James Brown's Golden Age

by Marc Zisman

Between 1967 and 1974, the Godfather turned soul into funk. Flanked by the grooviest musicians of the day, James Brown orchestrated a soundtrack to changes in American society. And everyone jumped aboard the Sex Machine!

In June 1973 James Brown lost his son Teddy in a car accident, but his production schedule didn't let up. And quality follows, like on the two soundtracks he signs off on with Fred Wesley in 1973: Black Caesar and Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off. It was also the year of the legendary and widely-sampled The Payback, followed in 1974 by a double album, Hell, his last big record. James's albums (not singles) were finally selling, but for some, he had started to lose it. In early 1974, Zaïre hosted the fight of the year between George Foreman and Mohamed Ali. To open proceedings, the organisers brought over B.B. King, the Staple Singers, the Spinners, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela and James Brown (the story of this episode is skilfully told in When We Were Kings)


King Heroin, Public Enemy #1, I Got A Bag Of My Own, James Brown had it all in hand: the demands and the conscience of the African American community, analysis of the social climate, king groove, each of his songs revolved around the same values, put together in all possible different configurations. But from 1975, the decline of Soul Brother Number One was clear. Studio sharks (David Sanborn, Billy Cobham and Joe Farrell) came to the rescue of a musician who had exhausted all possible avenues of funk. Most of all, now he was over 40, the Godfather had simply been overtaken by others who were modernising his commandments of funk: Clinton's madness, and the superproductions of Earth Wind & Fire, Kool & The Gang and other rising stars of funk-disco progressively pushed James's show into the background. Careening between the fantasies of the P-Funk galaxy and disco, hounded by money worries in both his record label and his tax affairs, James Brown almost completely disappeared from the media. His recordings didn't interest anyone any more and his tours couldn't rival the ones put on by Parliament/Funkadelic which were selling out stadiums. He even went to Japan in 1979, a sign that the end was in sight. In 1980, it was a different James Brown who appeared in Blues Brothers by John Landis. Happily for him, as hip-hop developed, a younger generation discovered the Godfather thanks to the mountains of samples heard on Public Enemy, Eric B. & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J and many other rappers of the time. In 1984, James even recorded with Afrika Bambaataa, to create the track Unity. A dramatic development came in 1985: the single Living in America, recorded for the Rocky IV soundtrack was a hit: it would be his best-selling release since Say It Loud ! Hoping to capitalise on this unexpected success, the Godfather returned to the studio and brought out a few weak albums... Between the late 1980s and the mid-1990s, Mr Dynamite sadly became a damp squib. He made tabloid headlines for drug problems, gun possession and various freak-outs... On 25 December 2006, he hit the front page all over the world once again: James Brown died on Christmas day at the age of 72.
