James Brown had invented The Funk earlier on, here, there and everywhere, but Cold sweatis thé song that marked & still marks the actual moment when all the pieces fell together. Here’s two excerpts from 1967 documenting this seminal song’s genesis, off 1996’s brilliant Foundations Of Funk – A Brand New Bag: 1964-19692cd on Chronicles (Polydor). I just looove that bàp heey wàp studio dialogue after the false start. The 1969 jazz remake has just been reissued on cd via the less-than-midpriceThe Soul Brother’s Jazzcd (2010, Verve Jazz Club / Legends, Universal Germany). It was recorded between 1968-12 and 1969-03 for the Gettin’ Down To Itlp on King.
