"The Payback" by James Brown

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing once more the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, the Godfather of Soul, Mr. Dynamite himself, James motherfucking Brown.  Here’s a killer soundtrack he recorded for a blaxploitation film, Hell Up in Harlem.  It was rejected by director Larry Cohen for “not being funky enough.”  So James Brown released it as a double-album, and The Payback went to #1 on the Soul Albums chart for two weeks, cracked the Pop Albums Top 40, and became a landmark Funk classic, being one of the most-sampled albums of all time.  Larry Cohen obviously can’t tell his own ass from a hole in the ground, because James Brown is incapable of being “not funky enough.”
