“JAMES BROWN is a concept, a vibration, a dance,” he told us. “It’s not me, the man. JAMES BROWN is a freedom I created for humanity.”

But talking to a crowd stretched at his feet in the late 1960s, James Brown reassured them: “If you ain’t got enough soul, let me know. I’ll loan you some! Huh! I got enough soul to burn.”
