Nat Kendrick And The Swans (aka The James Brown Band) - Self Titled (CD)
Release Date: 08/07/12
Includes special unreleased James Brown track!
Nat Kendricks and The Swans is really The James Brown Band, also called The J.B.s. He informed me he was having a problem with Syd Nathan at King Records. Syd refused to let Brown record with The J.B.'s. Always believing in Brown and standing by him, I suggested we record him and his backup band under this pseudonym. We decided to cut an instrumental track and title it 'Do The Mashed Potatoes.' One of the repeated lines was for someone to shout 'Mashed Potatoes' and Brown volunteered.
