James Brown - Get On The Good Foot

Happy Birthday to You, Godfather of Soul. Is it your left or right? Don't know, but "Get On The Good Foot" We continue with the Godfather of Soul and a 70's classic. He has been gone 4 1/2 years but he's not forgotten. Dontcha just love this label? How many times does it list his name...let's see... James Brown the CREATOR, produced by James Brown, arranged by James Brown, a James Brown production, not to mention his name as the artist underlined. Guess polydor thought we might overlook his name or something!

The underlining of Brown's name in the artist credit was attributable to the particular pressing plant that made that copy - PRC Recording Corp. in Richmond, IN. (It was that plant's S.O.P. for label copy in those days, underlining artists' names, which they did with other artists on the label's roster.) None of the other plants that pressed for Polydor at the time did this.
