Being recorded by another artist is the nicest form of admiration towards the original song and it’s composer. We do not speak of stealing a horn riff here and a drum beat there. It’s not about sampling at all. We speak of real music from real musicians. As one of the ultimate James Brown Fans who is really into his music I selected my nicest 27 James Brown Tributes (there are of course many more). Look or better hear to whom James Brown was an inspiration. Apart from other classical soul singers you’ll discover some nice “blue eyed” soul covers among them just as some serious Jazz interpretations. One remark: James Brown didn’t write “Prisoner Of Love” but had a hit with it and I simply could not resist to include the rendition of Etta James!
