James Brown – Shhhh For A Little While (1968)

YouTube – No Amazon – iTunes – Discogs

From one of James Brown’s lesser known albums, I Got The Feelin’, ‘Shhhh…’ has the right mix of jazz, funk, Hammond and offbeat unfamiliarity for someone that has listened to JB a lot. And this one has not been sampled, as far as I know. (Although there is more than a passing resemblance to Herbie Hancock’s oft-touched ‘Bring Down The Birds’.) Anything goes on the dancefloor with this one, all helped by the late delivery of that line ‘Give me some respect now’, however strange the moves you are busting. Enjoy!
