JAMES BROWN - Zaire, Africa 1974

Looks like this legendary show, in which Soul Bro #1 played warm-up act to The Rumble in the Jungle, will finally being seeing the light of day soon in some form, courtesy of an upcoming doc entitled Soul Power, sort of a belated musical twin to the Oscar-winning Ali doc When We Were Kings.

Here's to that! It's most bizarre that this professionally recorded and filmed super-show has remained a bootleg for almost 35 years. Here we have JB and his juilant JB's in peak power. Dig or die, sisters and misters!
