Soul Tracks

The Godfather of Soul will always be remembered for upbeat and funky tracks such as 'I Got You (I Feel Good),' 'The Big Payback,' and 'Papa's Got a Brand New Bag.' There was another side to James Brown and it was evident in the ballads he sang. He was emotional, vulnerable and painfully honest. 1973's 'Mama's Dead' is a clear example of James' other side.
