James Brown with Bootsy Collins: Brother Rapp (Paris, 1971)

Here’s some terrific old school music for you, with an 18 year old Bootsy Collins laying it down for James Brown.

This performance of “Brother Rapp” was filmed in 1971, like another video we featured of The Godfather of Soul with Bootsy from the same year.

  1. How can Bootsy play his Bass, hanging up like that? ? However, I do hear him Digging into them Bass Stings!

  2. YES. THIS. This is the very definition of Groove. Overwhelmingly powerful. If you aren’t moved by this, check your pulse, because you might just be dead.
