James Brown - a very nice gift record album

The record on the left is called In the Jungle Groove.  It was given to me as a house-warming gift by Brian, the husband of one of Nancy's former work pals.  It is number 330 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.  It is a compilation album of songs written and recorded in the early '70's = but not released until 1986.   It has the much-sampled single "Funky Drummer" (from 1969) the album's title is from a song Brown recorded in 1970, but the full recording of the song "In the Jungle Groove" remains unissued.  Among many others, Clyde Stubblefield plays Drums, Bootsy Collins on Bass, and Maceo Parker – Tenor saxophone.
