James Brown – I Feel Good (Live 8, Edinburgh 2005)

By | January 25, 2016

This is the song that became Brown’s signature tune and gave him his famous catch phrase, “I Feel Good.”

This song has a very convoluted release history. Brown recorded it in September 1964 and leased it, along with some of his other songs, to Smash Records, who planned to release it as a single but couldn’t because Brown’s label, King Records, filed a lawsuit. In October 1964, a judge ruled that Smash Records would be allowed to issue only instrumental recordings by Brown, and all masters of vocals by JB would become property of King Records.
