The Life of James Brown : by Geoff Brown, : Geoff Brown : Omnibus Press Series : Softcover : Published by Omnibus Press : # OP51986
The Life of James Brown by : Geoff Brown

For three decades; James Brown dominated the changing face of post-war popular black music. Others were as inspirational in the short term; and several of his successors have been bigger pop stars; but none match Brown's independent authority; sustained influence; or commercial longevity. But while another generation danced to the pulse of James Brown; at the end of the eighties the man himself was back in a southern U.S. jail; a country mile or so from where he was first incarcerated in his teens. Between the two internments is the compelling story of a man who; by reading from his roots and striving determinedly for himself; came to represent in music and personal power the post-war emancipation of black America. This definitive biography is illustrated with many rare photographs and includes a comprehensive discography.
