1968

THERE WAS A TIME * JAMES BROWN * POLYDOR 56740 * UK

Brother Rap in a nostalgic mood; which I think is meant to be a bit ironic as while he was singing this song on  stage about dances he "used to do" he would probably be breaking out into those very moves. This cut was a favourite in the post Mod clubs, like Oscars, where those folk would go who weren't into the Hippy groove but still wanted to dance, and not sit on the floor deep in a spiritual thingy.
