Hardest Working Man – How James Brown Saved The Soul Of America

Book (Item 608569) Gotham, 1965/2008 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.60 22

One of the harder-hitting books we've ever seen on James Brown – an account of his famous Boston performance on April 5, 1968 – the night after Martin Luther King was assassinated – but one that also looks at Brown's lasting impact on race in America as well! We appreciate author James Sullivan's approach here, as it gets right past some of the over-told stories from Brown's early days – and jumps right in to the time when The Godfather was really starting to get funky, and shake things up around the country in the process. Book includes a foreword by Chuck D, some black and white photos, and is 244 pages, paperback.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
