SLEEVE NOTES:
“JAMES BROWN has emerged as one of the most popular blues sings of the modern record era. He has accomplished what only a few others have been able to do, – Ray Charles, Hank Ballard, Little Willie John – to go POP without having to change of lose his style. No longer classified as just a “blues singer”. JAMES BROWN in the past year has and such hits as TRY ME, THE BELLS, BEWILDERED.

This album is a variety of selections which best showcase the talents of this remarkable young man. He sings ballads, he wails the blues, he drives with the force that characterizes his particular style. For example, on I LOVE YOU, YES I DO, James brings back memories of the great Bull Moose Jackson who first made this song an all-time hit. On THE BELLS his emotions are so great and so strong that it completely overwhelms him. To pick out one phrase to describe JAMES BROWN is difficult. However, I would best put it “He sings with intense inner feeling and emotion: he lives his songs.”

JAMES BROWN hails from Macon, Georgia, where KING RECORDS first discovered him singing with a Gospel group. His first recording, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, was a sensation and firmly established JAMES BROWN AND THE FAMOUS FLAMES as substantial recording artists.

James is a qualified musician in his own right playing drums and organ. On a recent recording date, KING RECORDS cut The James Brown Band on Instrumentals with James playing organ.

JAMES BROWN is constantly on the road doing one-nighters and carries with him a complete band and show, THE FAMOUS FLAMES continue to back him on both personal and recording dates.”
