SOMEONE WHO IS GREATER THAN THE STARS ABOVE

Even though we’ve already featured both the “Live at the Apollo” version of “Lost Someone” and its edited down single (as well as a modern day cover by Cat Power), here is the original 1961 hit single, James Brown’s fifth of the year; a few months later JB would make it the centerpiece of his Apollo performance.

  1. Most artists release 4 singles a year. James Brown would release one a month (sometimes more) and most of them were hits. After listening to this track I can hear why. Brilliant soul.

    1. Yeah, and once JB hit his stride he recorded very little that wasn't brilliant, as you say.
