Thanks to all who broke out in a cold sweat with us last night celebrating the Godfather of Soul in the cinema. Kevin Jones (not James) of the Emerald City Soul Club spun funky records before and after the screening. But of course the real treat was seeing rare 1960s performance footage of Soul Brother #1 big, loud and with an enthusiastic crowd! (When was the last time you heard howls, yells, appplause and even soul-claps in a cinema?) It was definitely a proper celebration of the hardest working man in showbusiness.
If you’re like me, you’ll call in sick for a day or two while you practice some of those dance moves!
