James Brown on Letterman (1982)

This performance was a kind of re-birth for James Brown.  He himself wasn’t expecting the band to be so tight.  If you watch his expressions during Sex Machine, he was shocked at the musicianship backing him.  He shut down the show that night.  And that bass is funky.  Enjoy!
