James Brown at TAMI

I just heard an old interview with JB on the radio (coinciding with the release of the new bio-pic), and I indulged in rewatching one of the great performances of all time, his appearance on TAMI (Teen Age Music International) in 1964. This is the famous time when he was irritated that The Stones were the closing act. His punishment to the white boy-band and arrangers of the concert was to outshine them and everyone else in every possible way. Among other things, he invents the moonwalk and his famous cape routine.
