We’re starting off the first day of Summer with some heat from The Grits out of the UK. They have been releasing a song a week for a minute, and I thought this week’s release was fitting. Their homage to the Godfather of Soul, The Minister of the New New Super Heavy Funk, Mr. Please Please Me, The Godfather of Soul, Soul Brother Number One, The Hardest Working Man in Show Business, Mr. Dynamite aka James Brown is a great way to kick off the hottest season of the year. With hard hitting drums and a some JBesque horns all you have to do is make a sound. It doesn’t matter what sound it is, as long as it sounds like James Brown. Even after all these years, people are still trying to emulate JB. And why not? His sound was classic, and it will never be duplicated. The Grits, however, do a great job of relaying the JB Funk message to the masses. Look for this one in your local record shop and when you get it, play it loud!
