Bobby Byrd – I Know You Got Soul (1971)

Bobby Byrd

In the mid-1980s, no one’s back catalogue was having more of an influence on fashion than the work of James Brown’s stable. This culminated in the purest of compliments from Eric B and Rakim when they heavily sampled Bobby Byrd for their single ‘I Know You Got Soul’. Byrd had recorded the song with James Brown’s band The J.B.’s. and J.B. himself subsequently produced it as a single in 1971. It still sounded fresh in 1987. It still sounds sick in 2013. Have a good weekend.
