1964: JB @ T.A.M.I.

1964: JB @ T.A.M.I.

There’s a new film portraying the life of entertainer James Brown. You youngsters need to see it, but after you’ve seen the 18 minute film (below) of Mr. Brown’s 1964 performance at the Teenage Awards Music International Show at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.

The Rolling Stones had to follow that act. Yikes.


“The Possessed: James Brown in Eighteen Minutes,” David Remnick, The New Yorker

“‘The T.A.M.I. Show’: A Groundbreaking ’60s Concert,” Milo Miles, NPR


“James Brown’s Limousine Soliloquy,” Philip Gourevitch, The New Yorker
