Papa's Got A Brand New Bag...

...And Dufus Got a Brand New Blog. Welcome to the first official week of dufusdownbeat where we'll take a look back at some of the acts from the 60s and 70s, share a bit of musical history and run some classic clips.

The "hardest working man in show business", the "godfather of soul" James Brown seemed like a likely artist to formally get us started. He rose to fame in the 50s and 60s with an amazing stage show comprised of synchronized back up singers, a chuggin' rhythm section and a honking horn section. Here's an all-too brief medley of Papa's Got A Brand New Bag and I Feel Good from the Ed Sullivan Show in the mid-60s.
