James Brown Gold Record “The Payback”
Soul-singer James Brown was awarded a gold record - this time for his single “The Payback.” Two years earlier, he received his first gold record for “Get On The Good Foot Part 1.” Interestingly, the “Godfather of Soul” had 42 other chart-ranking hits during his career. Though none won gold records, many - such as “I Feel Good,” “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag,” and “Living in America” - are more widely known.
