Bobby Byrd ‎"I Need Help (Live On Stage)" 1970

The singer Bobby Howard Byrd worked with James Brown from the mid 50s to the mid 70s (he actually asked Brown to join The Famous Flames in the early 50s), and was married to Vicki Anderson (who also sang with Brown), he also made some releases of his own. I Need Help is part recorded live (and some may be fake live) and part studio from 1969. The sound is of course very similar to the recordings James Brown did at the same time. Funky and groovy!
