      This was James Brown's first TV appearance! According to JB in his autobiography: GODFATHER OF SOUL, he said he and The Flames were very nervous! But stated that Dick Clark made the feel very comfortable!

      James also stated that it was the first time they had to lip sync their songs, and that a couple of Flames fell behind in the words! I wish there was footage of this show!!!
