Hot Buttered Soul

James Brown: Mother Popcorn

Here's the mother of all popcorn songs. Recorded in 1969 the popping drum beat makes the title which came from the popular dance all too clear. Bandleader and frequent songwriting partner, Alfred "Pee Wee" Ellis, came up with the rhythm for Mother Popcorn while waiting in line at a Cincinnati music store. This is a true soul classic. Go get Star Time.

Preston Love: Cissy Popcorn

Also recorded in 1969, Cissy Popcorn perfectly blends the JB groove with a Cissy Strut lope. Get this track on SuperFunk3.

The RDM Band: Butter That Popcorn

The pace gets wild on this rare jam. I have to be honest I don't know much about this band so I would appreciate some enlightenment. I found the track on the Josh Davis & Keb Darge compilation Funk Spectrum: Real Funk for Real People.
