So You Think You Can Dance…

In the beginning was James Brown, Live at the Apollo. The concert that moved James Brown from a cult figure on the R&B circuit into the mainstream of American Music. But what moved James Brown the most–and the fastest–was a collection of dance moves no one had ever seen before¬†and that we’ve seldom seen since.¬†Almost a decade after his death (25 December 2006), he is still often imitated, never duplicated. Here’s a terrific six minute and change clip from YouTube featuring the one and only JB performing as only he can. The video is very uneven in quality but the dancing is not.
