James Brown RIP

I would never have thought that my first post back after Christmas would be a RIP to James Brown. The Godfather of Soul departed this world early on Christmas day, a rather fitting time for a man whose larger-than-life character was so prominent across the music world for so long. My only regret was that I never got to see him live, strutting his funky stuff, which he always seemed to do so amazingly well for a man of his age. I guess I thought there would always be another chance. Even as recently as October he played in London at the BBC Electric Proms. I was in Scotland at the time. Maybe that's a new year's resolution for me - to see as many of these old living legends as possible before it's too late. But enough about me. I don't intend to do a big obituary here. Other people have done that at more length and more eloquently. And there will be loads more. I just want to say thanks for all the brilliant music James, and rest in peace.

Here's a famous, and a slightly less-famous song from the Godfather.

(Yes, that is the Hank Williams song - it's off a great compilation called Dirty Laundry: The Soul of Black Country. Photo from the NY Times.)
