of the first things I discovered about James Brown, not just his great music. But it was pretty well documented that his ego was gargantuan. His temperature was legendary. He never knew what was going to set him off. He always had a habit of firing bad memories out of whim. Rehiring them a day late a day later, you know, so I said I said, Okay, I can handle this. You know, I'm going to meet James Brown. I'm gonna play with him. So, ironically, I become a jazz musician. Um, But even though I'm loving jazz, I'm still listen to my James Brown and I discovered that there is a distinct link between James Brown and jazz as I'm learning about jazz. I'm realizing the Improvisational nature of James Brown's music. It wasn't clean and perfectly put together. Like other pop records, James Brown's music had heroin. It was dirty. It was funky. All those imperfections is what made his music so great to me, And so I said, Wow. Not only am I going to play with James Brown one day I want to see if we could somehow do a project. With jazz and soul together. All my friends like, dude? No, James Brown and jazz..

"Former new york city mayor. David dinkins passed away last night at the age of ninety three. Join now but the reverend al sharpton president the next action network and host of politics nation. Right here on. Msnbc and rev. i've met david dinkins in person because you. I met him through you. I think he was here to do at thirty rock to do an interview for your show. And i'm so excited to meet him. He was such a great man. What are you remember. most about David dinkins well. I knew david dinkins. Since i was a teenager when i was sixteen and started my national youth movement group. He was the lawyer that incorporated us and down through the years. We maintain the relationship. And sometimes i would argue would on call them names and one hundred be more strident and it took time to understand that. He had such grace even under the most tumultuous circumstances and i felt he should be more strident. He said al. You have to learn how to get the job done. Keep your eye on the prize. But i most remember. Is that when we were facing a police. Killing of a young man named ahmadou diablo. Who in the hell of forty one bullets was killed. Nine thousand nine hundred bullets for only gone in his debut. Stick in a key in the door and the police thought. They said they thought he had a weapon. He was just going home. They were looking for someone else and david dinkins. When we started protests every day we would go down to the police headquarters. The main one in new york and sit in and hundreds would be arrested. He called me one. One is at what time y'all have. The demonstrations was a former. I said ten in the morning. he's coming down. I said but we're getting arrested. He's out seeing the morning and he came down and went to one police plaza where he had been mayor and got on a knee way before colin cabinet. He took a knee and was arrested and had them cuffed him with congressman. Charlie rangel and himself and me and we went to jail fighting police reform that he started with that civilian complaint review board. He never left the struggle. He was not wanting to be loud and boisterous but he was firm and made real change happen. Yeah absolutely you know. We started off and we could see charlie rangel and james brown. Lots of people in the photos that are that. I don't know if you can see them. That are coming up as as you're talking and you know we started off by talking about the way that dinkins was taken out of office by rudy. Giuliani this rage. That giuliani stoked already. There in the police against what mayor dinkins wanted to do which was changed policing. I feel like we're kind of having a rerun of that conversation about black lives matter about whether or not police should be free to kill it will in black communities. He tried to do something about it. Wouldn't you take from that fight. Is it dispiriting to think that after great men like this have tried after. You've tried after we've had all of these movements. We're still fighting about this were you. Were you fight you win. You don't fight to say the fight is over in a certain amount of rows. This is not pro boxing wrestling. You fight to you win and every struggle has had long struggles. I remember when nelson mandela gain which you mentioned then david dinkins had me as potted group. That went to the un with him. And just jackson. All of us. And when i thought about it took nelson mandela being jailed. Twenty seven years after fighting many decades around the pon-tae. How can we complain about fighting. We fight to. We win knowing that the victory is certain. And that's what they dickens would always say and as i want more national from new york activism. He said you still fighting. Now keep fighting. He come down national action network rallies. In fact he was there just a few months ago. We had his ninetieth birthday there and we never forgot this. Gentle giant had a had a spine of steel. And he didn't need to be boisterous he just needed to be effective and he was the one that broke that ceiling and made people know you could be the ceo of the biggest city in the world and perform. He revitalized times square. He started this whole community policing and in many ways you are more than correct. Joy is almost like to study donald trump. You have to study rudy giuliani. They took credit for things then get predecessor did and they used race to try and rev up a political career that ended up embarrassing them at the end. Indeed amen. thank you reverend now. It's always great to talk with you. Revenue sharpen. Thank you very much. I

"I'll give it an eight for now, even though it has the potential to walk to grow on me even more but I would say eight an excellent record. As I said and the standout track is I'll go crazy and now, let's move on to a studio record. That came out in nineteen sixty-seven the 17 album by by James Brown. Wow, primarily known for its title track called sweat. Okay, so cold sweat in the opinion of many folks many music aficionados is one of the tracks that truly defined James Brown's funky sound. They say that that track is basically the Cornerstone on everything that followed afterwards. So Alexander, what do you think about this track cold sweat a great records be honest. I really enjoyed this one even more than the previous one. So many great tracks. Yes, I Define a sound here. You can also hear some tracks with the 12 Bar Blues here and there and I also like the addition of love songs and also ballots. You'll have a couple of notes here. So I think that most of these songs are about love and I personally relate relate to some of them. Yeah. I wanted to ask you also about this song Stagger Lee dead. No, I'm not sure if it's love themes know as as the rest of the record seems because you have some lyrics like Stagger Lee crying Billy, please please don't take my life. I got three children and a very sickly wife this kind of sounds like a like a danger Gambler. Someone maybe a criminal. I'm not sure. Do you have any insight on that? But yeah, of course, I mean, of course, it's not a love song. It's a really famous folk tune that I think comes from the Caribbean islands and it's been covered so many times with so many artists even the likes of the Clash for example, and I think Nick Cave even wrote his own song featuring Stagger Lee wage has a character, of course, it's about two men gambling, you know, the at the end of the day one is begging the other not to take his birth. So very classic dark folk tune covered by so many folks. So that's interesting to hear James Brown steak on it's as well have to say though with this record while cold sweat. First of all can't even emphasis how good cold sweat part 1 and part 2 are with everything you want in funk music the grooves the Fantastic horns. Just driving the sun forward James Brown being, you know his name..

"And then there's this there's another great track here think I remember hearing this song If you believe me the first time I heard it it was actually a cover done by none other than Mick Jagger and you know, it's interesting to bring up Mick Jagger because you feel that I thought somebody like James Brown was such a huge influence on a number of performers later on Rock performers. Primarily. I would say probably not dead pop. Yes, certainly two weeks to an extent, but just that whole stage Persona thing, you know, it's not just about singing about his great vocal performance will be there but also about riling up the crowd getting people to you know, getting all eyes on him. So to say and this is something that years later on picked up by the likes of Mick Jagger not to mention all the cool dance moves that unfortunately we couldn't see while listening to this music but we could easily imagine I would say so yep. This is absolutely tremendous. He storms through the songs. It's a very short record 30 some minutes. There's one was amazing. It was just amazing. You know when I was listening to the record it was over in like, I don't know ten minutes actually. It's like 30 minutes long, but the song just drive you and entertain you so much that you just have that feeling that it's very short. But yeah, even though it's short there's still a couple of cuts with long jams like lost someone which is I think it's ten minutes. Yeah, so and that's fascinating to listen to that whole philosophy behind this music, you know, setting the groove getting into it and and you know, you can you can hear the seeds of what's to come later on. So classic album very much. Probably the cream of the crops as far as R&B and Soul music is concerned from that time. The band is awesome. And you know, what's interesting about this record two things. Actually that I want to mention one is the James Brown financed recording this record himself. So he had so much to believe in what he was doing that he financed the record and he even went against the wishes of the record company that wanted him. Not to release something like this because they believe that all these songs having already been released before would not not really appeal to the crowd because they already heard all of them. But little did they know because this was one of his best selling records at the time and it went out of print in no time and they had to pray more and at the end of the day James Brown's philosophy want over his record label. He was right to believe in this kind of project and I also think that this record is the reason why James Brown should mainly be remember as a phenomenal live performer. Not just the Pioneer but also live performer..

"Obviously, I thought if he was the Godfather of punk and that a lot of funk musicians that I personally listened to have drawn a lot of inspiration from him. And also it's probably I would say the inventor of any kind of dance music, you know, any kind of disco-funk e stole stuff. We've covered some similar acts before on this show. So yeah, he he was kind of the main figure in in Dead music world and in that part of the music world, and also one thing that's not quite positive and legendary. I think that there is some controversy attached to his boss name. Do you have maybe some stories to show to share with us later or was was that something else? You know, I'm not sure if I confused him but someone To be fair. There was some controversy regarding his relationships with women, but I'm not sure I'd really want to delve into right now because I'm not so familiar with details. So yes much as he was revolutionary as much as as much of a great musician that he was he also had quite a troubled past but so did many other artists seems that's something that's almost inevitable in many cases and it's something that we try to bring up the show tried to shed more light on the musicians as people they both their good and bad sides, but I think with James Brown I wouldn't really delve into it much right now. Let's just say that He's a legacy is mainly about music and about his political activism as well. I would say and we'll try to stick with that if you don't mind off. Yeah, sure. Sure. I mean we mostly focus focus on their music but you know, I kind of remember that you weren't hesitant to slating North Palm. But now when it comes to other musicians are kind of your kind of hesitant, you kind of want to cover stuff but that's okay. No, I just forgot the details, you know, and I just forgot all the say the nasty details. I'm looking at some stuff right now apparently. He was quite abusive back in nineteen sixty-two. He dated a young singer from his band who was only seventeen years old at the time. I think he was around 30 2930..

"You know, James Brown and and Funk badge. And also we are kind of sticking to let's say the old music so you can never go wrong with that right? I'm also super excited about this episode. I chose the name. This stuff to roll and I'm I always loved it when we go back and when we explore the true Pioneers the true masters of The Craft but not the same thing too much. I'll ask you one question Alexander when somebody says the word Funk, what's the first thing that comes to your mind off spontaneousness? I would say I think you know being spontaneous with your singing and you're playing is the the main thing about funk music Foundation of punk music in my eyes water. Yes, of course, and I think that when it comes to such qualities is not many people that exemplify better than James Brown, but I think behind all that spontaneity that you can hear in James Brown's music. There's a lot of thoughts there's a lot of brilliant one might say ideas. So James Brown is by many considered and rightfully so it almost undoubtedly, so the Godfather of funk and we can say that he's the one of his one of those people who developed this sound may be the most important figure in funk. Music James Brown was born in 1933. And initially he had a lot of success back in 1950s with his group the famous Flames. It was a singing group. So key came from that Soul background, he started off as a soul singer primarily and he stayed a soul singer for the rest of his career one might say because Funk does not exclude song If if I may say so so James Brown went through a number of transformations in his early. And eventually eventually evolved the sound that's so unique and so special that nowadays. We might hear it a lot in so many artists music. We may hear people copying it all the time. So it might have turned into a bit of a cliche but in its infancy it was so exciting and so new and and so long It's basically taking the World by the storm. But another thing that I think worth mentioning when it comes to James Brown is his political activism in addition to move. I think he over the years. He realized that his music could be an outlet for much more and he started incorporating political and social messages in the song and I think he was one of the leading black artists to do. So in in his Fight Against Racism. So Alexander prior to this episode, what was your knowledge of James Brown? What were you familiar with?.

I got it from and I said, Where's my change? Ground poster and they were very nice. They said. Oh Cove, it cove. They covered everything. So I don't even know anymore. You put it in opposed to thing you send it in, and I get my poster Colvin what they blame everything. So the post office there's also covert discover that no, it's not that you can't get you. And this, by the way, I don't think it's postal Service. My James Brown posters coming from, like FedEx or something, and still late. It's just the way it is. Nowadays. People take their time. So I don't know that you could count on the post office to get the vote out in time. And by the way, I have to ask you. Do you think that they didn't seem to send the James around? Can I Say that is racist. Can I call black lives matter? And I could say they're holding up my James Brown wall decals. Can I say that? I think that's racist. I really do. And I think I should go. I think we should have a protest march because I didn't get my cheese. But I'm just saying, Hey, yeah. James Brown did that that he is the ultimate social warrior did more from the With the black community and anybody that you see around nowadays I say that right now, 12 minutes have to seven o'clock. Jo on the radio. Great to have you with us. Dr. Steven Greer is going to join us in about 10 minutes. The man who told you How you can contain the Woo Wan China virus, How you could do Steven Ria's. He's the guy. He was the guy that said it album is that six months ago was like Joe D'Souza. Pandemic started in February. March like that, Steven Greer is the guy. And then somewhere around March. Yeah, right. Right. This is what you need right on the show were a cutting edge. I'm done running. You know, Patterson's on the back, but I am and Steven Green zero. Then the president says they vilified him. Now. Now he's talking about the convalescent plasma cavil. Instant the treatment you nowhere. Just you take the the blood from a patient who had the cove in 19. And then you put it into another. And that was the bull s Steven Greer about it because he has all the answers. They have pharmaceuticals. To containing the only thing is, it's like a al, You know, I didn't tell you so you know, when I was traveling around, I don't want to give the locations I don't want to break confidences. You know people, But when I was around people I would hear people had the virus And then also, I could quarantine because they save you around somebody you should, anyway. And so I did. But then so many people got like the one thing about the virus because I think you can contain it. I think they really can't but man, that's that is voracious because of it hits you. It stays with you, and if you don't get it early, it could. That's where there's a problem. But it's really I I skirted a bullet a bullet because I could have been around all the A lot of folks that had it, and it's a good thing that I self quarantines a better safe than sorry. And I will let Steven Greer had the best way to do it. But scary out when you get out and about Are you at risk Because you had the cancer. Do they say that? You know, my oncologist told me back in March. When this has just started on DH. I was able to visit her. She said No, she said you. You're OK. You're not immune compromised, but still you take the precautions anyway. I mean, it's very dangerous and I don't want it to be a situation that look. In New York and New Jersey. Hospitalizations air down less people are being intubated. We're seeing less of an infection rate, but still nobody wants to go into a hospital and get put on a ventilator and have a tube stuck down their throats. So It's very important that you take the proper precautions. And I'm all I'm doing is doing the same thing that I did when I had my cancer wash your hands constantly wipe down the the stuff that you're using. When you're outside where Mask It's pretty simple. I must say that I adhere to all those things. And I don't mean to be frivolous. I'm not one of those guys. No, no, don't worry about it, but I know they have the medicines for But you still there Still social distancing you away from your mom. When you go visit her. The facility is doing that They're not allowing anybody into the facility. You could. You could make an outdoor visit. But it's only for 30 minutes and they put you out like a little courtyard or whatever you know when they have specific times when they do it. My mom is really not the physical condition to even be outside because she can't even walk so She's you know, essentially trapped to a bed, so I have to talk her through a window or on the phone and, you know, listen, it's very difficult. We want to get her home and and make her comfortable. But I understand why the facility is doing what they're doing. They're trying to prevent code should getting inside. I agree with that 100% and incidentally, I think my grandmother's afraid I'm going to get her sick because she would even touch my silly putty. Yesterday. You got Joe lives with his 95 year old but you know what? It's true, though she may have a point. Is that when you're around out about New York and you get back home, Jo, you know you got to be careful about that. But you still keep your silly putty around. I do. You know, I was feeling nostalgic and I happen to be a five below there today. I said, why don't I buy the silly putty and I tried it on a grocery circular and it didn't pick up the ice. It doesn't work anymore because they printed a different ink..

Well, then I had Luke Combs, you took it. So here we go with my pick Cedric the entertainer named Bobby. You're in his name, but you're not gonna find a chance, and it could be ill again. Why not go Luke Bryan or Eric Church? Yeah, No, that's that's all smart stuff, but I think it's in safe. Cedric has rock as a comedian Oversight or Adam Sandler or I had Adam Sandler to two. But Raymundo, last pick. Not many people can do.
