James BROWN – Thinking About LITTLE WILLIE JOHN and Few Nice Things 1968

James BROWN – Thinking About LITTLE WILLIE JOHN and Few Nice Things 1968
King S 1030

Blues

Nice rather than great and not a funk album by any means but if you want to hear James rediscover his roots and sing this is for you.
By M. Hoffman.

This is one of James Brown’s finest moments among many fine moments, in a tribute to the great Little Willie John, who died mysteriously in a Walla Walla prison in 1968. The first six songs feature James as a pure torch singer, and the man could sing. A unique performance, it’s a shame that this recording is not currently in release. The second six songs (side B of the LP) are instrumentals featuring James on organ. Would love to know the lineup of this band.
