better butter that popcorn mumsy

What a performance! Apart from this utterly fantastic tv version of Mother popcorn“, here’s the rather rare long version (parts 1 ànd 2) too … as funkified by James Brown (and Maceo and Fred and Pee Wee and Clyde and Sweet Charles and …) in 1969 – the same year Gershon Kingsley concocted his “Popcorn” original … though as you can read in Douglas Wolk‘s mother of an article here, Mr. JB seems to have been the original architect of popcornitude. (Check out what Wolk means by “the single greatest instant in the history of recorded sound” at 4’15” into what is indeed “one of the most monstrously funky records ever made”.)

Heh hèh … àll this just to remind y’all of that other Popcorn event this Saturday 2010-03-13!
