JAMES BROWN - Fred Wesley & J.B.'s - Unissued People LP
Here is another one-of-a-kind James Brown item. A white label test pressing of an UNISSUED album by Fred Wesley and The J.B.'s from 1973!! The People label record has the number LP 5603 in the vinyl but that number was eventually assigned to the "DOING IT TO DEATH" album. This is an entirely different album!!! The title track has The JB's romping through "Watermelon Man" (is that James on drums??) and the balance of the album features Fred Wesley and some terrific big band arrangements of both well known tunes and originals. Titles include "Use Me", "Everybody Plays The Fool", "Get On The Good Foot", "Transmograpification", "Seulb", "Sweet Lovliness" and "Secret Love". This is a plain white label test pressing in strong VG condition - much of it plays VG+. It's been well cared for but does have some wear from play and handling. A super, super rare item you won't see again - it's safe to assume there were precious few of these pressed and most didn't survive.
