To honor the passing of James Brown one year ago on Christmas Day, I decided to mess around with my GarageBand software and do a J.B. memorial mix.
Then I decided: Let’s make this interesting.
So here’s a contest. In my 6-minute J.B. memorial mix, there are pieces from eight different tracks by James Brown or his band. The first person to name all eight tracks will win a prize.
That prize is a double-CD called “Funky Good Time: The Anthology” by the J.B.’s (Mr. Brown’s backing band). The J.B.’s featured at various times Maceo Parker, Bootsy Collins, Fred Wesley and “Pee Wee” Ellis. This is ’70s funk at its finest.
Put your answers in the comments section. Guess as many times as you like. What I need are eight correct song titles.
Now, to hear the 6-minute mix, click here.
UPDATE (12/26/07): We have a winner. Andre Alexander identified all eight tracks in the comments section of my Vox blog. Here they are:
“The Funky Side of Town”
“Make It Funky”
“It’s the J.B.’s Monaurail”
“Don’t Tell It”
“Talkin’ Loud and Sayin’ Nothing”
“Hot Pants Road”
