Announcing Now-Again’s official 2019 Record Store Day releases. Link in bio for more info. In a sentence - James Brown does psych-rock at the turn of 1970. . . ‘Sho is Funky Down Here’ and ‘The Grodeck Whipperjenny’ are a pair of albums that are the result of an unlikely but highly productive musical relationship between James Brown, a superstar at the creative and commercial peaks of his long career, and David Matthews, a then young arranger-musician whose limited professional experience had little or nothing to do with the funk and soul of his collaborator. James Brown – Sho Is Funky Down Here James Brown’s psychedelic album, created by his then-bandleader David Matthews, and issued at the same time as Matthews’ classic ‘The Grodeck Whipperjenny.’ Underground, fuzzy, rambling psych-funk. The genesis of Brown’s “Talking Loud And Saying Nothing,” a 1990s hip hop sample staple, informing A Tribe Called Quest, Large Professor, Brand Nubian and others. . David Matthews - The Grodeck Whipperjenny A psychedelic classic, created by James Brown’s bandleader David Matthews, the first album issued on Brown’s famed People imprint. As progressive as it is funky, this album was issued in tandem with another Matthews project issued under Brown’s name – ‘Sho Is Funky Down Here.’ One of the deepest albums in the Brown catalog, its story is finally told. . Both albums were lacquered directly from the original master tapes at Capitol Studios. This is the first official reissue of both of these rare titles. Each album contains an extensive booklet with full annotation, liner notes by Brown historian Alan Leeds and never-before-published photos.
