Format: Audio CD
"The Popcorn" credited to the unwieldy titled "JAMES BROWN directs and dances with the JAMES BROWN BAND" was released in 1969 as KING K1055. It contains 10 instrumental tracks arranged by Alfred "Pee Wee" Ellis, including a cover of "Cannonball" Adderley's "Why Am I Treated So Bad" written by Joe Zawinul! In reality it should be co-credited to saxophonist and arranger Alfred "Pee Wee" Ellis, who wrote or co-wrote over half the tracks, plays on all and arranged all as well. A terrific funky little album, it's par for the course for Brown, a combination of singles and some album-only tracks. A must for the James Brown collector! Here's the discographical info for those interested......

1. The Popcorn (KING 6240 May 1969 (#11 R&B, #30 Pop)**
2. Why Am I Treated So Bad**
3. In The Middle (Part 1) KING 6206 Nov. 1968 (as B-side of "Let's Unite The Whole World At Christmas")*
4. In The Middle (Part 2) KING 6214 Feb. 1969 (with "Part 1" credited to Alfred "Pee Wee" Ellis)*
5. Soul Pride (Part 1) (KING 6222 March 1969 (#33 R&B, #117 Pop)**
6. Soul Pride (Part 2) (KING 6222 March 1969 (#33 R&B, #117 Pop)**
7. A New Shift**
8. Sudsy**
9. The Chicken (KING 6240 May 1969 (#11 R&B, #30 Pop)**
10. The Chase**

This is a hidden gem that everybody should be listening too. It's James Brown with just funky rhythms and beats and no lyrics. I don't even know what James Brown does in this band. He's not singing and I don't know if he plays an instrument. Also, I heard that Jimi Hendrix played guitar in his band, but I can't tell if he's playing guitar on this album. My feeling is no. Anyway, this album is awesome and each groove is funkier than the last. Enjoy!

After listening to THE POPCORN in high definition, courtesy of Culture Factory USA, I am calling for a mass HD remastering and reissue of Mr. Brown's entire catalogue in this format! Sweet Charles Sherrell's bass (I believe that is he, not Tim Drummond) is not only heard but felt, sliding and bumping up against you like a slinky bar girl who's had too many rum and Cokes. There is freshly ground pepper in Clyde Stubblefield's drumwork, and you'll also feel the buzz coming from the bell of Maceo's horn when he leans on it. Musically, this rocking jazz-funk album is the laboratory where you can hear "Cold Sweat" evolving into the trickier polyrhythms of "Mother Popcorn" - but there are other tracks that just swing. No vocals, but it's arguably the best of JB's instrumental albums. Sonically, though, this is an A+ upgrade - tactile music given more attack.

I LOVE ME SOME JAMES! The thing that makes this album so unique is the fact it's just the James Brown Band doing what they do best. No vocals, all instrumentals. They get their time to shine and shine they do! This record pairs well with a stiff old fashion or Manhattan. Buy it and make your life a little funkier, you won't regret it.
