James Brown was born on this day in 1933. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame reminds us of his many honorific titles: Soul Brother Number One, the Godfather of Soul, the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, Mr. Dynamite and even the Original Disco Man. As always, you can explore his work here at the library with both material by him and about him. If you need a suggestion on where to start, watch in awe of his 1964 performance in The T.A.M.I. Show (DVD 4041).
