Papa's Got A Brand New Couch - The James Brown Estate Sale

The one and only Godfather of Soul

Christie's held an auction of items from the estate of James Brown.
I just loved James Brown. He was a fierce original in all ways: the way he performed; the music he wrote; his hair-do; his clothes; his lifestyle; and his home furnishings.
The New York Times has the article about the sale HERE

Helllo: It's been awhile since I logged on to your Blog. Glad I did today as Jame's Brown was one of my favourite entertainers as well. I had read in one of Elvis Presley's bios thst he had great influence upon THE KING of Rock 'n Roll. (Am I telling my age?) I wonder what both of them actually thought of RAP. (God how I detest that music. It really has a psychological affect on me as I become very agitated when I listen to it. Something about its rhythm....:)
