Description

James Brown - Papa's Got A Brand New Bag (From "Live At Montreux 1981" DVD)

James Brown was a hugely influential figure in black American music. He was a driving force in the development of soul music in the early sixties, and funk in the early seventies. He has had more R 'n' B hits in the US than any other artist and has charted singles in countries around the world. Here he is captured at his very best, taken from the Eagle Vision DVD "Live at Montreux".

"Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" is a song written and recorded by James Brown.[1] Released as a two-part single in 1965, it was Brown's first song to reach the Billboard Hot 100 Top Ten, peaking at number eight, and was a number-one R&B hit, topping the charts for eight weeks. It won Brown his first Grammy Award, for Best Rhythm & Blues Recording.

Consolidating the rhythmic innovations of earlier James Brown recordings such as "I've Got Money" and "Out of Sight", "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" is considered seminal in the emergence of funk music as a distinct style. As Brown sings the praises of an old man brave enough to get out on the dance floor of a nightclub ("brand new bag" meaning new interest, taste, or way of doing something), his band provides a horn-heavy backdrop with a prominent rhythm and an electric guitar riff for a hook. Both singer and musicians place overwhelming emphasis on the first beat of each measure ("on the One"). The song is Brown's first recording to feature Jimmy Nolen on guitar.
