About '60s Funk & Soul:
"Funk" originated in the mid '60s when James Brown first introduced "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag." This infectious sound quickly caught the attention of the world and landed Mr. Brown the title of "The Godfather of Funk & Soul." The funk sound featured tight syncopated bass and drum back beats with "scratch" guitar rhythms playing over the groove. Simultaneously bands like Booker T & the
MG's were pioneering new sounds with their unique version of soul & rock 'n roll.
