A key figure in the evolution of soul and funk music in the 1960s and 1970s, James Brown's records were then crucial to the development of hip hop in the 1980s, making him one of the most influential musicians in popular music. This biography examines the impact of a childhood of rural poverty in South Carolina and Georgia and recounts the story of this relentlessly hard-working performer and his often turbulent private life. Slightly off-mint. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
