We Feel Good- “Get On Up” Premiere Week: James Brown, Bobby Byrd and The JBs [RARE VIDEO] @NelsanEllis @ChadwickBoseman

Get On Up Premiere Week Rare James Brown

It’s time for all of the real soulheads to “Get On Up”! This Friday is the premiere of the highly anticipated biopic of James Brown, Get On Up. With an all-star cast including Chadwick Boseman (42), Nelsan Ellis (True Blood), and Jill Scott (soulhead.com perennial favorite), this movie has got to be extraordinary!

To curb our enthusiasm (or, to build it further!) we wish to present to you a week long series of  RARE James Brown videos and performances. To kick this thing off, we present this rare t.v. performance from 1971. It features James Brown as well as his right hand man, Bobby Byrd and their incredible band, The J.B.s. Apropos, they are performing “Get Involved”. You should!
