Offered for sale is a sealed U.S. stereo copy of Excitement “Mr. Dynamite” by James Brown.
About this copy: This copy of Excitement “Mr. Dynamite” is a 1965 pressing on the King label of an album that was previously released in 1962 under the title of Shout & Shimmy and in 1964 under the title Good Good Twistin’ With James Brown, each of which had a completely different cover from this one.
While the cover is marked stereo, we cannot be certain that the album will actually play in stereo. It might be stereo, it might be rechanneled stereo, or it might be mono. We can’t find much documentation on this one, but the album contains material that dates as far back as 1958, so it’s hard to be sure.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact except for tiny breaks at the two right hand corners and a s 2″ (5 cm) split at the mouth of the cover.
A nice copy of a rare James Brown LP that rarely turns up in stereo. It’s the only copy we’ve seen.
Background: Released in 1962, Shout and Shimmy was a compilation album by James Brown, collecting tracks from his first four albums along with the then-new single “Shout and Shimmy.”
On an album named after the R&B Top 40 title hit and featuring the 1961 Top Ten R&B hit “I Don’t Mind,” James Brown & His Famous Flames can be heard making music in the variety of styles — blues, Little Richard-style rock, doo wop — out of which they eventually would develop the James Brown funk sound of the mid-’60s.
