Before Cold sweat(King 1967) the foundations of funk had been laid in several other songs and jam sessions, most notably “Papa’s got a brand new bag” (King 1965). Here’s the rare three part version, as released via the “Mr. Dynamite” disc of the “Star Time” 4cd box (Polydor 1991). The blistering 1967 live version off “Live At The Latin Casino: Star Time!” has just been reissued on the “Live At The Garden: Expanded Edition” 2cd (Hip-o-Select 2009), as described in http://uzine.posterous.com/now-that-is-intense … while the jazz version, with its amazing use of an orchestra, was recorded 1969-11-10 + 1969-11-11 for the “Soul On Top” lp on King. It can equally be found on “The Soul Brother’s Jazz” – as described in http://uzine.posterous.com/jazz-brown-0 … Do check the finale of both the live and the jazz versions!
