I'm Going To Make Furniture All Day And Listen To James Brown. I'd Wear My Red Satin JB's Smock But The Cape Keeps Getting Caught In The Lathe


Love the intergalactic Glenn Miller orchestra bit at the end.

Sounds like a plan on paper but at the end of the day they'll call you "Stumpy."

Well, the outfit has five-inch stack heels shoes, and no one makes disparaging remarks to a six-foot-seven woodworker in a satin jumpsuit. No. Bud. Dee.

Yeah, I HATE when that cape-in-the-lathe thing happens.

On the other hand, you COULD listen to some REAL funk - sans cape:

Scottish Funk (Scots do it better.):

Getting hired to join James Brown's band must of been like a combination of elation over getting in on the big time and dread over prospective boot camp conditioning drills. I mean nobody isn't in constant motion at all times. Even a guy who just stands there like the rhythm guitarist is never not doing a lot of something at every second.

I like the lime green jumpsuits on the ladies to stage right!!

Wasn't sure if that was Maceo on alto sax - the cape and hair threw me off. In the one good close up bit of him he backed off his mouthpiece to take a breath, just enough to see the white patch on top of the mouthpiece beak - a Brilhart "Tonalin" mouthpiece. That's ever been Maceo's setup, to this day.

It's amazing how much of a difference some good tunes can be to help you get your work on :). I like James Brown too haha.
