Sho is Funky Down Here and The Grodeck Whipperjenny are a pair of albums that are the
result of an unlikely but highly productive musical relationship between James Brown, a
superstar at the creative and commercial peaks of his long career, and David Matthews, a
then young arranger-musician whose limited professional experience had little or nothing
to do with the funk and soul of his collaborator.
James Brown Sho Is Funky Down Here
James Brown s psychedelic album, created by his then-bandleader David Matthews, and
issued at the same time as Matthews classic The Grodeck Whipperjenny. Underground,
fuzzy, rambling psych-funk. The genesis of Brown s Talking Loud And Saying Nothing,
a 1990s hip hop sample staple, informing A Tribe Called Quest, Large Professor,
Brand Nubian and others.
Both albums were lacquered directly from the original master tapes at Capitol Studios.
This is the first official reissue of both of these rare titles. Each album contains an
extensive booklet with full annotation, liner notes by Brown historian Alan Leeds and
Vinyl release of James Brown - Sho Is Funky Down Here. Released through GET ON DOWN and available on LP.
