Music For A Hot Thursday Afternoon

The Poets feat. James Brown: Devil's Den (King, 1963)
When I say featuring, I mean are James Brown. James rounded up the band, taught them the tune (can't have taken long, any band that couldn't follow this simple, instrumental vamp of sleazy wonderousness is no band at all), played the organ, provided a couple of chunks heavy screamology (as well as, right at the end, saying, apropos of nothing, "This is nothing but soul!" and "Do anything you wanna do") and even paid them. Anyway, this is a tremendous record, as is this which is where I, um, borrowed it from.
