Record Store Day Exclusive. Get On Down continues its very welcome obsession with James Brown’s stable of late ’60s and early ‘70s talent – much of it culled from his People Records label by bringing this first-time-ever on-vinyl package to the world. With 12 tracks spanning 1967 to 1975, each cut here packs an undeniable punch. Featuring James’ most talented side-people, including The JBs, Bobby Byrd, Marva Whitney, Lyn Collins and Vicki Anderson, Volume 3 goes even deeper in the cut than previous collections, with the Ohio-based studio crew The Dapps (featuring drummer / vocalist Beau Dollar), the Dee Felice Trio and even a cheekily named side crew called the A.A.B.B. (Above Average Black Band). The more that newcomers and diehard fans alike dig into the James Brown and People Records vaults, the more they realize that it’s a neverending source of truly next-level funk and soul music. And you can be sure this aural goodness will keep flowing to the public, thanks to the exhaustive efforts of Get On Down.
