You've certainly heard this did you. Did you did you discern the same sort of four? They talk about Steve and shaft in Fred Sanford and Marilyn Monroe like that. You're yeah but I'm not searched. You're out would describe it as four different personalities in pick a number three four five who knows because the so-called personalities were really just about his moods and don't we all have mood swing says much more pronounced in this moods might depend on the music that day or didn't make it might depend on how the show went last night. It might just depend on how he felt when he woke up morning might depend on something that none of us will ever know. That was just purely personal and secret to him. That would motivate a mood. Because you know yeah there was there was I mean you was a comedian. He was hysterically. Funny you know this. He had a great sense of humor. Dripping with sarcasm but funny He could be extremely generous and supportive insensitive. He could also be extremely hard edged and rude and I think the difference was not so much. I don't think it was so much about personalities it's a answer personalities. I think it really was just that he was the kind of person.

This pandemic requires you to have a level of compassion that I don't believe that white people in America have ever had right you can find. Democracy is wherever podcast or streamed all right back to Toray show. There's a moment in the James Brown movie right where Chadwick Bozeman plays James Before Black Panther and this moment stands out to me where he's he's rehearsing the band and he saying like you know what is a Horn. It's ultimately drum. What is this ultimately address All the instruments are ultimately drums. Is that the way that he looked at it. Yes yes yeah when you start looking at and his so-called funk era starting in sixteen let's say sixty seven with called sweat. It was very much of focus on. I mean all the parts were progressive by nature and with the horns. It was never something just mellow. It was like the intonation. The attack of the horn section had to precursor. It had to be bang so when new horns committed to play their part and it might be a simple riff but instead a DA. Which is what you might hear on Stax volt record or a motown record. And that's not meant to put down their horn players. They had great horn players. Just two different approach. But with Brown with dot data it had to be progressive and he realized that they're also carried with it and excitement level to translate it to the state so it was very much like. When he was making her record he was already visualizing. How will this song work onstage? How rides the emotion that the audience? What's going to take the show to the next level? It was all in the same and he said there's a great story in this early on in James's career. He said you know like you know. In small towns that they didn't have television always know what the artists looked like. And you talk about a Little Richard. Show where a little Richard couldn't do the GIG young James before he was way before he's a star he get up and be little. Richard was little every that exactly this great. Well I I talk in the book a little bit about that because the book is in just about James Brown like to think that somebody who's just in black music of sixties in general could find some Stephan book that would be worth their while even if they're not a James Brown fan and one of those sections is talking about how. How common sadly so common. That was that kind of fake artists. There was a promoter I was I went to junior high high school in Richmond. Virginia were got into radio which led to meeting James Brown but there was a a pretty local soul music scene in in the Richmond area. Major Harris came out at the air couple of the gamble. Frighteners came up to dear Watson came with the all. These guys played in local groups in Richmond. During the time I was there and to make a long story short there were a couple of local promoters that would take some of the local groups that just played local clubs in would would get us paint on the bus. Drifters or the Manhattan or whatever. Group was hot at that time. Take this group one of the club's enrichment throw them in the sin. Take him out to the boondocks somewhere in western Virginia or West Virginia or even parts of Maryland. The Carolinas and and they would perform and the drifters Manhattan's in do this like several times a year. It was mind blowing to me. But it's like the people didn't no no no no no. It was very little television. The black artists weren't getting on TV at all all it. If you were really really lucky get onto Clark. And if you're super lucky you got on it Sullivan. Maybe once but that was it for TV. And if you didn't have jet magazine you had no idea what they look like right particularly if you lived in Boondocks I mean if you lived in Richmond. That's a real city. Got Brits Monette from a newspaper out doctor to get away with daddy enrichment but you can small towns Ranville. Virginia Chesterfield Agenda. Who'd Slant County Virginia works? I mean a lot of this book is about you being a tour manager and moving with James Brown from city to city year after year for those of us who never got to see him perform on stage. I think I saw perform once on stage later in his life but what was what made him so great on the stage he just had knack of knowing what would excite annoyance. I mean obviously at a skill set. That's a no brainer. It was miraculous dancer. Who again did did things that nobody else was doing or could do. It was the Michael Jackson his era. When came to footwork he had elements of the the what tap dancers step brothers in you know people like that that he had seen as a kid so he had some of that but he also had his own imagination and skill set and the fact is he was just really that simple but he also everything. He did was geared to rousing audience to get houses. We say to get approval to get kids to jump up and scream in the same way. Michael Jackson would moonwalk in house down. James Brown moved the mashed potatoes in the house down and be sliding across the stage on a leg up in the air. And you know who else was doing? That I mean Otis. Redding couldn't dance. Great Singer made fabulous records. But you know it was a different onstage. God Love Sam. Cooke of the the hand looks so good. He didn't do anything. Jackie Wilson would get underground. Take your shirt off. Girls take the rest of his clothes off and will be the third song of his said. And that's all he had to say. Everybody had their way of doing but James Wolves like. I'm not to take cloth on Jackie. Wilson. I'M NOT AS PRETTY AS SAM. Cook so I can't just sit there and you know in pose. And he just had a headed nate sense of what would work. And I think it probably goes back to the fact that this was a guy as seventh grade dropout in heavily. Jim Crow Augusta Georgia from a broken family. His mother left him when he was what eight nine years old. His father dumped him a fun. An aunt who was who ran a brothel and that's where he was raised and he used to go out in the streets of Augusta and entertain the soldiers from Fort Gordon. Tap dancing her or what they used to call. Buck dancing whatever the hell it was he was doing so we already had it in education. On what am I gonNa do with Matt Feet? That makes these soldiers throwing extra buck in the CAN. He just had sensible what works. And you know as he became more sophisticated. Detainment hundred really work estates. He just took that attitude with him. So everything was designed toward arousing an audience and he always said if leaves the stage..

"Stubblefield Brunettes the funky Drummer John. Jabo starks Melvin Parker. He had a encyclopedia of great drummers. What's important recognized none of which played the same? I mean each one had distinctive style. If you the least bit James Brown savvy you could put a new James Brown record in ten seconds. Identify which of the drummer is. It's on that track just because they were so stylistically unique and all those guys combined into were just thinking. What do we do with this music? So it's not boring. It's not derivative and they were all of the same attitude and in James was the mastermind. He was the chemist and he was just like. We're going to do stuff that nobody else is doing. And I think it was a case I think the driving factor was he was smart enough to realize that recording artists come and go those that are associated with a styler a trend go quicker when trend is which is that. The artist is sill. If he was going to be the king of soul he was going to make himself so unique. That anybody who wanted sole had to go to James Brown and wherever soul music was going to go he was going to be the one to take it or if he fell behind he was going to be the one to catch up and move forward. He just refused to sound like anybody else or be influenced by anybody else in breeze influenced by the people behind them and one of the talk about is when Busey Collins comes into the band pray and boots. He's a kid when he brings him in but he can clearly recognize this guy's a monster when he brings him in the then the band and the sound changes again sure. Yeah no he was. The James Brown bans were very important. They weren't just backup musicians because they defined whatever stoutly was doing at any given time was really defined by the Group of musicians he had in his genius was not so much as an instrumentalist. I mean he could play organ but he was no threat to Jimmy Smith. He could play drums. He thought but all drummers made fun of behind his back but he had this genius of recognizing the strengths of all the musicians in the band and he would write in rindge music geared to their strengths and stay away from their weaknesses and the perfect illustration has that is how when the pains changed as you mentioned when Buzi Collins and his brother new bunch of young guys. These became the band. In March of nineteen seventy. There was a popular as well known amongst James Brown fans at upheaval in his famous sixties band. Macy's park repeat we L. as Jimmy Nolan. Clyde stubblefield leads guidance and they gave an ultimatum about salaries and working conditions and so on and so on he called their bluff and basically let them go and brought in St Young Group of untrained kids from Cincinnati which included Buzi Collins. Now the sixties being was known for their horn ribs. They were innovative. They were Great Horn player. So they're intonation and everything. What's like way above in did they were all guys who had jazz pedigrees and credit for you actually were not to play with people. Count Basie and so on and Sarah Vaughan and they were guys wanted to be jazz musicians in. Have the skill sets but here comes Buzi Collins where you've got a great rhythm section. Buzi and his brother. Catfish on Guitar. But you've got some burr young trained bar band level horn-players so brown senses that and he's like okay. You know for all these years. My horns were a significant part of my records. While these guys aren't gonNA cut the APP. I can't beat that old horn section. So let's focus on rhythm section so the first record he makes the new band is sex machine. Instead of a Mesa Parker's saxophone break keyboard break in the basin. The Guitar Mixed up higher in the usually were James. Records and Porn. Parts are so forgettable. You don't even miss him a just a case of something and if you listen to his records all the way back to when he first started recording with his own musicians in the late fifties when he had his first real wrote been. The wreckers were always geared to the strengths of that group of musicians and that that really was his genius in recognizing and knowing how to stay away from their weaknesses. And just make saying I rape if you love. Toray show and you miss.

Jane's Eighteen Ninety two and I'm back nineteen ninety eight while none of these records could be considered as important as his earlier work and did little to increase his popularity. His classic catalog became more popular in the American mainstream.

"Found that you build upon that will set the stage for success or the lack thereof later in life because everybody including adults are still focus with the mobile devices that we have even when people go out to dinner to fellowship. You look around a restaurant in look at how many adults are so engrossed with cell phones and tablets right there and we don't have the same quality quality of Socialization and interaction. As we did back in the day I think also the self officiating negotiate you to compromise. Is You learned all that in early age. 'cause there wasn't an up there to do it for you to figure out what the strike zone was. How ghost runners worked? Well Yeah and you had to figure out who the leaders were. The leaders were the ones who picked the teams And then like the young kids had to keep up the older kids to play within the rules and and the rules were all set with you know within the group every game was a different game. If you only had three people playing baseball on the corner you know you couldn't cover every part of the field so you've got homerun Derby there's always new rules those and those things. I missed so much there is no question about it when I think about my mother and father. God bless them. They I look to say that they were high school graduates but they have PhD's in determination they want us the five of us. I'm the oldest of five I four boys and one girl They wanted us to have a better quality of life than what they had grown up but I have immense respect and admiration for what they did. I mean five of us. My father was a security guard of prison working working at a local. Oh prison and gus would remember that from his days in Washington a Lurton Krizan Argentine DC. He also drove a taxi cab but during the holidays he also took on a third job as a handyman helper. If you will go out at the Reagan National Airport worked in Asia's rental car and doing whatever needed to be done all so my mother could stay home because she always wanted to be an excellent homemaker and she was so we called her. The Sergeant Bob was only five five forty. Carry a big stick and we affectionately called her. The the sergeant we need to not mess around with hopper. You said something. It was Gospel but that was the environment that we grew up in with all kinds of respect. Hey Dave there are people in our neighborhood and we you. We've just consider our neighborhood was a universe That four or five six seven block area but all of the adults apparent in the neighborhood. We knew them by Mr Mrs. We knew there by MR and Mrs Smith we never called them by their first name. It was just a matter respect the way we were raised. And whenever we you said Mrs Smith on Farragut everybody knew who we were talking about so that sense of community and even when we hear the expression that it takes a village to raise a a child if you will that will certainly ed because we had such respect if we were to three blocks away plane. An adult told us something that we were doing wrong or to. You know to straighten up enact right. We did because there wasn't that level of respect for authority right so then going on to high school you go into ninth grade. It's a big transition in for everyone and I don't know it doesn't matter if you're the star athlete or or or just a person who's not even playing sports but it's a big transition so tell me a little bit about that transition. Few you in how growing up in your neighborhood really helped with that. Well I like to think again. Maybe Co telling on that point that I was making about respect for authority I went to a public elementary school and then graduated from there and went to a middle school called junior high school. Then In the seventh and eighth grade but I was I have an interest in basketball. Could not play a lick but the coach. They kept me on the team simply because he said that was a good listener. Coach Don Fugel and gusting they. They had a lot of talent. Kings through that particular Middle School Adrian. Dantley who went onto I believe a fourteen year career in the NBA and a hall of Famer Kermit Washington. Who played played with the Los Angeles Lakers in professional basketball at such A? We had a lot of great talent coming through of their then but when Morgan Rootin- to the high school coach saw me playing. Cyo Baseball In the play offs and he saw me and I had a great postseason hitting home runs. He interested me and coming. Let me to demand the plate. Which of course was the Mecca during my time? L. Is an athletic and academic success in rigor if you will and when I went to Matha so it was a novel experience. Hey fellas five hundred dollars. A year was the tuition and we thought that was all all the money in the world. That my folks sacrificed to put me through school. Ed Demands of and of course change in classes That was a whole new experience appearance. One had to be responsible for their time of but again the respect for authority was was was ingrained in us so that art. That transition was easy easy in terms of dealing with the various teachers. But here's one big lesson that came out of high school and it showed how serious my mom and dad were about the the kids doing well academically because they felt that foundation stone would be the proper foundation for success in a game of life. I was blessed to make the basketball team as it might create our play. JV and I wrote a bench on the Varsity team. And this isn't the math. I mean one of the nation's our house and one day something happened to practice ran late. You guys heard me reference being home when the street right lights came right now. I was back home by the time the street lights came on my mother. Got On the phone and call apple and assistant. Coach picked up the phone and And she said this is a Mrs Brown. My son James Brown there and the assistant coach said yes. Ma'am he's floor with coach Wootton in basketball practice. She said well M- asked me to coach and he said well I can't disturb him right now. He's in practice. My mother said okay. Well here's the deal if my son is at home within the next Next hour that that will be his last basketball practice. Because academic success is first and foremost and boy he told coast coach called practice off in ten minutes. It's unusual that lay called. My mother said Mrs Brown. You're absolutely correct. And we know what is first and foremost here. This won't happen again. The coach Wilton was awesome because the priorities that he had all of us who play for him and he was also a history teacher. Superb teacher superb teacher which is why he enjoyed so much success athletically and Gussie also back in time coach the football team until they hired another coach but he told oldest priorities that we had to have which were consistent with those in my family was that God had a first family had to be second school was third and then your sport football or basketball coach and I remember many years later. Get an opportunity to go an interview coach for for sixty minutes sports when we had that here. CBS Why were those priorities. So important because to a player today today over forty some odd years and he coach. We all have those priorities in grave and he said I felt that if I had young men who I believe in and adapted those priorities as their own. I was working with championship caliber people and we would enjoy more success than failure. Your isn't that amazing. No that is really amazing. Because I think there's a lot of guys in professional sports today that are missing a lot of that uh-huh and I hear you loud and clear. I like to do or as many years as I have been blessed to do this playing and calling a game the football day where gus has suffered got were football than our ever no but I worked hard to just be a good broadcaster broadcaster and understand the basics. I went to work with one of his bosses at Washington and then Bobby Mitchell the hall of famers who was basically walk me through all the fun dimensions of football and so that I could call this work because my boss here at CBS. When they brought me on board I it came on as an extra announcer during the basketball season during college hoops and then idea professional whoops because that's how broke into it in Washington? DC as as an announcer for first bt doing black college basketball and then with With a CBS as extra announcer But I was doing. The Washington did name Bullets Games. So I did all of that. So it's become well rounded in the sport but that's what again I had to lay that foundation so I got to know a lot of these professionals at gus is talking about and I'm telling you many of these guys come from good family homes but the challenge is when you get around the number of successful athletes start making money and you start being a low into a sense of complacency by all the attention that you're getting one. One may stray from foundational principles taught in their home and the school or Internet search and by neighborhood adults. And that's when you start to the head down the wrong road and those things can really wreak havoc and indeed a take you also in the wrong rails off the rails for every day so I tend the focus in all that I've been doing on characters of integrity and character. Light Gusts Right. Those are the stories that I looked at more to publicizing visiting give visibility to because even though my friend Charles Barkley I understood what the end of the hall of Famer was saying. That athletes should not karol bottles. That might be true. Parents should be an other strong character and integrity and the community but the fact of the matter is de facto. Anybody who is highly visible in the world of scores is a role model whether they want to be or not. Which is why I think thank you understand that and model carry yourself properly? Then you're impact in a whole generation in a positive way. I agree I totally agree. James skipping back to when did you know you're going to be possibly a college basketball player. I mean you're playing with a lot. The guys that probably went on to play college and someone that went on. Play the pros did you. You're on JV freshman. When did you crack the starting lineup while It was a result. I'm sure and gus as an ex pro can relate to this. It was having the attitude day that you should always be in the the process of learning to never ever get complacent Morgan. wootten use this fundamental an athletic fundamental that had to be mastered as an analogy. He said when you're going up for a junk shot.
"james brown" Discussed on Huddle Up with Gus
"Hey thanks for joining us. Another episode of huddle up with Gus. I'm here with my good friend. Dave and Dave today I am so excited did to bring in somebody that I've known for a while and have followed and is just been involved in the NFL. For as long as I can remember. We have some old mutual friends from way back in the day and he's just an outstanding person and outstanding human being and if you want to model yourself after anybody it should you should model yourself after James Brown That's a tall order. But I agree with you. Well he is talking about the bus especially if we show some of yeah right right. Yeah some all types so joining us today on how to up with Gus James Brown. Thank you for being with us. And it's a pleasure. Well I can. It definitely share with you on day. If I am too dark the blush with that intro but I thank you guys so much and quite frankly as I was sharing with Dave before we went on air a gust. It will be right back at you because when you play one of the things that I actually talked about name Association it's it's character it's integrity it's consistency and you've been that way all along. As a matter of fact I think actually one of our friends when you were playing in Washington A. J. Northbound Who recently passed away but a big time executive who went on to become a serial entrepreneur? And he doesn't let many people into his inner circle. But you were one of those guys so thank you guys. Were having me on board. Now we appreciate join and and it's sad that he did pass but he was one of our mutual friends in getting know him and his wife and it was a pretty interesting story back there when I was living in Northern Virginia it could very close to him. And you know a lot of good stories coming back and forth between us about J. B. that's for sure and I know. He had a from understand he had had a Lotta influence in your life as well. Hey Gust end to be really clear about it. The Path was cleared for me to move into what I didn't realize was a passion to move into broadcasting because of Jay Maas bound. He was a senior executive with Xerox Corporation. which where I landed after not getting an opportunity you know I did have the opportunity? I didn't capitalize fully on my opportunity at the professional level. That will like you did mindless basketball. So when I got cut by the Atlanta Hawks and came back home Jay Nussbaum who was quite a football player himself way back the day at University of Maryland and he went after a number of athletes because he felt they would make good marketing people who knew how pick themselves up off the the basketball floor on football turf and battle forward and not let a disappointment keep them down and he was quite successful with that and I was humbled and certainly very thankful to be a part of his team where he knew that I had an interest in broadcasting. He lay prepare for me until I could do it as long as I brought. My numbers scandal Gandak a sales executive or sales manager so it was always about making certain I met the mark and he gave me the opportunity that led to how long I've been in the business. Now it's always about sales right dumping no matter what profession you're n you're absolutely correct. It is all about sales. Because you're selling yourself up a service or product or what have you. It really is fundamentally about sales. You know we're trying to dave in are trying to figure that about podcasting very part of your day. I appreciate you guys bearing Whitby as I was trying to figure out how to even get on late on millennials. It'll be out. Yeah so so. Let's go back to when you were growing up in D. C.

That played in Washington Auto Griffith Stadium before you were born. Guzman dumb So I played. Cyo Baseball and was doing well. As a matter of fact we got to the playoffs. We were applying in high school basketball coach. Who obviously has in the basketball hall of fame? Morgan wooten of Damalf Catholic Highschool Fair and he came out to watch one of our postseason games but he was more interested in this off of multiple sports star. A blonde hair at your on are being by the name of Steve. Garrett and Steve Garrett is the reason that I no longer numberplate baseball because fellows standing in Bosco on a practice one day and he had a wicked array of pitches and he threw. What I knew was curveball? And of course it takes only mantles second to get to the plate. But here's what happened. I'm standing in the batter's box and I'm saying there's a Kerber okay. You know what is late breaking but I know it will break kirpu breaking. Oh my God is on the way and I dropped down to the dirt and last nanosecond if broke across the plate or strike and I knew baseball was the end of the at that point time and it was basketball after that was was so as baseball with the first team sport or you played Yes sir. That was the first team sport. Unlike would probably elementary school. Kids would say that kickball was probably the first team scored but but yet did they buy. It was baseball. There was a first team sport and we had some very civic minded actively engaged parents in the neighborhood who taught auto the right way to be teammates of what a good teammate was all about taught us fundamentals of the sport and it really carried over. As I'm sure you both know having Blake sports it carried over into the game of white recognizing that in the game of life is all about being a team player really is someone successful on his or her own and clearly in the work environment. It's all about being on a team as well and and recognizing that our job is to encourage our teammates If you will reciting the mantra of bubble bell check the New England Patriots Fan to do your a job but to pick up the slack where you see you can't and to keep each other encourage so those are some of the things that the world is sports teams or it's especially changes you. Well one of the things that Dave and I have found with all of our guests that we've interviewed you know over probably thirty now Everybody talks about when they were growing up their neighborhoods. How they used to go outside and play they would play? As Dave's favorite sport was wiffle ball and our whatever it was kicked ball like you mentioned and you get all the neighborhood kids and today. It's so different. We don't see that anymore. I mean I I love I mean you got up dance get out of the house come back at dinner then. Don't come back until the whistle blows. That was my that was my childhood. Go play any game you want. There were no parents telling you what to do. You had to figure it out you had to make all the rules up and I think a lot of that is missed today in society. How do you feel about that Jane? Hey Gus you know even as you were counting that There was a real longing feeling in our heart. For those times again you're absolutely correct gusts are parents would let us go. Probably about two to three blocks away from the house. We didn't have any adult chaperones a huge the yield a two three blocks away from our home and we will get out there and we play all kinds of games whether it was hide and seek whether it was K.. All baseball whistled or whatever you name it. And we had a great time. And you talked about off the parents indicating when to come back. The Cue for us is when we saw the streetlights come on. We knew back home to get in the house. How much do we long for those times when clearly in today's environment sadly cannot do that because of the way things turned so south in terms of you know kidnapings alike and certainly? I don't WanNa make this very Marlin But we all understand that we long for those times now. There are many people who might live in rural areas or semi rural areas. Might still be able to enjoy this. But I long-forgotten I missed that. And that certainly defy the neighborhood and friendships. That one still has till today a bonded. It solidified by that kind of experience. Yes Sir will you know. Gosh you know my neighborhood. There's about fifteen kids all within eight years injury injury and I don't even know if they've ever met like my my my kids play sports teams but none none of the kids intermingle like we used to intermingle will run around and and I spoke to a lady the other day James and she was telling me that her kids sometimes they go out. Sometimes they don't but they have a neighbor. He took his backyard hard and he made it into a sports Mecca. He said he put a basketball court and he put he put like nets up whatever we want and he has four boys and he makes his sons. Go Out and get the neighborhood. Kids come over to their house and place at all. I wanted to do them to go outside. And that's one of the only people I've ever heard be able to do that. You know what how awesome is that when we extrapolate from that experience to get prepared for the game of life what that teaches teaches you in the kind of experience as you said you figure it out on your own you have to realize that one cat B sawfish and hall ball or the Action Action that it truly engages you a team framework in working with the kids want. You're getting the exercise in because of that age. You WanNA certainly be able to burn on offense energy. Many schools in many major metropolitan areas don't have extracurricular activities that are physically injured. Or even phys ed which of course was a staple part of the school experience of elementary on up so kudos to that neighbor for doing that. And I'm telling you those friendships unshipped. Those early experiences are foundational stones upon which you build that will serve you well in the game of life. I mean again to that. A book What's it called everything needed to learn? I learned in kindergarten. The first story going.

"James Brown appreciation month here on hold the funk. We just heard maybe my favorite song ever by the godfather. That was talking loud and saying nothing like a dull knife, the just ain't cut. You're talking loud and say nothing man come on. He's a poet. Yeah. And that was actually the original from from what I've. Read. That's supposedly the original version. That was far more rock and roll or ent than the version that was finally released. We're hearing this cut off of the James Brown's funky people part three which was the third at us. In a series of releases highlighting James Brown's. Label that he put put together people, Lynn Collins and. And Fred Wesley, and the j bees they all recorded on it. But yeah, that was supposedly the original mix of it. And I guess. For whatever reason, I don't know the exact story. But for whatever reason, they really toned down the rock elements and accentuated, the the soul funk Rb elements and. Anyways. Whatever mix it is. I'm in because I love that tune before that before talking loud, we heard you got to have a mother for me, which is again, one of my favorite tunes, and the band is just working at man like the drum interplay. I don't know if you remember back that far, but man, the drivers are killing it last good guitar work to probably should've checked into who was playing all that stuff. But you know, sometimes you do and sometimes you don't. But let's see I'm looking now. Trying to figure out it's just got a Nate Jones on drums. This was from January thirteenth nineteen sixty nine. What it was recorded? And actually we're going to we're going to wrap the show up with track. From the same date is a matter of fact, so. Yeah. Sometimes it's hard to tell especially with James Brown's projects. Sometimes you know, he would. Play a show. And then instead of the guys getting the night off after the show. He's like take to the studio. You know what I'm saying? Like, he was a well-known taskmaster. And for that reason, I'll appetizers, you know, guys would come and go and come back, and you know, whatever, but. Also because he recorded so frequently in so many different studios. It can be a little hard to piece together who played on what all the time. So it's possible. Maybe other than Nate Jones. There was somebody else playing the drum kit there in any case that was you got to have a mother for me. What a great before that we heard I've got money part one. James is saying, hey, I got money girl. But ain't got no love pretty sad before that we heard problems, which is a nice seventies funk track. And before that we heard it's a man's man's man's world. But it wouldn't be nothing y'all. Okay. So we're gonna get back into we're quickly running nap time here. I wanna play you at least this track. And then I'll be right back. This is the night train, y'all. All right, y'all..
