“Sings Raw Soul” by James Brown - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1967Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Released April 1967 (King K1016). This was all-new JB, with 2 tracks recompiled from 1964’s still-born “Out Of Sight” LP - “Till Then” and “Only You”. I’m guessing since King used Smash recordings there were handhakes behind the scenes! The 9 originals were in the stylish and modern soul-dance style, whilst the 3 crooner covers (Mills Brothers, Platters, Gladys Swarthout) were out of time, out of place and out of order!
