Bobby Byrd- Never Get Enough
In a reversal of common perception, Bobby Byrd is the front man on 1972's "Never Get Enough" while James Brown offers running commentary and harmonies. It's from the out-of-print The Best of Bobby Byrd. The collection is loaded with prime funk and soul issued under Byrd's name. Byrd first encountered Brown when the future Godfather of Soul was serving time in juvie. Byrd died yesterday.
This death march is exhausting. Willie Tee passed away Tuesday.
Here's my review of last night's Indigo Girls show.
