[DOWNLOAD] James Brown in Concert from NPR

Posted: Updated:

From NPR's Live Concert 12/28/2006 show, "James Brown in Concert:"
"The Godfather of Soul reaches into his vast catalog of hit songs for a night of music, recorded live from the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C."

The Hardest Working Man in Show Business is backed by the Soul Generals, who play so crazy tight it make a guy weep for the state of music made by anybody else (except whatever collection of virtuosos Prince has going at the moment).

Download it here. MP3, 87MB. 90+ minutes of soul so funky you won't believe you got it from NPR.

And be extra nice to Henry Rollins today. I bet nobody loved Mr. Please, Please, Please harder.
